Yes, I wrote the little “accents in dialog” bit under the previous page knowing full well what this page contained. I think the important thing to infer from this page is that lens flare guy recruited the other three, and they’ve never met without full kit on, so they don’t know who each other is. (Also it should give you some hint about the identity of Lens Flare there – even if some of you have already guessed it.) In my mind, that’s not a bad way to run a group of criminals… at least ones where they’re going to be wearing full face masks. Of course, that flies in the face of rule number one of the Evil Overlord’s List. Now, if you don’t have a base of operations and there’s nothing for the good guys to infiltrate, or clonk a guard on the head and don their outfit while escaping from the detention center, the full face concealing mask is less of a concern.

I’ve never understood “linguism” for lack of a better term. Like, making fun of people for their accent. If someone has a pronounced accent, it almost always means they speak more languages than the person taking the piss, especially here in America. Actually, I take it back, I understand linguism, I just don’t understand people thinking it’s some kind of grand slam on the person who speaks more languages than them. Besides, accent based humor can be really funny when done right.

The fact that racism is seemingly inherent to organized crime, be it gangs (street or prison) or gangsters always makes for a humorous moment for me when I see multicultural street gangs in TV shows. Like, if you take those same actors and put them in business suits, they’d all look at place smiling over some product shot in a stock photo. There’s the white guy, the black or asian woman, the asian or black guy, and a “brown.” Is he hispanic? Is he Indian? Is he one of the other kinds of brown that could be mistaken for one of the more well known kinds of brown? Doesn’t matter. All the boxes have been checked and the product is now inoffensively milquetoast.

Not that there’s anything wrong with diversity, of course. I’m not mocking inclusivity here, just the thought process that leads to things like street gangs that look like stock photo casting calls. This excludes heist movies. Of course they’re going to have a diverse cast. Handsome main guy, black guy with connections to the underground, sex pot, tiny flexible girl that can go through air vents and do the laser beam dance, the sketchy, skinny white guy who is the world’s best safecracker, burly black woman who is a top-tier mechanic, asian guy who in a shocking twist doesn’t know martial arts, but is instead a pharmaceutical wiz, and, uh… probably an old… let’s say, Italian guy. These days you might also see a stout pacific islander. I’d joke that there’s no such thing as a svelte Pacific Islander. The Rock isn’t the only one. I mean, Hawaii is a Pacific Island, and, you know. Hula girls.

But anyway, in the real world, criminals are weirdly racially insular, and don’t have to deal with things like hiring quotas. I wonder if you could fine a street gang for failing to meet diversity standards. I mean, no. The answer is definitely no, for multiple reasons. But… Hmm.

The new one is almost ready, but I’m back down at my parents helping out with my mom, and I just can’t work on boobie art when I’m here. I’ll get it up as soon as I can and hopefully you guys will enjoy it. I’ll try and figure out a way to get these done faster in the future.

The new vote incentive is up!

Every so often I get the urge to try and draw Maxima all properly shiny, and this… isn’t my favorite attempt if I’m honest. I’ve been sitting on this for a little while doing little tweaks, and decided to finally publish it cause I’m already behind on these. The next one will (almost definitely) resume the trend of including a little mini comic to extend the scene a bit.

As usual, Patreon has some outfit variations as well as sans flagrante.

Double res version will be posted over at Patreon. Feel free to contribute as much as you like.
