I’ve been dreading this page a while… It’s probably too late for a CW if you’re already reading my comment here, but if you need content warnings in the future, the tumblr update post is always tagged for any applicable pages.
I’ve talked about this subject before (with this scene in mind actually), but the stuff that goes into this comic is part of a cohesive story, not for “shock value.” I’m also responsible for the content that goes into the comic research-wise, and I ask that you trust that I’m making purposeful, informed narrative decisions. Feel free, as always, to use the comments section or the reddit to start a conversation if you feel the need to do so! Just please keep in mind that this is, and has always been, a dark survival comic… we’ll be back to Mars soon, but realistically speaking, survival isn’t limited to remote wastelands. Making it through a typical day is difficult enough for many people.
Just a reminder though, by the start of the comic Michael is a successful, respected researcher who was selected to travel off planet to test a robot that he helped create. So, there’s that.
