Two notes on today's Incidental Comics: 1). In Scandinavia, death-metal feuds are serious business -- one resulted in a homicide -- sort of like the old East Coast/West Coast rap beef except with viking horns instead of doo rags. 2). The name of the band is a nod to the excellent Mountain Goats song "The Best Ever Death Metal Band Out of Denton." Aren't you glad I pointed that out to you?
Just for fun, the end of the 1958 version of "The Fly." Yes, that's Vincent Price. I had totally forgotten he was in it. Trigger warning for people who are afraid of spiders or tiny scientists about to be eaten by spiders.
2069 - NO LONGER GOVERNED BY POLITICIANS, THE DEVELOPED WORLD IS DIVIDED UP INTO REGIONS CONTROLLED BY MEGA-CORPORATIONS KNOWN AS SYNDICATES. THESE SYNDICATES HAVE REVOLUTIONIZED HOW THE CONSUMER INTERACTS WITH THE DIGITAL WORLD. NO LONGER DOES THE CONSUMER REQUIRE A DEVICE TO ACCESS THE WORLD’S DATA AND CONTROL THEIR TECHNOLOGY, THEY CAN DO THIS AT THE BLINK OF AN EYE VIA NEURAL CHIP IMPLANT.
CIVILIANS FLOCKED TO BE “CHIP’D” AND ENJOY ALL THAT THEIR SELECTED SYNDICATE HAS TO OFFER; HOUSING, MEDICAL, BANKING, INSURANCE, EDUCATION, ENTERTAINMENT AND JOBS. ONE COMPLETE PACKAGE. ONE COMPLETE LIFESTYLE. IN RETURN, THE SYNDICATES GAINED UNPRECEDENTED INSIGHTS, AND CONTROL, OVER THE INDIVIDUAL AND THEIR BEHAVIOUR. WITH LITTLE GOVERNMENTAL OVERSIGHT, BUSINESS HAS BECOME WAR. THE SYNDICATES WILL STOP AT NOTHING FOR ULTIMATE MARKET DOMINANCE.
AT THE FRONT LINE OF THIS WAR ARE THE AGENTS, THE SYNDICATE’S BIO-ENGINEERED AND CHIP-AUGMENTED ENFORCERS. THEY CAN BREACH ANYTHING IN THE WIRED DATAVERSE INCLUDING THEIR ENEMIES, THEIR WEAPONS AND THE ENVIRONMENT THAT SURROUNDS THEM, MAKING THEM THE MOST EFFICIENT AND DEADLY TECHNOLOGICAL WEAPONS IN THE WORLD. TAKE ON THE ROLE OF MILES KILO, EUROCORP’S LATEST PROTOTYPE AGENT, AND EMBARK ON A BRUTAL ACTION ADVENTURE OF CORRUPTION AND REVENGE.
