Les Enfants Miserables

CAMPBELL: So, Snake, your mission is to defeat Liquid Snake... your evil twin! And stop the nuke from being launched. Any questions before we continue the briefing? SNAKE: Yeah... can I borrow those scissors? NAOMI: Certainly Snake, but why? SNAKE: We don't want anyone mistaking me for the leader of the terrorists. CAMPBELL: Snake, our ENTIRE PLAN hinged around you being mistaken for the leader of the terrorists.Much later:SNAKE: Otacon, are you getting this? This is OFF THE HOOK. It turns out there was a third twin: ex-President George Sears! OTACON: Snake, didn't you ever wonder why the President had your exact same face? SNAKE: ...nnnnnnnno.
From now on all of my comics will consist of nitpicking about obscure plot points in decade-old video games. I really feel that this is my strongest material and will lead to commercial success.

"Gotcha, suckers!"

Warning: The following comic contains a spoiler for Heavy Rain. Yes, that's right. I am now reduced to drawing comics about games I do not own but have watched somebody else play on the internet. Also I had to spend longer than I care to admit recompositing the final panel with digital trickery, because it turns out that after 28 years I still can't draw. Anyway, that's enough spoiler space.

Supplemental warning: Do not buy Heavy Rain. Instead, watch somebody else play it on the internet.MANFRED: Shelby, old friend! How can I help? SHELBY: We're conducting an investigation to find the killer. Maybe your expertise can help us. Perhaps you can tell us who owns a 1907 Royal typewriter? MANFRED: The Royal 5? Why, didn't you bring one of those in for repair a while back? SHELBY: I, uh, probably wouldn't read too much into this.
