[Comic for Wednesday, July 30, 2014]


[[Nega-Nick (masquerading as "our" Nick) is stalking through the hall of the hotel where he and Trudy are staying during their business trip to Underwood Insurance. He has an angry glare on his face as he mentally converses with his alien symbiote.]]
Alien: It seems Trudy managed to successfully avoid you all day. If your plan was to completely drive her away, I think you've succeeded.
Nega-Nick: [thinking] Shut up.

Alien: Why did I not see the sheer BRILLIANCE of this plan earlier? You abuse her mentally, forcing her to shun you! GENIUS! Still, I fail to see how this connects with your other schemes...
Nega-Nick: [scowling] I said CAN it, slime.

Nega-Nick: [thinking] This is a minor setback. I pushed her too far too soon. I'll hold off for now, let her bring back down her defenses...
Alien: Ah, and THEN you unleash your master stroke.

[[Nega-Nick stops short, eyes wide in surprise, as his phone "blorps" and he finds Trudy waiting for him in the hall. She's standing tall with one hand on her hip and the other holding her suit jacket slung over her shoulder. She's staring at him, eyes narrowed.]]
Alien: If there is one thing I've noticed about your "adversary", it's that she isn't afraid to strike first.
