Commander Kevyn Andreysn has gone primitive, along with Elf, Brad, Nick, Pronto, and Schlock, but Kevyn is missing some memories. "What you don't know can't hurt you" doesn't hold true here, because what Kevyn doesn't know has already killed him at least once, and it's about to happen again..."
This one plays with the flash forward quite heavily. It can be uncomfortable until you figure out how they'd all gotten to where they are at the beginning of the story, but it certainly keeps you wondering.
This one has a personalized illustration of loincloth Nick in the back of the book by Howard Tayler.
Ends with bonus story "Schlock Mercenary: Coda in the Corona".
The introduction to this book was written by David Brin.
Contains strips spanning July 24 2005 through August 16 2006.
