Shouldn't that be Night Goggle?

We get back to the regular strip (as opposed to the Cartoonist strips) in PE(aott) today, which is a goodness. And this one highlights a good way to launch a new plotline -- it's one step away from In Media Res. "Hey guys, let's do X!" "But that would be stupid." "I'm in!" Short, formulaic, to the point, and effective. Since this screams "we're starting a new plotline," this also gives notice to new readers that this is probably a good place to start reading from. Nice bonus, I think.

Also, the obligatory "Alien" arrow still cracks me up.
