Stealth update--still working on the following splash page.

I still have no idea who this narrator is. {Edit: Link is broken for REASONS.}

But I do recognize the guy in panel 6 and the lead suit featured in panel 7.

Edit: On this page and the last I'm pretty obviously riffing on intellectual property that I don't own. I don't represent to be the creators of panels 3, 4, 5, and 8 (which is Creative Commons per photographer Michael Vadon) and the Netflix properties on the previous page. Perhaps at some point a law firm (or more likely, the hosting site) will demand their alteration/removal; however, the exposure of this work is so limited and its appeal so narrow that you will likely be able to enjoy this anarchic, piratical rant for some time.

Finally, know that I do not advise anyone to do what I am doing, as I'm sure this compromises my "artistic integrity" and that the main body of Winners and Losers is not served by these interjections whatsoever.

Edit, 21 August 2016: Hey, y'all rubes--as you can see here, I predicted the Trump campaign's YUUUUUGE domination of the Republican Party well before anyone else. Remember that when you start giving your money and time to spectacular art made by totally clueless teenagers who have no work ethic. Oh, and my stock portfolio is fucking amazing, thankyouverymuch.

Huh? How did I miss this?
I admit, this was kind of scary and I could not hold my usual "lirvilas stuff" smirk.
Patiently waiting for more so get to it!

MadJak, give me one reason not to delete your entire CF account for showing up early to this party...

Well, I always show up early to parties. True story.
Seriously now. I am sorry if I did something wrong :<
I checked my subscriptions and suddenly, Winners and Losers was there. I just checked what updated :(

As a wizard, however, I am never late, nor early. I arrive precisely when I mean to.

I LOVE the tone you've got going into this. It definitely steps up the tone and stakes of the LIRverse.

After a sidebar discussion regarding his exceptional attention to detail, MadJak has been promoted to Associate Professor.

It is now OK for him to see stuff early.

Serpents of Old is a deeply political work that covers topics such as child imprisonment, torture, and the harsh methods of societal control. For that, HeSerpenty, you have my respect.

However, most days I primarily choose to view Serpents of Old as a smorgasbord of hotties.

If these photos aren't taken by you, you really need to credit them if they're under a creative commons licence. I'm really enjoying the use of photos and in the comic of mine that I'm taking most care over, I'm incorporating photos a lot, so I've done a bunch of thinking about this kinda thing. I think you can search on instagram or flickr or something for stuff which is under creative commons licences, which is well useful.

That Trump gag is almost as good of a joke as he is XD

Thanks! I put him in here well before he became the frontrunner; he was supposed to be a foil to the more insidious but less flashy Scott Walker.

Dude, this writing is fairly awesome. I'm slightly jealous.

(And as of this writing, as you can see, I'm several months behind.)
