Comic #863

1 Serron: {returning to the bridge} Okay, I'm back. That unpleasant job's done.
2 Iki Piki: You dragged Paris' putrefying body, writhing with alien parasites, into the airlock?
3 Serron: No, I've been down to her old cabin to remove all the floral decorations and Duran Duran posters.

For anyone who missed the 1980s, Duran Duran were one of the hottest pop bands around, and the precursor to many of the "boy bands" who have arisen since. The band took their name from the villain of the classic erotic science fiction movie Barbarella, starring Jane Fonda.

Oddly, Duran Duran never formally split up or stopped making music, and they've seen something of a revival in live concerts in recent years.

2014-08-01 Rerun commentary: As was pointed out to me back when this comic ran the first time, Duran Duran were not really a "boy band". They differed because the guys in Duran Duran actually played musical instruments.

Also, since this comic first appeared nine years ago, Duran Duran have released two more albums, they headlined the 2012 London Olympics opening ceremony celebration concert in Hyde Park, and are currently at work recording another album.

So it's no wonder they're still famous in the distant future!
