There are worlds out there where the sky is burning, where the sea’s asleep and the rivers dream, people made of smoke and cities made of song. Somewhere there’s danger, somewhere there’s injustice, and somewhere else the tea is getting cold. Come on, Ace, we’ve got work to do. — The Doctor

“What did you do today?”

“Oh, not much, what did you do?”

“Not much, what are all these dead bodies laying around?”

“Ah, you know, it’s been a rough day.”

Catching up after certain events is always awkward, I suppose…

↓ Transcript
Roger: Kentaro invaded my implants. Loaded me with self-spawning programs, autocrackers, rootkits for the Genocide Project...
Jacob: You might want to hold onto those.
Roger: Don't think I have a choice.
Jacob: So what happened here?
Roger: New Genocide Men came in on a stealth copter. They were unstable.
Girii: They're all dead. Msaka and her remaining troops are headed to London. They want to end it. And we need to help them.
Jacob: For once, princess...I agree.

  1. SpectralTime says:

    Yeah, reunions are always awkward when they end in digging a bunch of shallow graves.

    Worse when you decide to not even bother with the graves.

  2. Unmaker says:

    Mister “run from problems” must feel absolutely wonderful having his head _full_ of genocide project problems.

  3. CapnCoconuts says:

    So… no hard feelings between Jacob and Girii…?

    Or has he simply not brought it up yet?

  4. Jerden says:

    CapnCoconuts I feel like that’s a discussion for after the current problems are resolved. Hard feelings are a luxury that they can’t afford right now.

  5. Pat Scaramuzza says:

    That’s coming, Capn. 🙂

  6. Drace says:

    Capn, you expect jacob to take the moral high ground and say that mass murder is bad? Or that he should be upset that she did about as he expected, and made a mess of things? I mean, all the guy wants is to retire anyway.

  7. ObservantWolf says:

    Ah, caught up again after losing track for 2-3 years. Great to be back! Glad to see the comic going strong!
