Huh, that was surprisingly restrained.

Of course Tona can't go "high and right" at Mar A Lago. As noted elsewhere, reality is my co-author and consequences have to happen here in order for me to remove pieces from this fictional board.

Mr. Skull from Kaza's Mate, Gwena!

Mr. Timmy from Cryptida!

Wow, what a great page. The burden of what Tona is doing is really starting to stack up. There's a lot of emotion through her stance alone and the colour usage is on point. She's walking down the proverbial road to hell now and I hope she has at least planned for a way out.

I really hope that she doesn't have to advance that agenda too much longer. This seems to be breaking her a little.

I don't think bashing Roger Ailes's head into a table is keeping Tona awake at night... getting her ass grabbed by her latest boss and having multiple reasons preventing her from doing anything about it is what's "breaking her a little".

Spotted my character's cameo! :-)
(And also, there is that skull guy from your crossover with Kaza's Mate Gwenna, right?)

Author comments updated! But yeah, I think I probably owe a little more back story on why Tona's whacking Mr. Timmy... though I'm sure you could speculate why.

I have now tweaked some dialogue for my comic for 15th September a bit, to include a bit of speculation... As for who is talking there about this incident... ;-D

Awww gosh... This page hurts...

My wrist was killing me afterwards, so yes, yes it does hurt. (Thanks for the comment!)

She's... feeling conflicted? B-but... planes with showers!

ok, i'll let that joke die now

Gonna need more than a shower to wash all this away.

lotta dying on this page, but that joke ain't one of them

Surely Trump's history prepared Tona for the fact she would need to endure sexual harassment and assault from him while working for him. No, the real question in all of this is whether or not Trump is going to behave like a proper businessman: Grab her ass, assure her that she's not on the chopping block, and then she wakes up one morning less than a week later finding out from the news that she's fired.

Better people than Trump pull bullshit like that. The perfect time to do that kind of thing is when the victim has a reason not to take their complaints seriously coming down the line. Firing people to react to problems associated with them is a signature move of, ahem, the Trump administration.

Knowing something shitty is a possibility and having it actually happen aren't the same thing.

And yeah, Tona can read the writing on the wall.

On the positive side, Trump has shown that he's ready and willing to issue pardons for anyone who commits crimes in the process of pushing his agenda!

Yeah, anyone surprised by the shamelessness of Trump doesn't know Trump, or sociopaths in general either. "It's not whether I do it that matters, it's whether someone can and will make the charge stick."

It's always darkest just before all the incendiaries go off...

Yup, that's essentially what happens next chapter.

This back-and-forth has been interesting and kind of gets your blood pumped-up for something?!

This is a gorgeous page. The dim understated purple sets her yellow locks ablaze. Really well done -- it's like a postmodern inversion of that old Rockwell piece about ethnic togetherness.

Note from Christmas Eve, 2020:

This page spawned an entire spinoff comic, the partnership that led to its sequel, and the production methods first tested on it (i.e. short pages pushed in rapid succession) have powered me since then. That's not to say the countless cameos, fan arts, and comments/PM with other creators and readers since then.

Aside from my first, this is the most consequential page I've done in webcomics.
