Here’s my latest comic: https://inhumaneresourcescomic.com/#/panel/355.
Many things about Julius are reflections of me, but none as much as this. My father was obsessive politically before it was in. He didn’t live to see Trump, and I can’t imagine him ever sleeping with such an apt target for rage.
I didn’t keep up with my father’s news diet, and he almost always jumped from topic to topic. Graf 13 doesn’t exist, and I was trying to think who’d report on it if it did. I wanted something that was kind of like the NSA in the early eighties, an agency that only people in the know whispered about.
So I was thinking who’d be poking at an agency with so much exploitable power, and I came up with mostly the leftist places Ada rattles off. I think of Ada as largely apolitical.
