[Comic for Wednesday, December 10, 2014]


[[Trish, Patty, and Dexter are with Colonel Barker in a chamber on a Physaric "ship", discussing with him his reference to "Scylla and Charybdis". Colonel Barker is continuing his background tale.]]
Colonel: [narrating off-panel, while we see a picture of him looking at a file marked "Extraterrestrial Incidents, 1947-1996] With deeper access to more and more state secrets, I began to learn of darker enigmas, such as our nations checkered history dealing with extra-terrestrials..."

Colonel: [narrating off-panel, while we see a heavily-censored file page and a couple of photographs of Greys and a flying saucer] For example, a species very similar to the stereotypical "Grey Aliens" of UFO myth have indeed been visiting our planet for decades, although most evidence of their presence is circumstantial at best."

Colonel: [narrating off-panel, while we see an airbase] For a time, after leaving the U.G.A., I was assigned to a task force investigating various alien threats, working primarily out of Area 54...
Patty: [interrupting off-panel] Don't you mean "Area 51"?

Colonel: [drawn out of his narrative] No, Ms. Johnson. We maintain a succession of secret installations so when one becomes the focus of public scrutiny and conspiracy theories, we can move sensitive projects somewhere ... safer.
