Well so far so good. They didn't shoot Mira out of the sky, yet. :-)
Centcomm 8th Dec 2013, 8:51 PM edit delete reply

Nope - not yet :D

Hrmm ... this makes me wonder, how is the Ghetto Elf gonna get past those check points and deliver his pressies ?

Centcomm 8th Dec 2013, 10:33 PM edit delete reply

There never was a typo.

We have always been at war with Oceania.

Stormwind13 9th Dec 2013, 6:23 PM edit delete reply

Fairport, do you need to check your eyes there? Seeing things are you? :-D

Thank you for the catch there. So they can get it straightened out. :-)

Its a very good thing they got clearance, l expect a firey death awaits anyone dumb enough to try and run that post!

I was thinking of going to darkcon this year, but l kinda over-spent on Christmas, and lm dreading my credit card bill next month =(
Rashala 8th Dec 2013, 11:44 PM edit delete reply

You know IIF Could not be atypo it could be referring to something else they use Similar to the Iff you think of

Ahhhh, Mira is a fan...


#> commence fan-girl attack: *glomp*

Those three (five) are great but hard to make out in all that darkness ... (or are they making out...?)

I find it kind of interesting that security post like this haven't been notified before this, like when the pass-card was being created. I mean you figure there must of been at least ten of these request in the last 5 mins.
Dragonrider 9th Dec 2013, 8:27 AM edit delete reply

Wonder why that "little" thing slipped by Centy, hope Officer Allie doesn't find herself assigned to traffic duty in podunk nowhere or worse because she kept Vinnie from blasting away and asking questions later.
Stormwind13 9th Dec 2013, 6:32 PM edit delete reply

Yeah, it seems a tiny little bit odd. On the other hand, CentComm probably knew about it. How communicative she is with the NTPD is another matter. Apparently not TOO is the answer to that, considering the viewed lag.

Another question is who is on the other end of the radio? The boxes remind me of the human dispatcher that Ray interacted with in Mockingbird (who was also called Sector, hmmm...) Wonder if it is the same individual or a different one on a different shift. :-)
Plumbata 9th Dec 2013, 8:47 AM edit delete reply
You know, I think I work with vinnie.
Marcus Ramesy 9th Dec 2013, 11:24 AM edit delete reply

vinnie has a wonderful personality... follows orders, makes snap decisions and always errors on the side of caution.... I find him to be one of the better personalities to work with

The follows orders defense went out at Nuremberg, I still think he needs a bit f reprogramming before he blows the Krispy Kreme Donut guy away when he drops off for the human and androids that eat guard faction.
Rashala 9th Dec 2013, 2:34 PM edit delete reply

I see marcus and I are both having the same NAture related Net connection problem Ala double posting

Centcomm 9th Dec 2013, 3:10 PM edit delete reply

hehe yeah they kinda like the delivery guys..
Sheela 9th Dec 2013, 10:41 PM edit delete reply

They do ?

Wait, wait .. Vinnie can eat donuts ?
Aura_Spark 9th Dec 2013, 1:13 PM edit delete reply

There will be more I promise!
Stormwind13 9th Dec 2013, 6:19 PM edit delete reply

Welcome aboard Aura. Don't mind the asylum here, we are mostly harmless. :-) [Watch out for Sheela though, she nibbles toes :-D]

*grins evilly with hook 'n' bait*

KarToon12 9th Dec 2013, 1:16 PM edit delete reply

For some reason, panel four is my favorite. Just the way the lighting and angle is on the characters, and her expression. :)
Centcomm 9th Dec 2013, 3:09 PM edit delete reply

thank you - these were rather tricky with the expansive background set as well - im really pleased with this whole segment :D
Dragonrider 9th Dec 2013, 2:44 PM edit delete reply

I do hope she asks for an autographed picture of her with Vinnie. Yano I bet I know the best Xmas present for Mira, hee=hee.
Centcomm 9th Dec 2013, 3:08 PM edit delete reply

hehe she would not mind taking Vinnie home :D not at ALL :D
Dragonrider 9th Dec 2013, 4:25 PM edit delete reply

You're no fun!!! No sense of adventure Mira would so LOVE that.

Autograph? "This unit doesn't see the point."

Good afternoon, I just found this excellent comic today thanks to a friend. It's pretty safe to say I have not accomplished a thing today! I'm starting on Luna Star next and Saving Staff and Sword for last, I've subscribed to all three. Are there any others I should be subscribing to as well? John.
Centcomm 9th Dec 2013, 3:08 PM edit delete reply

Welcome to the fold - keys everyone to start the "one of us chanting" Actually Staff and Sword is on hold at the moment. However I do work on the comic "the Hub" from time to time - that one has a lot of artists that add to it :D And Charcter battles between rounds .. ive done a few of those too .. :D
Stormwind13 9th Dec 2013, 6:12 PM edit delete reply

Welcome John.

Most of the commenters are harmless, well Sheela bites... Alright, NIBBLES... on toes mostly. :-D

Now the creative team for the comic is EVIL... CentComm and Rose make us WAIT for more comics... EVIL, EVIL, EVIL. And they laugh at us even... :-D

Enjoy your stay, you can vote in TWC (at the bottom of each comic). As a subscriber, you can rate this comic too, if you haven't already. :-) Both of those might increase the visibility of the comic and get them even more readers... Until they take over the world, Pink... Urm, I mean, until we get them into the top 10 permanently. :-D
Sheela 9th Dec 2013, 10:39 PM edit delete reply

Oh c'mon ... why do you warn all of them about that ?
Now they're just gonna wear safety shoes and they're so hard for the teeth to gnaw on. :(
Stormwind13 10th Dec 2013, 3:38 PM edit delete reply

Eventually it will get warm again and then they will wear sandals. THEN you can get them. I want them nice and hooked on the comic before you scare them off. :-D
JacobJSebastian 9th Dec 2013, 4:44 PM edit delete reply

*sigh* What CentComm HASN'T made clear is that she is going to have a TABLE at DarkCon, in the art room. it's one month away, the weekend of Jan 9th. *announcer voice* For more information, go to
Rashala 9th Dec 2013, 7:38 PM edit delete reply

So will she have swag? Free CEci's MAybe free Tedee's too? or Ada's I mean IF She did I'd come take all three, start my own Private rescue team....WIth the two and have a happy life with CEci
Centcomm 10th Dec 2013, 8:42 AM edit delete reply

Rashala 10th Dec 2013, 4:36 PM edit delete reply

MAke you a deal centy If I manage to win a Big lottery Jackpot. I will donate you a few million (cause cash it tight here too) But there will be oen caveat. I get a CEci!!!

Damn! One time I don't go to Phoenix to see family and your at a meet and greet. Crapola!
highlander55 9th Dec 2013, 5:02 PM edit delete reply

I think the key to this is the last frame where "Another 3C clearance? is stated. Whom else is there!??? My thoughts wander but just goes "Doh!"
Dragonrider 9th Dec 2013, 5:23 PM edit delete reply

Highlander, people to keep Mira from seeing Cali. As I said my spidey senses are tingling.
Stormwind13 9th Dec 2013, 7:37 PM edit delete reply

Funny Dragonrider... you don't look like a spider at all. :-D
highlander55 9th Dec 2013, 8:08 PM edit delete reply

OH! What wicked web we weave! CentCom is really going to be in the doo doo soon.
velvetsanity 9th Dec 2013, 9:02 PM edit delete reply

Why would a spider have 3C clearance? O_o
Stormwind13 9th Dec 2013, 9:16 PM edit delete reply

The better to weave a web to trap Mira in? :-)
Sheela 9th Dec 2013, 10:38 PM edit delete reply

There's no need for a web to trap Mira, just park Vinnie where you want to catch her and then you nab her while she's drooling on his stabilizers. :D
cattservant 10th Dec 2013, 3:08 PM edit delete reply

How about Setting up a fake meeting to divert Mira?
For all they know Mira is just a dumb Waster.
Sheela 10th Dec 2013, 5:54 PM edit delete reply

I think that Mira has abused them of that notion already. :D
Dragonrider 10th Dec 2013, 3:47 PM edit delete reply

Panel 2: The camera droid goes, "Hehehe."

Does this mean it actually has a sense of humor? As in, emotions and an appreciation for comedic situations?

I'll admit, it's reaction here is cute.

This is the same camera droid that interrupted the officer in her recitation as Juliet with the added comment "...or droid."

Let's see...New Troy is in what used to be the US while Nova Roma, New Sparta, Atha, and most other places mentioned seem to be in what was once the "fifty four - forty" designation for the mech is a reference to "fifty four - forty or fight ?"..bring it, we kicked your ass the last time and looking at the number of cities functioning and where they are, it happened again ;)
