[Comic for Friday, May 5, 2006]


[[Nick and 'Alternate Universe' Ki are seated in his makeshift lab, having a conversation.]]
Nick: I don't think anyone deserves death. I think punishments should fit the crime, but even a mass murderer should have a chance to seek redemption.

[[Close up of Nick's eyes]]
Nick: As for your emperor, I'm sure some of his prisoners are foul unpardonable souls, but I would not wish his form of 'justice' on anyone. He kills to terrorize others beside the victim, making that death senseless.

[[Close up of 'Alternate Universe' Ki's eyes]]
Nick: Where I come from, that's the sign of a madman. My world's had more than its own share of those, and it's far from comforting to see in him what I were capable of if I had made his choices.

[[Nick has a stern look as 'Alternate Universe' Ki looks away with no emotion]]
Nick: As to why... because I believe that everyone needs a chance to prove themselves. If my sacrifice, be it my time, resources, or my life spares one life to make its mark, than my life has been worthwhile.
