Hey y'all lurkers: I'll announce this again on Wednesday's page, but if you vote for me in Top Web Comics I'll give you a sneak peak at what's been happening with Liberty International since Eric's hijinks in the Straits of Malacca.

Mr. Alexander is decidedly playing hardball here. Dang man. Effin' ruthless.

You are seriously doing some of us shame with these pages. I REALLY need to up my game... (or wait until you are a free agent and hire you...)

EDIT: FIRST!!!!!

All that shit-talking in "30 Days" finally comes home to roost, no?

However 1) Alexander gets more ruthless before this is over; and 2) I have a hair-raising scene which I hope to get to before this series is over in which this incident will seem like harmless horseplay... [redacted, can't set up expectations I might not be able to meet]

Lirv, you are a machine. I envy your prolific production of pages. and good ones at that. (if you never had to edit I would assume you were an artificial intelligence.)

Lirv's bag-o-trix for today's page:

-Rip off other people's characters
-COPY-pasta
-Theft from Google Images
-Sleazy backgrounds/"high contrast skylined profiles"
-Manga Studio 5EX

I will do whatever is legal it takes to keep you entertained!

CALLED IT! Re: Sonja's phone call. Now that it looks like an all-out corporate war between these two, we shall soon see if the "young upstarts" can take out the "old establishment"...

EDIT: This actually makes Aegis look like petulant little children. "She took my toys and that's why I hit her". I mean really, the fact that they have to resort to childish tactics such as this, then they have already lost.

Yeah... things get a whole lot more childishly violent before we leave Autumn Bay.

I would like to interject on behalf of Aegis Securitech. This is the language MSV understands. Sonja/"Katya" has hidden behind the walls of her fortress long enough, with her men running around extorting, beating, and cold MURDERING people...

And to be honest, they were CAUGHT spying on Aegis. Did they expect a slap on the wrist?

Concur!

However, Chuck and Hawke weren't exactly told to maintain a low profile in AB... otherwise Chuck wouldn't have spent the night before visiting "dance studios".

His most likely haunt: Inferno, in the Angelia neighborhood (red-light district).

It's been my experience that rich and 'powerful' people tend to be particularly vindictive towards folks who resist their ambitions and control. Aside from that generality, what do you specifically expect from a person who has probably seen his accountants and secretaries put together a dollar figure--at least in the seven figures, probably much more--of what MSV has cost him?

"Vindictive".

Yes--I like that word.

There will be more illustrations of that concept shortly.

Give me cues, I will try to respond to them if I catch them in time.
I can't speak for all the other anonymous cowards out there, but I comment recreationally to learn, explain, joke, play anarchist, and inspire others... particularly towards those first four things. The world needs more anarchists with functioning minds and senses of humour, damnit....

Is that map an accurate depiction of the territory of each of those entities?

No, it's a dramatic tool, as in the security industry geographic area does not directly correspond with client base and/or revenue. Alexander has suggested that the west coast is where he's taking the most losses, however.

TLDR: it looks cool, that's why.

I do not think there is any way to bring down Cannon in a normal fight (no guns).
I mean, look at that guy.

We'll see what happens to Cannon... there's multiple ways to stop a tank.

True! Just thinking about straight up fist fight like this!
Though Chuck's um, "remark" means he is still holding up for now :D

Apparently the cost for not answering his calls is pretty high. I usually just stomp on people's toes.

Hello, I was out and about and decided to wander in here. Couldn't help but notice the Russian in the 1st panel. I remember enough to think that it's pronounced Eshtyeh Dehrmo ee oomyeryet (horrific English phonetic transcribing, I know) but I can't seem to remember enough vocabulary to translate it directly.

Well, it was my pleasure. I was intrigued by the west coast setting. There was a kind of glam-noir mood that I sensed. That could just be me though.

And a PM? For me?? /gasp I'm touched! I *do* hope it's Winston Churchill, I've always wanted to meet him.
