There is a 50% chance that the upcoming Wednesday and Sunday pages will be delayed. Apologies in advance.

What the actual FUCK makes them think Eric is there?

MSV is FAR overstepping its bounds.

And I actually thought you had done it... you know, killing Tona. You've done a great job of yanking the emotional chains of late. Bravo!

I dunno, if I had to guess it's probably a long-term stakeout fishing for Eric on the basis of his child being there. Your guess is better than mine whether he really is.

Yo, that's a pretty harsh judgment if you think I'd let a bunch of no-name minions whack Tona.

Felicia, on the other hand...


Re: Dem Feels

Who here is crazy enough in love with their family to defend them with a fucking yard implement?

I mean "oh that's Tona, she goes berzerk" kinda dodges the point. A previous edit of this page had her taking out a bunch of MSV dudes... But they're all prior SOF, they're all super ruthless AND they're the ones with the guns. The final build of this page is EXACTLY what would happen to anyone who tried to defend their family in the same situation.

Tona still tries though... well, if I think about this page too hard I get messed up.

HOLY CRAP I thought you killed Tona too!
I almost dropped my peppermint tea!
;-)

Panel 2, though. Nailed it.

I hate to say it, but I kinda ship Tona and Chuck.
F*ck Eric. She's too good for him anyhow.

Riot-control non-lethal rounds, poor quality field-expedient first aid, and a fucking home invasion that had her child screaming for mommy in terror is not the sort of thing I'd expect a romantic relationship to build out of. No, I'm seeing a grudge more than a romance building here.

Well, "Riot-control non-lethal rounds, poor quality field-expedient first aid, and a fucking home invasion" sounds like a romantic Saturday night to me!
And probably to Chuck, as well.

I'm sure Lir will take careful care of the situation with the baby.

And while you're at it Lir, you should consider Chuck switching sides.
That look on his face when he's tending to Tona is just too endearing.

OK, ok, *this* is probably the nadir of Tona's life right here. Or maybe the lowest point was her time in jail. Whatever. Things will turn around now... just not in the romance department. No sir, that's DOA.

I don't know myself, but I do know that life can be considerably more cruel than this. An artist that flinches from that to retreat into painting pictures of fruit and pastoral landscapes isn't much of an artist in my opinion.

Heart jumped for srs :<

But still good. I was REALLY worried about the baby. Do not do it...

And Eric will appear in a heroic blaze of glory!
I would squeal like a high school girl!

Or Chuck changes sides at the last moment.
I would DOUBLE squeal!

Chuck knows who butters his bread; he might be feeling a tad conflicted (more on this later) but he's still an MSV agent.

Police raids are dangerous, and this is a successful test of their outside contractor program that should help prevent police deaths in the line of duty. As usual when a no-knock raid gets conducted, there's some minor property and civilian damage, nothing to worry about.
Don't worry out our heroic, deputized folks from MSV, they're getting out of this one without any criminal charges, although there might be some for Tona because she picked up that axe. She's a dangerous person with a history of violence that got out on a deal with the prosecution. She belongs behind bars for the rest of her natural life after all. MSV probably won't even lose if they get sued because the person they dropped was an ex-con with an axe, so it's fully justified even if Tona kacks it.

She shoulda hucked a hatchet at one of them first; nothing says "I love you!" like a hatchet sticking out of your face.

I actually wasn't worried about Tona - Lir's too good at illustrating blood spatter, especially with shotgun rounds. Tona's gonna HURT for a while, but the most she'd probably suffer is a busted rib (or four). They need her alive to be another lure for Eric...

It occurs to me that the prerequisites to join MSV are not that different from the usual entry path to Nova Roma's Praetorians.

So yeah, it should be no surprise that MSV can be pretty damn cruel.
