We've been following the exploits of the Braseby family for some time now. Those of you wondering what's been happening to Major Hamm this whole time.... well, now you see. He was sent through that wormhole to investigate a series of newfound planets that may be potential colonisation destinations for the human race.
The relativistic effects of travelling close to a black hole have resulted in him experiencing time dilation to such an extent that in just a few minutes, he's experienced the equivalent of several years of Webcomic Time.
Which means either we won't see him again for approximately a century of publication updates... or maybe he'll appear in the next strip.
