[Comic for Friday, December 17, 2010]

Deadlock: Let's let you boys give it a try. Nothing dirty or underhanded, now. Let the best hacker win!

[[Close up of Mouso, typing away. A glowing "worm" with fangs and thorns twists up on the holographic table. Out of our vision, Deadlock speaks.]]

Deadlock: Um... Well, I guess turning his own worm against him could possibly work as well.
