<boggle> You never heard of him? Yowza! He was up against the
Foglios for a the graphic-novel Hugo last year, and again this year I
think. One of the top webcomic artists on the net, who's gone ten years
updating 7days/week without ever missing a single comic (and he had two
kids during that time, too). He writes a story and a universe where
Miles&Co would fit right in, after a little time to adjust. Very Space
Comic Opera (or would it be Comic Space Opera?), going up into
Lensman-ish levels of galactic epicness on occasion without ever losing
its human (ahem) touch.
Schlock Mercenary -- where the guns are big, the /e/x/p/l/o/s/i/o/n/s/

One caveat: Howard is downright *embarrassed* by the early artwork, so
