Picking up the story where we last left off... (Looks like Niska's advertising staff is really kicking it into high gear on the last day of campaigning.)

Heh heh, LOVE the shot of them approaching Serenity. Sunset in the background... great choice!

Can I ask, why beagles? Is it an inside joke? Did I miss something?

Why Beagles? You must have missed "Safe".

ZOE: Next time we smuggle stock, let's make it something smaller.
WASH: Yeah, we should start dealing in those black-market beagles.

LOL! Genius! *pressing index finger into the middle of the forehead*
I love the shot of them standing near Serenity with the sunset in the background too. Keep up the shiny work!

Love the Niska Billboard in the background! Looks like Badger is going to lose to the Greater Evil.

That must have been fun putting all the beagles in!
How do you herd beagles anyway???? :D

I printed and posted a bunch of these for my Halloween party. They were a big hit!

These are great! Thanks!

Top notch. Top notch!

*applauds loudly* oh yes, I love these, keep up the good work!

LOL! I love the billboard! It seems pretty realistic for the situation. I have a copy of that sticker on my folder for school, and kids keep asking me, "Who is Niska?" Most of the time they pronounce it wrong. But I tell them, “He’s third party." And then I tell them to vote solid." Then they just look at me like I’m crazy, and walk off. Anyway, great comic as always, and I can't wait to see more Serenity Park! Remember; don’t vote, unless it's for Niska.

I'll join in the cheerleading!

Wonderful work, Stizo. The sunset shot especially.

uh, is it just me, or is there a man in white just to the left of the billboard peeking over the hill in the first box?

Serenity Park - 020 - Delusions of Eloquence
For those unfamiliar with Serenity Park, see the thread: for previous comics. This comic is dedicated to the die-hards who put up with my consistent lack of productivity. :)

Serenity Park 19: Shadow Puppet Theatre!
Subtitles added for the reaver-speak impaired. Note: The shadow is supposed to resemble the profile of a T-rex.

INCREDIBLY MAJORLY HUGE AND ENORMOUS SPOILER WARNING!! THIS MEANS YOU, FOOLISH MORTALS!! For those wondering, yes the last panel is mostly accurate. The only difference was I sitting down, and said it relatively quiet…ok, somewhat quiet…err, kinda quiet…not as loud as most. Anyways, to answer other questions I’m sure some of you have: the reason the other people in the theater are silhouettes are because I don’t have the kind of time to create that many different people, expressions, etc; also the Chinese from panel 2 translates to: “You're looking wonderful, old friend.” P.S. – I tried changing my major to “Alliance Operative” but apparently the Alliance academy only accepts gifted applicants…go figure.

Serenity Park 17: Bright Ideas
...a little late but here it is. DISCLAIMER: I am NOT trying to bash Canadians. (I don’t live that far from the border so I happen to know a few.) The joke is merely playing off the fact that I made the reavers resemble the Canadians from South Park. DISCLAIMER REDUX: Pre-emptive SPOILER WARNING for the next SP comic. If you haven’t seen the movie yet (though I can’t imagine why) don’t worry, it has nothing to do with the overall story arc. It just deals with my reaction to the movie. :p

Serenity Park 16: PSA - Serenity Release
Counting down the hours till I see the BDM....

Serenity Park 15 - Space Monkeys
Previously on SP (for those who forgot): Serenity & Co. picked up a cargo load of Black Market Beagles (the most illegal of illegal substances), and after having been boarded by Alliance Feds are now on the way to their destination. Anyway, I hope to have another comic done within a few days here. (SP Trivia! The colony pop. is also the month & day of the release of Serenity. :p )

Serenity Park 14: Public Service Announcement: Reavers
Who said web comics can't be educational? This one is full of information every browncoat needs to know. Plus, I haven’t gotten to use Book much and this allowed me to do so (he probably sounds exactly like Chef). Also, I had too much fun deciding what to use for reavers. (My apologies to our Canadian brethren; but hey, it is kinda funny.)

Serenity Park 13 - I call her "Vera"
Good ol' Jayne and Wash. I imagine Jayne must get pretty lonely in space. Considering the attitude the rest of the crew has towards him (not overwhelmingly negative but not necessarily positive either), I bet this happens pretty often. Anyways, next comic should come around the end of the week. Later.

Serenity Park 12 – Too Much Firefly...
...yes, there IS such a thing. Below I present the perfect example. I’m sure that most Browncoat guys have this dream (don’t lie, you know you have!). Anyway, for those who have been wondering where the hell I’ve been, for you I have good news, and bad news. Good news, I do plan to keep doing the comic. Bad news, life decided to rent a cement truck and run me over with it, repeatedly. Unfortunately this means I have no time to make SP comics (today’s is one I had sitting around). My school load just got enormous and with everything else going on I have no time remaining for this (seriously, I got 8 hours of sleep TOTAL for the last 5 days). The soonest I can see this getting better is the end of February. So effective now SP is on hiatus until my load gets lighter and I have time to spend on it. In other words, we’re still flying, but just out of gas for awhile. C-ya, Stizo PS – Merry Winter-een-mas! (

11 - Companions, Go Figure
Whoa, it's been a long time since I posted one of these. Anyway, the saga resumes. I guess I'll continue this story arc through to the end then go back to stand-alone comics. They are easier to come up with and people seem to like them better anyway. So, I hope you enjoy this one and I'll try to post another next week. Later. (Note: There is a beagle tail poking out somewhere in every panel. If you’re really bored, try and see if you can find them all.)
