Freefall is a popular webcomic written and drawn by Mark Stanley and hosted at Purrsia. It is a humorous science fiction story detailing the misadventures of the starship Savage Chicken and its crew: Sam Starfall, a lovable alien con artist; Helix, a childlike robot; and Florence Ambrose, a genetically engineered "Bowman's Wolf" (i. e. an anthropomorphic canine).

Stanley began writing and drawing the strip on March 30, 1998 as a feature for the occasional furry zine, Yarf!, with the intent of telling the actual story behind the characters. The comic is updated three times a week, and it celebrated its thousandth strip in August 2004. It is in black and white, but the first 388 strips are also available in fan-colored versions. Some characters from Freefall also appear at the Cross Time Cafe.
