Webcomic: Tranquility Base
Yeah, there's a cat in space.

Spacedude: There. The new sign is completed.
Chief Houston Texas: Very nice. One thing, aren't there two "Ls" in "Tranquillity"?
Spacedude: According to the O.E.D. both spellings are acceptable, this is just a pre-17th Century variant still commonly used in the U.S.
Chief Houston Texas: I see. Did you check that before or after you made the sign?

Tranquility Base is a twice-weekly science-fiction parody with geeky overtones, and also a bit of pop-culture, literature and whatever else takes the author's fancy. Tends to be one-shot jokes and short-arcs - the fourth wall is optional. Very British in flavour. It is a LEGO Photo Comic, first published in August 2007 by Louise Dade.

Starting with the Attack of the Blips storyline (a loose parody/homage of Battlestar Galactica), story arcs have got longer with greater continuity, and although the Blip story was "resolved" by the end of Volume III (Dec. 2010), its effects are still being felt into Volume IV and the reset button has been left alone.

Currently in the middle of Volume V, but on an enforced hiatus.

Tranquility Base is part of the Brick Comic Network.
