We're back! After the vacation, we have a flashback to happier days, amongst the last happy days. In the meantime, the website is still a work in progress, and more material is coming in addition to the comic itself.

AUDIENCE QUESTIONS:

Do you think Kirk Percival, K.A.'s late father, was right to support the Wyrecats at the expense of his defense contracts with the USA? Was it right as a father, a CEO, both, or neither? Could he be a doting father and a philanthrophic technocrat under these circumstances?

This is going to come across as super douche-y, but is his company privately or publicly held? Because if it's a private company, he can damn well do whatever he wants. There will be plenty of Lockheed Martins and Boeings waiting in the wings to sweep in and take that sweet, sweet Defense money.

Of course, if he's got unique technology the government may respond by repossessing his assets "due to national security concerns". With sufficient media coverage however... well, I don't know if public outrage is really a thing anymore here in America.

It's not douchey at all. It's important to ask questions about the work and look at it with a critical eye. Mr. Percival owns the company privately, so as long as he doesn't welsh on his existing contracts (which he didn't), he can do whatever he wants. If he should have, however...

There are a billion ways to get at a billionaire. Such is the rich man's burden.

The event that transpires would suggest that mere compliance was not enough.

Well, weapons are one thing. But the wyrecats are the people piloting the suits. Those are the ones he's concerned about here, and unless those kids are somehow enlisted, he's not breaking contract by disallowing anybody to command them. At least, as far as I understand it.

Whoa! Talk about bad timing!

I believe his intentions are good (doting and philanthropic), along with his daughter's.

Well, if they aren't the only ones with the biggest, baddest weapons, they aren't worth the cost...but being so tempting to own, they were gonna get it from him, like it or not :/

Aaaand Discus is acting up again. I'm beginning to think that the only reason it's my favorite commenting system is that I'm not the one who has to make it work right. You have my sympathies.

(Back to the comic) In retrospect, they probably should have made an armored power suit for Kirk, too.....

Thank you. Getting it working has been a tremendous pain.
