A British Sci-Fi comedy webcomic inspired by shows like ''Franchise/TheHitchhikersGuideToTheGalaxy'' and ''Series/RedDwarf'', ''[[http://www.jump-leads.com/ Jump Leads]]'' is the story of Thomas Meaney and Richard Llewellyn, trainees in the Lead Service - a sort-of self-appointed "Reality Police" who travel to [[TheMultiverse parallel Universes]] and ensure everything is occurring as it should. They've hit a bit of a problem, however - a disastrous set of circumstances during their first field training exercise have left them stranded in a broken [=JumpShip=], aimlessly jumping from one random Universe to the next. But with Meaney trying hard to return to the career he loves and Llewellyn content to meander aimlessly through existence, getting back to Lead H.Q. continues to look like an impossible task...
