Tonight's comic is labeled both, in big letters, Book 17: A Little Immortality, *and* in text, Book 16: Big Dumb Objects, Part 4

We never did see Big Dumb Objects, Part 5.

"Did it really take four months to repair the flagship."

"Did it really take four months to repair the flagship?"

Massey's last name is spelled wrong (or perhaps right), in his very first appearance.

Does Howard even read these things anymore? :)

In 2017-04-05, the brown one is identified as Hazz. But previously in 2017-03-23, the green one is identified and responds as Hazz. Hazz continues to be brown on 2017-04-02, so 2-1 suggests Hazz is the brown. Hazz seems to consistently have two sets of whiskers in all cases.

Meanwhile, in 2017-03-24, the brown is now identified as Putzho, while in 2017-04-03, the green is identified as Putzho. Putzho always has one set of whiskers.

"Downlifted" should probably be "Downloaded" (http://www.schlockmercenary.com/2017-04-07)

In 2017-4-9's strip, "I have list of things" in panel 2 should be "I have a list of things".

4-27, third panel: Ebby's balloon. "Daggermother" should have quotes on both sides, or none.

Third panel: It has an indexing agent!

(Unless it's meant to be some sort of cheezeburger reference, but it doesn't seem right for the character to make that reference).

Comic says "Book 17" instead of "Book 18." Also, the comic is still sorted under the Book 17 epilogue.

Minor nitpick.
Food "calories" are actually kilocalories.
A one-"calorie" beverage has 1,000 calories in it.
And a 500 calorie hamburger would probably be cardboard, whereas a 500 "calorie" or 500 kilocalorie hamburger sounds pretty good right now.
So, off by a factor of 3.

Today's strip - https://www.schlockmercenary.com/2018-03-31

2nd panel, "Mess? Kombou, just send prisoner to Fangstorm." should be "Mess? Kombou, just send the prisoner to Fangstorm."

The first panel refers to the "Maxim 41 resurrectees". Shouldn't that be Maxim 39?

Today's strip https://www.schlockmercenary.com/2018-11-05, fourth panel, the commodore speaking:

I'm not a native english speaker, but shouldn't it be "... we haven't given..." instead of "...give..."?

[edit: strip has been corrected in the meantime]

Possibly found another one in https://www.schlockmercenary.com/2004-07-22

Panel three: "Rule Number One!", shouldn't it be "Maxim Number One!" nowadays?

Says "Executive officers are bastions of great whatever-the-captain-needs bastions of."

I know what you were going for here, but rather than "whatever-the-captain-needs-bastions-of" it reads like you changed sentence structure midway through and duplicated some words.

Is there a reason 'Familiar' is capitalized in the last panel of this strip: https://www.schlockmercenary.com/2019-03-24
