[Comic for Friday, October 31, 2014]


[[Patty, Trish, and Dexter are reacting to Colonel Lionel Barker's news that the three of them should now be immune to the Physarics' control. Dex lifts the back of Patty's hair to reveal the patch the Colonel placed there earlier.]]
Dex: You're immune to their control? So you have one of these patches too?
Colonel: Not quite. I came to my immunity by... other means. But those patches were derived from my resistance.

Colonel: [turning away] Let's cut to the chase, shall we? I'm well aware of your allegiance with my son, Jason. I'm also aware of your many... escapades in his company.
[[All three react with surprise.]]
Patty: Your... son?

Colonel: [speaking over his shoulder to them] Ah, so he still refuses to speak of me. No matter. He'll come around eventually. He'll HAVE to, as you ALL must. For the fate of the human race rests in our hands, together.

[[He turns and faces them again, bending over slightly, both hands on a table in front of him.]]
Colonel: Tell me, my friends... Are you familiar with the legend of Odysseus and his encounter with Scylla and Charybdis...?
