This was hard yet fun to make as it’s slightly less static than most Comfortably Numb comics, yet still more ‘flat’ than I would have preferred. I compensated by throwing in a Metal Gear Solid reference. A “Safety Kill” is a kill awarded when you’re too close to actually shoot someone but have them dead to rights, like when you’re six feet away.

One of the things I like about manga, cheap as it is, is to state what is going on in case the action in itself isn’t obvious enough, like Surprise Attack!, Charge!, Card Declined!
