The Race: Part 1
Great, and you JUST finished paying off the settlement over the Wayne Coyne hamster ball incident.
Title text: Great, and you JUST finished paying off the settlement over the Wayne Coyne hamster ball incident.


This is sort of a continuation of 139: I Have Owned Two Electric Skateboards.

Firefly was a television series aired by FOX in 2002 that got cancelled mid-way through, but has a large fan base nowadays (for a more comprehensive explanation, see the Wikipedia page). The star of the show was Captain Malcolm (or Mal) Reynolds, played by Nathan Fillion.

So in this comic, Megan tells Cueball that Nathan Fillion has an electric skateboard. Cueball immediately starts planning a trip to visit and race Nathan Fillion.

The title text references an earlier comic (211: Hamster Ball Heist), where Cueball kidnaps Wayne Coyne in his hamster ball.

All comics in "The Race" series:

This series was released on 5 consecutive days (Monday-Friday) and not over the usual Monday/Wednesday/Friday schedule.


Megan: Huh, cool. Nathan Fillion (Mal from Firefly) has an electric skateboard. Just like you!
[Cueball leaves the room]
Megan: Did you hear that? Nathan-
Ratchet Zip Buckle
[Cueball returns wearing helmet, knee pads, elbow pads, sunglasses and holding his electric skateboard]
Cueball: I heard. Gimme the computer. I need to book a flight.

I read the last panel almost visualizing the scene, and "Gimme the computer. I want to Book a flight" has a strong rhyme with Sean Paul's Single [1], is it just me or Randall's got more in it ?
