Yeah, me too. Awesome find.

Did anyone else get the impression that the author might really, really, miss Firefly?

I suppose that would go a long way toward explaining the Papyrus font, actually. Well, if it's an homage to Firefly, I guess it's acceptable. I'll give it another try soon.

Well, he might also really, really, miss Wing Commander or any one of a bunch of sicfi games or shows, but Firefly was the first that sprang to mind.

To be a perfect comic for my personal taste it needs a little more scientific/technical stuff and lot less implants. Other than these two - it's awesome.

Considering how the author espouses the virtues of Firefly and explains all the references to it that he worked in as they come up in the text commentary, yeah, I'd say he does.

It hasn't actually been a regular update schedule, unfortunately. It's jumped around quite a bit. But he's kept updating regardless, and that's a very good sign for a webcomic.

I haven't read it entirely yet, but it was regular until 2008. Sometimes the author announced a different update schedule, it's been floating from 3 times a week to 2 times a week to 3 times a week again, to 1 time a week when he was in college. I call that regular :D
