Didja Notice?


On the Daniel Dos Santos cover of this issue, notice that Jayne is wearing the severed ear of a fallen opponent around his neck. The knife he holds here appears a bit different from any we saw him carry in the TV series.


The scene on page 4 is a flashback to "Out of Gas", with Wash showing Mal the big red button he's rigged up to recall both shuttles if Mal comes up with a miracle to save the ship. The dialog presented here is exact from the episode.


On page 7, Jayne says "gorammit". This is a frequently used substitution for "God dammit" in the 'verse, similar to "gorram" for "God damn".
