Episode 648

Read the comic here.

I thought about using a different photo for the "security footage" but realized using the actual strip 640 would be a) funnier and b) easier. I did have to spend some time playing with the "playback special effect", but I think it turned out nicely.

In-strip Wash is referring, of course, to the fact that he's lifted directly from the Whedon-verse. Not to mention the past in-strip appearances of Batman, Robin, Spider-Man Zombie, the entire cast of S-Team....

Chris - do you mean Whedon-verse or Wheedon-verse, as in Joss Wheedon?

There seems to be a lot of search results on both, if it's a misspelling, would be nice to know.

Am pretty sure it's Joss Whedon...

What is this Whedonverse you speak of? I followed the link but it was on about the Buffyverse and as far as I knew, Iron Man predated Buffy :S

chris, in the list of characters you borrowed you forgot the main characters from the milkman.

@Takua, the list wasn't meant to be all inclusive. But, yes, the Milkman's cast also guest starred. But why stop there? There's also Van Halen, Hannah Montana, the cast of the Matrix....

@the rest:
Yes, "Whedonverse" means the universe(s) created by Joss Whedon. Scroll down a bit in the Wiki article. Wash is technically from the Firefly-Verse, a subset of the Whedon-verse. Or would be, if he wasn't just a cosplayer PRETENDING to be Wash, as established long ago.
