Schlock: "Undercover? What's that?"
« on: May 04, 2009, 04:40:20 PM »
So why can Schlock manage to hide and spy on his own company, but can't seem to manage it anywhere else?

He seems so incompetent, but sometimes has thinks quite strategically.

Maybe he's just ADD.

And if any of you are wondering about the backstory behind today's strip, here's where it begins.  Well, the bits that are most likely to be remembered at any rate.

I kinda like Schlock's approach to undercover. "Hey, guys, I found our contact" left me chuckling, at least. Let's not take all this cloak-and-dagger stuff too serious, huh :D

lol yes, this strip was pretty good :P

I've also been impressed more by the art. It seems like he's been doing a lot more detail in the backgrounds.

Uh, just wondering. Did you notice the young woman in the first panel saying "Hey, my face is up here"?

I almost wonder if today's strip is what all this lack of secrecy has been building up to?  Because with that buildup, today's comic is completely in character:)  Besides introducing new (or so old they're new) characters, of course.
