A comic book written by Mark Barnard and drawn by Terrie Smith about the owners of a small interstellar freight service, flamboyant ringtail cat Chester Magreer and his partner Christophe Deck as they deal with cyborg ex-girlfriends, demented space pirates, ineffectual cosmic ninjas, the hopping dead, a shape-changing and extremely lethal pseudo-Chester, masked wrestlers, and life in general.
Radio Comix is posting the entire series online.
- Bi the Way: Ches occasionally attempts to seduce women and Deck has at least one ex-girlfriend.
- Cargo Cult: Once some indigenous otters mistake them for gods, it's just a scam though
- Casual Interstellar Travel
- Distressed Damsel: That girl they accidentally rescued from the raiders in the first book.
- Giant Spider: Encountered in the jungle in issue #5, and featured on the cover.
- Has Two Daddies: Ches and Deck's adoptive daughter Lambie, of course.
- Horse of a Different Color: They look like horses, but have fangs and three-toed feet.
- Mistaken for Special Guest: By a band of raiders from whose leader Chester swiped a distinctive gemstone.
- My Hovercraft Is Full of Eels: the first issue has Ches and Deck attempting to buy horses using a poorly written phrasebook.
Ches: I have a frog and much money, I only pray you will take me for all I am worth.
- Obstructive Bureaucrat: Councilor Taran, of course she also has a bit of a grudge against Chester.
- Perpetual Poverty: Due largely to Chester's spending habits.
- Powered Armor: Worn by certain law enforcement or military groups, usually bulky enough to be mistaken for robots.
- Psycho Ex-Girlfriend: Knife, and her last three fiance's before Chris are all dead.
- Sapient Ship: Though a bit flaky.
- Space Pirates: They are recruited by a rather incompetent pirate captain in the second issue. Knife and her gang are another matter.
- Teleporters and Transporters: Possibly the only thing on "Captain" Regulo's ship that works.
- The Alleged Starship: Regulo's ship, he leased it for cheap with no "frills" added (like new wiring, a radio, weapons).
- We Can Rebuild Her: Knife, after the one time Deck shot straight.
