    Yeah, I figured ole one ear might survive somehow. 😛

  2. Ken Cypher

    Saved by a technicality. …the lucky *******.

  3. nikolai60

    Wait…SERIOUSLY!?!?!? THEY’RE ALLOWED TO QUIT!?!?!?!?!?

  4. Josh.C

    @nikolai60: I guess it at least can be done by the volunteers. Though I was really looking forward to that kill…Maybe it can happen later?

    Though I like the expression on White noise in the second panel. Jolly Saint Nick was never so Jolly for such a reason. Its almost a shame that he has to make such a face at the end there.

  5. Maengun

    Damn cameras…… Wait who is talking through the camera?

  6. Shad

    WN looks PISSED in the last panel… if looks could kill….

  7. Shad

    Just a slight note…my antiviruses are going nuts whenever this page loads, such as to post a comment…may wanna check and make sure you dont have an infected ad or something….

  8. FTL

    Silk is getting some good expression time in this arc… that makes me happy… although I notice Qin has gone MIA today

    nikolai60 – Agree with you… thought no one, including volunteers, could quit….. ah, well…. although I did suspect that Xanatos’ actions may possibly have had a source other than himself so I’m not actually disappointed he isn’t going to die yet.

    Shad – No issues here with Comodo or McAfee (work and personal systems) so either it is fixed or you have a false positive on your scanner.

    @Shad / FTL: Make sure your system isn’t already compromised before you complain about mine. As far as I know, Project Wonderful only allows image ads, so there’s not a great infection vector to suspect here…

    @nikolai60: Well, you’re not much of a volunteer if you can’t withdraw your consent. Of course, it’s not exactly good form to do so while there’s a gun to your head…

  10. e_voyager

    Heh in all honestly i don’;t blame WN for been so pissed. How dare they veto his license to kill for the show. ( and did he really just snort?) but now i’m curious about what happens tho convicts that quite? are their prison sentences resumed or do they get a summery execution?

  11. Krev

    Wait, listen, wait! Listen!

  12. LeQuack147

    “DENIED!”

    Ah, that frustrating moment when a perfectly good kill slips away… (puts down his copy of CoD) I know that feeling, WN.

  13. Sulucamas

    Sarcasm? From the Captain? More please! 😮

    If the higher-ups didn’t have the power to punish (or just end) White, I don’t think he’d mind exercising the show’s “Anything Goes” clause. But then again, maybe that only applies to individuals that remain on the show. 😕

    Where are Cypress’s lawyers when you need them?

  14. e_voyager

    @jigsaw will you be free for the game tomorrow night in the usual room?

  15. Vulpis

    Xanatos was a volunteer? Huh…and here I thought he was one of the convicts.

    And Jig–I might point out that volunteering just means you signed up by choice, not by force, it’s not a guarantee of being able to just bail out hen you feel like it. Here’s hoping Xanatos gets something *worse* than death for his cowardice…

  16. The_Rippy_One

    @Sul: Cypress’s lawyers are probably behind her as she tells WN to back off.

    Love the “P’shah” feel of the second panel.

  17. xXZeddXx

    Awww don’t get your whiskers in a knot big guy,there are worse cases after all ;P

  18. Novawolf7

    @ Shad – Make sure you have the latest video drivers for your particular card. Your virus program may be spazzing over an outdated driver (mine has before).

    @ Comic – What a pansy! He can’t even face death with dignity. Love WN’s face in the last panel. That look would curdle mare’s milk. (Sorry, I couldn’t resist.)

  19. Shad

    @ Jigsaw:
    I loaded the webcomic, and malware bytes quaranteened a trojan. Then Norton SONAR blocked something, I close the tab and put comp in hibernation soon after, then wake it up to the spam ads for the fake antivirus.
    now yours wasn’t the only tab I had open, so it MAY have been someone else, but the timing is pretty suspicious that it jumped onto my computer right after i reloaded THIS page. I have adblock turned on now, and I’m not getting anything flaring up from my antivirus programs.

  20. Noxkitsune

    Hm… knowing White Noise’s previous responses to authority telling him what to do, it’s very likely there will still be brain splattering on the next page. Maybe he won’t risk it for murder, guess we’ll find out on sunday.

  21. Sulucamas

    @The_Rippy_One: It could be that Cypress is wearing her matriarch/producer’s hat, but that still sounds a little too formal. Maybe it’s Melody?

  22. Sabreur

    I’m okay with this. After all, he did just get humiliated on galactic television.

  23. Vulpis

    @Sulucamas Or worse…it’s Veled. 😉

  24. amadeus

  25. Shad

    @ Novawolf 7: sorry I didn’t see your remark before. No it’s not a driver issue, the virus I got is one of those that gets into your system and then advertizes a fake antivirus. This one wanted me to purchase “windows 7 antivirus 2012” to keep hoards of malware and other fake viruses from ransacking ‘sensitive systems’.

  26. Jigsaw Forte

    @Shad — keep in mind it takes time for malware to install itself on your system and behave in uncouth ways… in other words, the real culprit is a site you visited before mine.

  27. Sulucamas

    @Vulpis: Oh snap! Now, would that be worse for White, or worse for Xanatos? She could certainly offer something worse than death… 😈

  28. e_voyager

    @sulucamas that she could shivers. i don’t even want to know how long a soul stats self away when fed to some kind of living being.

    @jigsaw sorry i didn’t know the game would be canceled until almost time for work the day before the game and since i got in at 8 am i was a little tied and didn’t think to let you know of the change

  29. nikolai60

    @Jigsaw Well, I guess you’re right, but I’ve been in plenty of ‘volunteer’ situations I couldn’t back out of.

    Also, I wish I had posted this when I first saw the comic, but…

    ‘I’m sorry White, I can’t let you do that…’

  30. Novawolf7

    @ Shad – No worries, hope it works out ok.

    @ nikolai60 – *snicker* Good one.

  31. Hartree

    @Nikolai60: I can vouch that the “volunteer” army is like that. 🙂
