Time & danger pay they should be able to live like Queens fore the rest of their lives.

Shower time indeed for both. Shouldn't Julia be a little bloody after that smooch?

The Sykes bonus alone should put them well on their way to retirement.

With regard to the alt text: Miraiko may have a bit of red on her, but I suspect not nearly as much as she left on Sykes. I'm afraid there's no disputing it ... she got red on her lecher. ^_^

Underappreciated art, right here folks.

Thank you.

It seems that both that Miriako and Julia red the situation correctly they have a long and enjoyable life. Hope that's the way everyone but Sykes red the situation, but the he was to busy admiring his "students" wire sculpture and finding how well she red his lesson plans.

Re that last panel: how come Miraiko's blood splatters & drips on the shirt are different in pattern from those on her skin? Did she take her clothes off to smack down Sykes, and then put them back on again?

We've been through this. Limitations of the software mean fixing this would've delayed the page.
Dragonrider 12th Jan 2017, 11:54 PM edit delete reply

Understand the software problems my only question after the kiss and embrace why doesn't Julia have a bit of blood on her?
Tokyo Rose 13th Jan 2017, 12:06 AM edit delete reply

Because Cent would've had to paint up Julia's texture maps too, and that would have taken time we just didn't have if we wanted to get pages out on time.
Dragonrider 13th Jan 2017, 1:15 AM edit delete reply

OK, Thanx Enquiring Minds wanna know.

A thought here do you ever look at the pages before they publish and say *facepalm*Gawd Fucking Dammit this is going to be another page of Gawd awful puns? Or do you do the pages in ways to encourage the puns?
Tokyo Rose 13th Jan 2017, 5:36 PM edit delete reply

I will neither confirm nor deny!
Sheela 14th Jan 2017, 2:59 AM edit delete reply

Tokyo Rose encourages the readers to be punny ... it's all her fault really.

I blame you, Rose.
xpacetrue 12th Jan 2017, 11:21 PM edit delete reply

I don't remember the last time we saw Miraiko with a smile. She should definitely wear a smile more often.

And, yes, this is rather surreal, considering the red and gore. But I'm happy for them.
mjkj 13th Jan 2017, 12:38 AM edit delete reply

Awwww... ...and those hearts...

...but they really should take the kids with them...

@alt text: yeah, maybe even together...

Dragonrider 13th Jan 2017, 1:29 AM edit delete reply

@mjkj those kids have seen enough trauma during their lives. They don't need to be subjected to these two cats in heat on the trip to Shinedo. They could end up scared for life, having seen Miraiko turn into the Metal Nano Wired Human Ninja Blender System, She Chops, Slices, Dices and Purees all in one easy action then she becomes one super horny Japanese sex machine after one equally charged Blonde Doctor those kids would have NO chance of normal relationships.

Come to think about how does Rose handle the audio and video feeds on something like this. And don't tell me she's above it she may be a a frozen corpsecicle but she is still human.
Greenwood Goat 13th Jan 2017, 2:25 AM edit delete reply
How does Tokyo Rose handle the audio and video feeds from something like this? I'm thinking: straight into permanent storage, replay in HD when she's feeling unhappy at the state of the world. She might even incorporate it into a "These are things that might happen if you make trouble in my city" show-reel. >:=)>
Centcomm 13th Jan 2017, 1:32 PM edit delete reply

Ill let her answer that one.
Tokyo Rose 13th Jan 2017, 5:42 PM edit delete reply

The gory stuff gets saved. Not just for entertainment value; it gets used for training and evaluation as well.

More... personal material is handled more discreetly. When we're talking about the kind of mission Miraiko's been on, casual pillow talk or simple actions can translate into important intel. That stuff gets reviewed by Yasakani, who's the expert on social interaction, who sorts out what's useful and provides a report on it.
Sheela 14th Jan 2017, 3:07 AM edit delete reply

Unless it's porn, then it gets saved directly to Tokyo Rose's private server. >_<
Dragonrider 14th Jan 2017, 6:57 AM edit delete reply

Sheela the actions those two on the trip to Shinedo, the very,very long way will qualify as some of the highest class porn ever.
Gilrandir 14th Jan 2017, 10:32 AM edit delete reply
You don't think their obviously deeply held care and affection for each other is purely platonic? (As opposed to Aurelia's relationships, which are purely Plutonic. ^_^)
Dragonrider 14th Jan 2017, 12:10 PM edit delete reply

Tectonic possibly but not platonic.
HiFranc 13th Jan 2017, 12:48 AM edit delete reply

I can't shake the feeling that Rose is going to make her break some promises.
Hana 13th Jan 2017, 3:18 AM edit delete reply
Those hearts LOL.
But those last 2 panels are too happy.

Something is gonna ruin their happily ever after.

Hm maybe Mirako dies and has to be "remade" causing a setback in the relationship with the whole "Honey, I'm an android". So they'll get their furture, its just more bumpy than before?
Stormwind13 13th Jan 2017, 3:16 PM edit delete reply

Granted CentComm (the artist) seems to révèle in tormenting her characters, but I think these two might get to enjoy life for a LITTLE while. Until the next crisis calls on Miraiko, dragging her out of her lover's arms.
DLKmusic (at work) 14th Jan 2017, 7:54 PM edit delete reply
Did you say happily ever after?

Great, now I can't get that stupid YouTube video out of my head... thanks
Eldoran 13th Jan 2017, 6:19 AM edit delete reply
Concerning the alternate text - does that mean this will be the last time Miraiko/Julia will be seen in DC?
Stormwind13 13th Jan 2017, 3:11 PM edit delete reply

Last time, who can say for sure Eldoran? I expect that their piece of the current arc is done though.
chk 13th Jan 2017, 8:32 AM edit delete reply

A happy ending in the middle of a living hell. I hope they make it out of there OK.

(and, by all means, a shower)
Stormwind13 13th Jan 2017, 3:09 PM edit delete reply

A shower that we get to see, chk? :-D
Gilrandir 13th Jan 2017, 3:13 PM edit delete reply
Are you thinking vote incentive? ^_^ Or possibly Patreon content to encourage sign-ups?

Is Miraiko going to keep Julia as a Kept woman?
Stormwind13 13th Jan 2017, 3:08 PM edit delete reply

I'm pretty sure that Miraiko will be KEEPING Julia, Mark. As far as supporting her though, I think when Julia wants to get a job Miraiko will support her decision.
Tokyo Rose 13th Jan 2017, 5:47 PM edit delete reply

Miraiko's just saying that neither of them will need to find work immediately and can live on her mission pay. However, she knows Julia very well, and Julia finds immense personal fulfillment and satisfaction in her work as a doctor. Miraiko wouldn't deprive her of that.
Sheela 14th Jan 2017, 3:14 AM edit delete reply

Once the dust settles, I suspect new connections will be made with the new govern of Nova Roma, and would it not be lovely if Julia could be the Medical Ambassador from Shinedo ? She would have all sorts of advantages when dealing with old man Setorius.

It really would be very beneficial for both Shinedo and Nova roma to have a Ambassador that know how nova Roma works.
Tokyo Rose 14th Jan 2017, 5:28 PM edit delete reply

The offer might be made, but Julia would turn it down flat. She NEVER wants to see Nova Roma again. She might agree to provide consultant services, as long as she never has to set foot in the place.
Sheela 14th Jan 2017, 6:11 PM edit delete reply

Well, there is this thing called "The Internet", which allows for all sorts of excotic things - like, say, video conferences! :)
Centcomm 14th Jan 2017, 7:16 PM edit delete reply

now on the other side of the coin she would not mind seeing Acantha or Maxus occasionally. In some method.
Sheela 15th Jan 2017, 5:57 AM edit delete reply

I'm sure they would be allowed to visit her every now and then.

Doesn't sound like there were a lot of people who were nice to her while in Nova Roma; Maxus, Irene (if they met), Acantha and possibly old man Setorius?
Mark_L_A 15th Jan 2017, 10:00 PM edit delete reply

Julia would probably say they would have to meet in some neutral site, like Sparta.

Even though Julia is from New Troy, she feels betrayed since no one came to rescue her when she got taken, like a specops team did for Lynn.
Mark_L_A 20th Jan 2017, 1:58 AM edit delete reply

Doing another archive dive, this actually gave me a thought. what if Nova Roma asked Julia to BE their ambassador to Shinedo. she would never have to return to Roma, just that Acantha would like her to be her representative to Shinedo. That would give her diplomatic status and a separate income.

Don't you just love professing your love for someone after you brutally murder someone else? XD

Apropos of nothing in particular ... did the Cassian in Comic 524 - "Stop.." ever get matched up with a name, or is she just listed as "Cassian #1" on the credits?
Dragonrider 14th Jan 2017, 3:03 AM edit delete reply

Looks like Malati in one of her "Gray" moods.
Centcomm 14th Jan 2017, 3:45 AM edit delete reply

she was one of the prototype Cassians i did. They went though a lot of stages.
megados 14th Jan 2017, 6:57 AM edit delete reply

The thought about Cassians having gone through changes, makes it occur to me, that they have been instrumental in a lot of changes. Sadly some have been lost, but let's hope that those remaining get to enjoy a new freedom in a future of hope.
Rashala 14th Jan 2017, 12:49 AM edit delete reply


Hey if they are coming to you neck of the woods are you gonna loan them that thing everyone's favorite little candy loving fox not found that your one employee sent you
Dragonrider 14th Jan 2017, 3:06 AM edit delete reply

Doubt is Rash, either that employee is wearing it as a permanent attachment or it went in a recycle bin years ago. Or was that it on the table in Sykes "play room"'
