Commentary for September 14, 2018:
There are quite a few little tidbits on this page that set things up for the future -- mostly in the things the Empire stole from the facility, but also some things about what Eon will have to face eventually... and sooner than you might think, too.
There isn't a great deal to say about this page. I changed the dialogue a bit so that Paws could give Eon a bit of advice on dealing with extremists. I think I was most definitely channeling a bit of the current discussion regarding how best to deal with fascists. Is it right to punch Nazis? Well, there are those who'd say that, unless there is a clear and present danger of harm to another, violence is never the answer. On the other hand, there are those who would say that the moment somebody becomes a Nazi there is a clear and present danger of harm to others because doing harm to others is integral to Nazi ideology. You want my opinion? I agree with the latter. Nazis are a clear and present danger, because their beliefs necessarily lead to violence and oppression towards marginalised groups. If stopping them requires violence, I won't object to that violence.
Would I punch a Nazi myself, though? No. I'm a trans woman and I can't fight, whereas the kinds of people who gravitate towards far-right extremism (i.e. thugs and bullies) probably can and probably would like nothing more than to kill me. Now, if I could handle myself in a fight, it might be a different story.
I like to think I fight Nazis in my own way with the stories I tell in this comic, where extreme authoritarian regimes are always the bad guys, and the good guys are always the ones on the side of peace, freedom, and social justice.
