So enough of the introductory gabbing, here are the comics: Cyborgs, a shadowy arms dealer, and the brink of world war….

“Liberator #1”

“Liberator #1”

…And sometimes evil is doing nothing in the face of atrocity.  I love my cat. This may not be a surprise statement to those who know me, but the thought of anything cruel or painful happening to him will make me cry without hesitation. What about other animals though?
