Book 1: The Tub of Happiness — Bombs Ahoy
The red separator bar in today's strip spawned a very disturbing discussion thread on the Schlock Mercenary Forum. Click here to read the whole thing.


Breya: Captain tagon, did you know corporal schlock has been day-trading shares of the company in his spare time?
Tagon: I guess those options we gave everybody went to his lumpy little head.
Breya: It's worse than that. I checked the exchanges, and apparently he owns sixty-two percent of the common stock. He can sit on the board with our investors, and dictate terms to us if he wants to.
Tagon: I wonder what he wants...
Schlock: I want to be a sergeant.
Tagon: You drive a hard bargain, soldier.
