Dang! The story’s (sort of) halfway complete! We sure have come a long way in 2-and-1/3 years, huh.
If you’re a returning from a break, and looking for a recap to find your place, here you go!
If you’ve read the comic and you’re hungry for more detail on the world, there’s a whole archive of worldbuilding columns here!
And as always: Holy shit, I still can’t quite believe my super-indulgent gay space poliscifi comic has any following at all, let alone all y’all wonderful dorks ❤
At this halfway point, let’s give ourselves a timeline of every major event shown or mentioned:
