Oh... my... god. That's hysterical! [Big Grin]

One typo in the comic: "with a sorrid past" should be "with a sordid past".

I think it's a neological portmanteau, combining "sordid" with "torrid". [Wink]

What about the bottom right? "Resident phycho"? Shouldn't that be psycho?

I don't watch firefly, so I guess there could be a phycho, whatever that is.

Ha ha! [Big Grin]

from http://whedonesque.com/comments/8359

"a Reaver medic?
Condition gunshot wound, treatment eat patient.
Broken leg, eat him.
Sore throat, eat him.
Tennis elbow, eat him."

"Wouldn't the eating treatment only be attempted after the rape treatments had proved ineffective?"

Something like a reformed Borg, but much more discheveled, and in general, not Jeri Ryan or Patrick Stewart. [Razz]

"another JoyofTech"? Makes it sound like he's been in one previously. True story?

The reaver character kinda looks like a klingon... or one of the apes from planet of the apes.

Okay, Peebs. How do you do that?! Is there a list somewhere of the JoTs and their contents?

I did a double-take when I saw the "snippet" of the comic with just the ship in it...for a moment, it looked like a White Star from Babylon 5.

(I miss that show...somehow, I haven't been able to work up the same enthusiasm for any new SF show since it finished its run. Which is probably why I never saw Firefly.)
