Next week is normal schedule, however the following two weeks will be a single update each due to the production team on travel.

edit: this is why I need to be careful with what I put in this comic

A truly versatile, low-budget drink that's good on riot cops, tanks, and fixed installations.

The unexpected is certainly what's on call for today.

Sometimes I think this entire series of comics is an interminable lead in to a liquor commercial.

Don't you think that "Olde Claymore" might be a little more... explosive...

That suggests a good visual gag...

Cue Arthur Brown's Fire?

I'll say this for blind adherence to doctrine: It's often the only way to achieve common action towards a shared goal. I wish that the doctrine of enforcing laws against fraud and theft were more blindly adhered to. (Cough, cough, still nowhere near enough arrests, convictions and asset seizures from the 200x-2009 subprime mortgage scam, securitization scam, and bailout mugging that crashed the world economy.)

More like John Brown's Body.

Grim, very grim. It's perhaps fractally grim even if one contextualizes it in the legacy of US slavery and its aftermath. You have a real gift for pointing at the ugliness of American hypocrisy.

"Hello, this is Martin's Printing Emporium... What do you need printin'?"

"We need 400 of these labels here. On sticky back."

"Molotov huh... Are these for you know... actual molotov's?"

"YES! These will be used by the free peoples of this city to ensure our victory against the incoming vile facist threat that looms over us all with its sickly presence. There will be nowhere for the Nazi scum to hide, nowhere to run from the wrath of a liberated citizenry! We will RISE UP, and put down this oppressive force of evil, once and for all!"

--

"... That'll be 25 cents a label."

TBH they'd probably pass it off as an obscure band or DJ.

Man I don't know how you party in Illinois but in Wisconsin (and everywhere else for that matter) we like to go easy on the gasoline.

" But you know he's just as bad as the fascists "

I guess we'll see?

We will see... there's a reason that both sides are toting around forcibly embedded journalists.

"this is why I need to be careful with what I put in this comic"
I think no matter what you avoid here, the main character has a "SS" in her hair. It's enough to flame war for some people. If nobody said anything until now, I don't think someone will do.
(Doing political comics are hard because of it. You always can be misunderstood.).

There are some low wattage folks (not posting here in the comments section) who have expressed confusion as to whether this comic is pro or anti-Trump.

smh

... I don't care if I'm misunderstood by the rabble.

I think this comic goes beyond the politics and Trump thing. It's more like believe in something bigger, at least, it's my impression.

It’s my attempt to convey his Dark Knight-esque growl.
