[Comic for Friday, September 12, 2014]


[[In Nega-Nick's hotel room he and Trudy have been captured and cuffed by alien-controlled SWAT officers. Nega-Nick (masquerading as "our" Nick) has just been informed by his alien sybmiote that it summoned the officers while Nega-Nick's attention was - ahem - elsewhere...]]
Nega-Nick: [thinking] BETRAYAL!
Alien: Hardly. You fought me when I controlled your body. Now it's my turn to reply in kind.

Nega-Nick: [thinking, eyes squeezed shut in intense concentration] When you fused with me, all that was left was your mind in mine. I'll finish that off too!
Alien: [screaming in Nega-Nick's mind] YEEEAAARRGGH!

[[As Nega-Nick continues destroying the alien's presence in his mind, the SWAT officer over him raises his gun, preparing to strike Nega-Nick in the back of his head with the butt of his weapon's stock.]]
Alien: [in Nega-Nick's mind] Kill me... if you wish... but it will... be your last... act...

[[With a crack, the SWAT officer strikes Nega-Nick's head, and as his head rebounds off the floor everything fades to black.]]
