Second panel.

Last sentence should read: "YOU'RE A BORN DIPLOMAT"

Currently the "A" is missing.

Are you certain you meant "probative" rather than "probing"?

It would have to be a machine that made extremely small stiches to earn the prefix "nano".

And that could be a very usefull feature.

2005-04-27 "Sir, what about "butterfly effect?" Any trading we do will effect the future."

I'm pretty sure that should read "...affect the future."

About as much time as it takes their competitors to give you the finger.

Possible art issue: on 2013-02-27, the other panels have a scribble that (I assume) represents chest hair--the last panel does not.

Panel 2, Kaff tells Karl that Alexia, ex "Sancum" Adroit is there. There is a typo, it should be Sanctum

Cheers

The past seems to be getting closer:

http://www.schlockmercenary.com/2013-02-16 Third panel:

I saved the galaxy from a forty thousand-year-old plot laid by dark matter intelligences.


http://www.schlockmercenary.com/2005-07-10 Sixth panel:

Then, 100,000 years ago, the Paan'uri provided the F'Sherl-Ganni with instructions for creating a zero-point-energy drive at the core of the Milky-Way galaxy.

Really old typo. http://www.schlockmercenary.com/2000-07-09

Is it Poliflorian or Polyflorian?

Last panel, it says "foreigner. while it should be "foreigner."

It's missing a " at the end.

Panel 2: Maybe "mechanism" was intended instead of "mechanisim". Although "mechanisim" does sound like an interesting bit of technobabble.

Effect could actually be correct there if he's implying that their actions will cause the future rather than change it.

2nd panel:
"When you last departed Sol system you did so in the wake of thousands of kilocreds of damages, fines and moving violations."

Condensed it means "Schlock left in the wake of the damages etc." i.e. following the damages etc. Since the wake consists of the damages etc, wouldn't it rather be that "he left a wake of damages etc..."?

"When you last departed Sol system you did so leaving a wake of thousands of kilocreds of damages, fines and moving violations."?
"When you last departed Sol system you a wake of thousands of kilocred os damages, fines and moving violations."?

IUt would probably track better as :

"When you last departed Sol system you left in your wake thousands of kilocreds ..."

Transcript of http://www.schlockmercenary.com/2008-05-23

The first panel isn't transcribed. It should be:
"Eatonrun Commander: Touch-and-Go, this is Eatonrun. Did you just fire on the port we're going to use?"

I noticed because it's an awesome strip and I wanted to quote it. :D

Note: Earth's 31st- (and very nearly 32nd-) century population is an order of magnitude larger than than anybody expected a thousand years or so earlier.
