Schlock Mercenary is a serial sci-fi strip with long interconnected story arcs, the shortest is about four weeks, the longest is about six months, that also manages to deliver a comedic gag every day. It's about a group of space mercenaries with a mix of talents and even more mixed scruples, who end up mixed up in the first truly galactic war in history. The title character, Schlock, is a "carbosilicate amorph," which is a fancy way of saying pile of sentient glop.
