Here it comes.


Four days in a row... let's see if we can make it five.

Ah yes, Tona and her unhealthy obsession with car batteries...
(Unhealthy for others, that is...)

@ Lirv: If you keep up this updating tempo, this story will be finished by Christmas after all. ;-)

I like how in the last panel the crop makes Tona's double lightning bolts (already a questionable Nazi and SS associated symbol) look like the Nazi Swastika. That's barely even slightly subtle, if that, but it fits so much of what Tona was doing and her working environment disgustingly well.

If ToyCo ever where to produce and sell an action figure of Tona, they should better omit that detail...

It's good to have Tona back making the world that little bit more murky!

Ah, but this is all set in the halcyon days of 2017! Tona and many others depicted here are deceased.

Tona! Enough with the car batteries! That is NOT how we act in polite company!

Oh, wait... I almost forgot who she's working for. "Polite" left a long time ago.

Still, torture is only effective to terrorize, nothing more. Of course, that's probably her whole point...

I really do like this interaction with Wendell, though. Too bad they're both worm food now...

Perhaps Tona shows so much interest in buying car batteries because this certain person she is working for ordered her to do something to support the American automobile industry...

Interesting fact: Tona prefers WhoopShoop brand car batteries for all her "conversation" needs.

Man, I miss Zanreo... they've been gone for a while.

Her last crossover with Autumn Bay laid the city in debris. What will happen with our family-friendly and cute Cryptida? o__O Please, don't do anything super nasty. I have clean and pure memories of this series, like a beloved and innocent cartoon ;____;
Microraptor 17th Dec 2018, 7:25 PM
Honestly, some of the later pages did indeed make me flinch a bit...

And I very much appreciate that you think of my comic as family friendly and cute! :-)
(I do go to dark places on occasion, but I guess it's more via implications rather than being explicit with it. For example, my WWII chapter had an allusion to the friggin' Holocaust!)

uh yeah maybe I am the corruptor

But in my defense, I hope that when you later read Bettina's impassioned plea to her people it is clear that despite its (many) problems ToyCo's heart is in the right place.
