Brewster Rockit: Space Guy! is a satirical retro-futuristic comic strip created by Tim Rickard. It chronicles the misadventures of the dim-witted Brewster Rockit, captain of the space station R.U. Sirius, and his crew. Many of the comic's characters and elements are derived from the Star Trek franchise, American science fiction films of the 1950s, and science fiction comics of the '40s and '50s. It debuted on July 5, 2004 (the same month, Rickard was interviewed for the online magazine SciFiDimensions.com ) and is nationally syndicated by Tribune Media Services.
The weekday strips usually feature extended serial storylines, often running several weeks at a time. The Sunday strips are stand-alone, self-contained gags which are often more elaborately illustrated and action-oriented than the dailies, and are sometimes presented in medias res style. The comic's humor ranges from satire, metahumor, slapstick, dark humor, running gags, word play, and puns.
