Friendly reminder: I get to do what I do thanks to the support of my readers. If you enjoy my work, it would be appreciated if you’d consider white-listing my website on your ad-blocker. Ads are annoying, but they really do put food on my table.
 
Alternatively, chipping in directly via Patreon  helps as well, circumvents ads, AND you get some extra stuff to boot!

Hey Thad… Why do you still have an ad for the original model PS4 at the launch price of $399 hanging right next to your door? ?

Yeah, “Poison Trafficker” sounds like a cliched low rank villain to me. Probably not Ethan.

Agreed. Someone’s definitely marking their territory. Plus, as Ethan himself pointed out, if he did it the graffiti would be much less threatening and much more childish. Don’t know about quality – we don’t know how good of an artist this Ethan is.

Tim, I think you have a demon roach infestation in your server room again.
It least it wasn’t the Deep Crows this time.

Do you get paid by the ad’s just showing up or do I need to click them?

So what kind of graffiti-ist doesn’t center their work in the window or at least make sure all their work lands in the original window? I mean it looks like someone with great art skills put a sticker on a piece of paper like a 3 yr old would? I’m guessing it is a chaos villain intentionally screwing with my OCD.

I keep thinking of spray painting/tagging in CS or whatever shooter it is.

The kind who wants to make your life hell by crossing paint over the rubber and metal parts, making it insanely difficult to clean up fully compared to just containing it on a clean window which could be cleared off in an instant, by comparison.

Well, it looks like a perfectly flat section, so it wasn’t too hard to do.
I’d guess the paint acts as a marker (hence tagged) so its put like that so even if a section is cleared off, another is still painted.

Just say that Ethan cannot have done that due the words being written correctly. Bet Thad would believe that immediately.

umm…not to nitpick but that is a marker…not a pen.

Loving the comics though!

That’s some pretty good artwork on that. Just erase the “stay away” and say it’s an advertising for a new game in beta.

The artwork itself will draw people to the store. kind of a total win for them, actually.

It looks like an ad for a badass new game. Is this supposed to scare children away?

Isn’t the troll slightly unconscious?
Probably a new person or Emily/Emily’s friend in disguise.

I had your site white listed for years, I’ll do so again when you remove autoplaying videos from the page.

ads suck

Agreed. And despite that they’re supposed to play muted, they don’t. They play the first second or two with sound on and then mute themselves. If it was muted for the entire duration, I’d be fine with it. But they don’t, so adblock it is.

I’ve also been chipping in via Patreon for a while now. I wish that radioactive bear would hurry up.

Have to admit, I feel the same. I won’t even read the comic on my phone because the ads actually prevent me from navigating and reading…

This might be a good moment to complain about the “We value your privacy” pop-over which regularly appears on your site. It sits on the bottom part of the browser window, but darkens and disables the rest of the page. I know since the European GDPR law was introduced, websites must ask visitors for consent to track them. But this is supposed to be a one time thing. You click “I agree” (optionally after changing the defaults), and then you won’t be bothered with it again on that website. On this site however, the pop-over reappears regularly (but not each… Read more »

To all the people guessing plot point here, would it seem reasonable that this is Zeke/Zeke’s master doing this? After all, the first issue had A&D fighting the group at a convention where the villain stated they were “freeing” the people from their phones and technology, how we were enslaved (I think) by technology. Would it not stand to reason that the villain would view Mega Game as a poison trafficker?

Brian Higgins

That does make some sense, but I think if it were Zeke and his master they would’ve just broken into the store and smashed all the consoles and game disks themselves.

I think Poison Trafficker is the villain’s name. We’ve had A&D fight bots, trolls and hackers, why not people filling the internet with hatred? (The difference between that and trolls is motive I think)
