Sergeant Schlock lost his eyes, and thanks to a quirk of amorph biology he needs to steal new ones. Naturally, he asks Tagon's Toughs to help. Then an offer for real employment arrives, and Schlock, Tagon, and the rest of the company find themselves engaged in a battle for galactic domination. Admiral Breya Andreyasn has attacked a Buuthandi (think "Dyson's Helium Balloon"), and needs their help to steal its technology and perhaps rescue eighty billion gate-clones.

This second volume of Schlock Mercenary picks up where The Tub of Happiness left off, and features all of the original strips and footnotes, plus concept art, guest art, deck plans for the Post-Dated Check Loan, and eleven pages of all-new strips featuring Schlock's very first combat mission. Gird up your annie-plant, grab an obligatory fiddly-bit and prepare for The Teraport Wars!
Howard's story telling has improved and evolved. He is consistently able to maintain a great level of humor that not only doesn't get in the way of the story, but often moves the storyline along in very unexpected ways.
This one has a personalized illustration of Petey in the back of the book by Howard Tayler.
Ends with bonus story "Schlock Mercenary: Altered States".
Contains strips spanning November 11 2001 through March 8 2003.
The introduction to this book was written by Brandon Sanderson.
