Seriously industrial-looking tubes

They were told, these three distaff members of Gnosis College’s pilot ROTC program, that they had been selected for a very special for of SERE training, and being put naked into the tube was only an initial exercise therein. Who could object to being selected for special training? It would be a real career builder! And besides, it had been approved by their trusted commanding officer. Only several hours later did they begin to suspect that the “Colonel” who had contacted them might not have been who he claimed to be and that their fates were not in the military careers they expected…

Well, not really. This illustration is actually Test Subject 54 984 – Muriel by CG artist SkatingJesus who, when he extended his kind permission to me to reblog this image, suggested also the possibility of a story to go along with it. I can’t resist a good tube girl or the story that goes along with her, so there it is.

The story that actually accompanies the illustration is as follows:

Our cyborgs found some interesting stuff, in the Dead Zone. It would have been a shame if every member of the Resistance had been sentenced to death, we need more human flesh to study and test. These three female Resistance members will perfectly suit to our future testing. We have to progress on creating a synthetic skin able to travel time…

In addition to SkatingJesus’s DeviantArt site, you can also visit his Renderotica store, where you can buy his comics, some of which look pretty darn cool, let me tell you.

Vortex coffin

This pre-Code comics image plays neatly with both the “coffin stuffer” and “tube girl” themes so loving explored in the pulp era less than a generation earlier. It is reblogged from this 28 September 2015 post at Infernal Wonders. The now-dead tumblr (“Malignantly Useless,” a fine Thomas Ligotti-derived name!) on which the image first appeared attributed the image to Issue #6 of Marvel’s Astonishing series (1951-1957), and a trip to this series’s entry in the Grand Comics Database does indeed turn up the cover.

Malignantly Useless attributes the cover to Norman Steinberg.

Another girl for the monster king’s tubes

This image is reblogged from this 5 July 2015 post at Infernal Wonders. The tube girls are there in the background, and I would guess that our comely captive here is about to be joining them soon. The illustration is the work of American comics artist Larry Todd (b. 1948).

Your colleagues are questionable, madam

This image is Shrunken Specimen by American digital artist Carl Brutananadilewski (“demontroll”), who has a DeviantArt page here. He adds the following descriptive comment:

Mysteriously, the alien crystals reduced Dr. Foster to about one fifth of her previous height. The other scientists thought it would be best to keep her under isolation for further study.

You would think they might at least get her a towel, or something.

Molly Whipple does some tube girls

Longtime readers here will remember my friend Molly Whipple, who did a run here with a guest tale of Gnosis College called Blonde Justice. I’m pleased to be able to report that she’s now doing a comic over at The Duck Webcomics with one of her iconic characters as the eponymous heroine: Chickfighter: The Adventures of a Postmodern Ingenue. Will there be tube girls? You betcha:

Bubbling Lola

She sure looks cheerful for a girl about to be bubbled away.

“Bubble Tube Lola” commissioned by Faustus and created by Sketchwork. Please do not republish or alter without permission of the creators.

A merry little bit of bespoke art for your Labor Day enjoyment. Our heroine for today is Lola, a character created by an artist who works under the name Sketchwork, creating among other things a fair amount of fetish and vore art. Lola has a cheery attitude toward life, an apparent distaste for clothes, and a tendency to give into erotic temptations that gets her into some very problematic circumstances: the poor girl just can’t help herself, it seems. Here Lola has been lured into a bubble tube, of the mad science sort pioneered by Zoltan Odbol in my polyglot story “Bubbles: A Tale of Soapy Mad Science.” She seems to be enjoying the experience, just like all the others…

If you like this sort of work you can support Sketchwork on Patreon as I do.

You can get in touch with Sketchwork at Eka’s Portal. The artist also maintains a stream at Picarto TV as well as pages at Hentai Foundry and DeviantArt.

Amputee pods

These abbreviated young women appear in an illustration reblogged from this 8 March 2015 post at Infernal Wonders. They come from the pen and the imagination of French artist Joël Jurion, a really extraordinary illustrator a sample of whose art you can find at this Masters of Anatomy page. You can follow him on twitter at @JoelJurion and support him at this Tipee page.
