Choices have consequences... and Eric has led a bad life indeed.

I'm not talking about the blowing up ships and killing people part either.

Yeah, no pep talk ever had the same effect as a bag full of plasma and a surgical trauma team.

You'd better not be pulling a George R.R. Martin on us here, Lir!

"I've never even held her"… damn, you got me with that one. :-(

Gee, that would be pretty shitty of me to emulate a wildly successful franchise.

I'm glad that you enjoyed Eric.

[VEILED THREAT MODE]

For all of our sakes, I hope that med-kit is a bit of foreshadowing. It would be... unfortunate... should such a fan favorite be dispatched so readily this early in the game.

[/VEILED THREAT MODE]]

I said it before and I'll say it again. Damn... Well done.

I don't do this shit because of some unresolved power fantasies that I felt one time when I read an X-men comic when I was fourteen... no, I do this shit to purge the terrifying nightmares that I do my best to ignore every day in my middle age.

And fuck Eric, he was the most worthless of the bunch.

Did they hit his left subclavian artery? That would suck...
Considering how quickly the blood is gushing out (shirt reddening) and taking out the phone only takes a few seconds between the panels.
Not that I am an expert but that is serious. Looking grim.

"I do not want to die!"
...you bastard...

I was more talking about Eric blowing up power plants and conducting global terrorism and now crying about someone wanting him dead.
Yeah, the feelings during this particular moment but you know.
Even playing the kid card. Who knows how many wanted to do the same thing.

MadJak, who's your favorite character in this work? The supporting cast members? Or one of the "mains"?

Because, you know, I try to kill off feature your favorites.

You misunderstand.
You are doing everything perfectly.
Eh, I honestly do not like the favorite character question that much because I usually like everyone the author comes up with as I have told you multiple times. And my weird liking of random side characters. That is a chronic problem.
And by "like" I mean also "fictional dislike." In other words: It is about liking a character that does morally bad stuff or something despicable in terms of our real world in which we would hate such character.

That is Eric. Acting on instinct and acting like his brain short circuited in the past leaving him with a deranged nonsensical and random mind.
Sometimes I wonder if he himself understands the actions.

So yeah, he is doing things and saying these lines the way I would love to slap him or lock him up for.
And that is why I like him. He provides the right "fictional dislike" --> good chaotic/evil character.

Better?

Wait....the counter says I'm at the end! What's up with that!?!?! I've been able to have this comic open in a browser looking at a page while doing other things, my version of binge reading, for over a week now, and there's no more? I have to wait for updates now?

This...not...good.

Due to demand and a longstanding promise to Prof, I will do my best to upload the missing strips for Volume 1 in the near future.

Their content may illuminate other approaching developments.
