Didja Notice?


On page 1,  Rasalia Robles de Meras says, "Muévelo!" This is Spanish for "Move it!"


On page 11, Lu says something in Chinese as he's being shoved out the airlock.


In panel 2 of page 16, the bandage on Salo's nose suddenly disappears, but is there again afterwards.


On page 16,  Rasalia says, "No! Nunca! No-no puedo ir al hospital!" This is Spanish for "No! Never! I can't go to the hospital!"


On page 17, Salo says he is from a world called Sagrada. This is the first mention of this world in the 'Verse. Sagrada is Spanish for "sacred".


On page 18 Lu mentions knowing a cow doctor on Huan Lo who owes them a favor for chasing off some bandits. This is the first mention of this world in the 'Verse.


On page 19, Simon and Kaylee are seen now living on Bryson's Rock, a moon of Greenleaf in the Red Sun system. Greenleaf was previously mentioned in "Out of Gas" and The Shepherd's Tale.


Also on page 19, Zoe and her crew drive what appears to be the same hovermule used by the Serenity crew in "Triggered".


Simon now has a dog named Jayne because it's "dumb, smelly and loves to eat."


Simon and Kaylee now have two kids, Teddy and May ("Brand New 'Verse" Part 3 reveals that the kids' full first names are Tedwinnum and Maywinnet). "Brand New 'Verse" Part 5 reveals that the two kids are twins.


On page 22, Teddy utters a curse in Chinese.
