I've mentioned Freefall before. It is a classic case of Webcomic Time - the phenomenon in which a webcomic covers the action so closely that it takes several weeks or months to cover a single day of actual plot.

Not that this is intended as a criticism. Freefall is a great comic.

2018-06-10 Rerun commentary: It probably took so long because the sails were slack for three days. The Lego pirate ship is very cool, but the sails don't billow properly as if they were full of wind.

I suppose I could have rigged something.
