"Round up the usual suspects."

I've got a pretty clear idea of how the rest of this goes down, so we'll see how long I can keep this latest streak going... I'd put the odds of finishing in time for Christmas at ~50%. I'll be going on travel well before then though, so that's my motivation to get this done.

edit: also, ain't it the truth that a dude whose stock in trade is secrets would demand transparency?!

Toy companies cooperating with businesses that do computer-related stuff is increasingly common nowadays. Adapt or die, et cetera.
Toy companies cooperating with producers of military equipment, on the other hand... That's a bit more unusual.

1) I was about to ask how the man walks with those cojones, but, well...

2) Calling out Bridget Flint and Masahiro Takira is a dangerous game, Gus. You are one high stakes son of a bitch.

3) Methinks I am seeing the beginning salvo of a bid to get out from under a bad deal. I could be wrong.

4) Love the Kirby crackle in panel 3.

5) Faster, pussycat, kill, kill. We the people demand more CE! :D

6) So that's what those emails were about.

7) No Madeleine Waite, eh?

He, you just made me look up who this Madeleine Waite is.
("...jokingly known as 'Mad Science, Inc', for its lack of focus and many seemingly impractical patents" - yep that sounds about right for someone Gus may suspect to have joint projects with ToyCo...)

And while I were at it, I looked up the two others too. I found Bridget Flint - but it seems only Takira's daughter has a 30 Days entry so far, not the man himself?

I have never actually drawn Masahiro Takira. lirv created his image based on my descriptions in correspondence.

I stand by my assertion that Augustus has some amazing chutzpah, but you were right.

Access. It Is quite demanding.

I wonder if that's that's the same line Augustus used when he was in the dating scene?
