I finally have a new comic up. I just got laid off in real life so I’ll have more time to do comics while I search for another occupation. Likely this occupation will not be in comics, but that’s why I have Wyrecats, Ruby Nation, and the larger “Kapitverse” established....as a place to let my creativity flourish unfettered by anything else.

As frivolous as it may seem to want to do these comic strips in a time when white supremacists hold the highest offices, class inequality is at a level not seen since the Gilded Age with more and more barriers to the opportunities the American dream espouses, and the planet falling apart as its systems break down thanks to rich companies with no vision beyond their quarterly reports, well....at least I can make something of my own, in personal defiance of this horror.

Ah damn man. I'm sorry about the job.

They say unemployment is low, but from where I stand it's more like "underemployment". Hope you can quickly get back into an occupation that's a few steps up from wage slavery.

Great panel 9... I always love those "over the shoulder fist-to-the-face" moves.

Thank you. I hope I can find something with livable wages and a decent work-life balance, fingers crossed hard

Lovely action on this page man!!
I'm sorry man. I understand. Things are terrible in my country too. You have to have rich parents or have/know those who have political connections for you to get a decent job around here. Normal folks have to do multiple jobs to keep up. Art's all that's keeping me sane.

Thank you. Here’s hoping things get better around the world as we struggle through this stage of capitalism

I like Mela more and more, and hope to see more of what's going on in her head in the future.

Sorry about the lay off, but I fully support what you're doing with regards to art being your outlet for discourse. Please keep it up! Good luck with the job hunt!

Thank you. Mela will definitely have a greater role to play.

Sorry about your job. It sucks being out of work. But never feel bad about taking the time to create something, Neil. You can't spend every second fighting all the shit going on in the world. You can only spend so much time in the trenches before you have to rotate out to decompress. I'd say what you do is a good way to keep sane in an insane world.

The world is in a sorry state; No doubt about that. And sometimes the best escape is to create our own mythologies instead of consuming the artificial corporate propaganda that is forced upon us.

1.) The Alpha Pinscher and his squad open fire on Lamar, pouring energy blasts onto him from their heavy weapons.

ALPHA: Focus Fire!!!!

2.) Lamar shields himself and Rico from the blasts by throwing up a magnetic force field, a bubble that manages to absorb all the firepower thrown at him.

LAMAR: The new armor’s shields are holding...

3.) Overhead view of the battlefield outside the factor from Tadeo’s airborne perspective. Lamar’s energy shield starts to buckle under the pressure.

LAMAR: ....but not for much longer. Tadeo, air support?

4.) Lightning blasts hit several of the Pinschers, shutting down their armor and leaving them immobile. The Alpha Pinscher remains undeterred.

ALPHA: ?!!

TADEO: Got your back, Lamar!

5.) Tadeo hovers in the clouds above the battlefield, keeping his sniper rifle trained on the Pinschers.

TADEO: These guys have a huge casualty allowance...

TADEO: ...We’d better finish this quickly.

6.) Lamar looks over his shoulder at Mela, who lands next to Rico. Rico looks up at her from his prone position, amazed by the robotic life form in front of him.

LAMAR: Thanks, Tadeo. Mela, can you get Rico out of this nightmare?

MELA: Sure thing!

RICO:...a drone armor?

7.) Mela leans down towards Rico and changes her face to its human mode, smiling easily at the boy.

MELA: Close, but not quite...Good eye for details though!

8.) Mela holds Rico against her chest and flies away on her built-in rockets ack. A Pinscher with a knife flies after them.

MELA: Let’s discuss what I am in a safer place...

9.) Mela backhands the Pinscher, shattering his helmet.

MELA: Wasn’t talking to you!
