Strictly speaking 12 months, 15 days since his last appearance. Hi Kaff!

(I actually thought it had been longer, but it turns out book 15 was shorter than book 14, which may be the first time in many years that a book was shorter than the one before).

Anyone want to guess what he's been up to?

Apparently, his dad is an admiral now.

the dialog specifies Commodore - unless you think that was addressed to Kaff.

In-comic it has only been about 7 to 10 days. While Tagon's Toughs can certainly wreak a lot of havoc during that short a time, my money is on paperwork: ten thousand starship (http://www.schlockmercenary.com/2014-07-13) title transfers would be enough to swallow most organizations whole.

But look at the ovals on his shoulders: they're single-bar admiral's insignia.

However, Kaff is wearing his usual captain's bolts, Karl is in conversation with Iafa, and there doesn't seem to be anyone else around who might be a commodore. There have been navies that used "Commodore" as the lowest form of admiral, and it's arguably a better name than "Rear Admiral, lower half" as the USN currently does it.

Here's a few more strips to support that Karl Tagon is a commodore, not an admiral.

It is interesting that he's wearing ovals and not the vertical lightning bolt we've previously seen used for commodores, though.

The thing I find myself curious about is whether or not those smaller yellow craft detaching from the Broken Wind are more corvettes like the Neosynchronicity. Maybe EXACTLY like.

Perhaps a nod to the Oafan's supplying the ships?
Those ships are ALL Ovals. Hmmmmm?

Enter Broken Wind. Given the way the Toughs go through ships, I have to wonder how long this one will last. Granted, this is the most impressive one since Post-Dated Check Loan, but the way things tend to go, that might just mean it gets blown up faster.

Kaff is still Captain, Karl is Commodore, straight out of Murtaugh's mouth.

I wonder what Kevyn is, given his uniform appears to have changed.

He's probably the captain of Cindercone.
