I could have made all new agents, but I figured, why not recycle? It’s good for the environment.
Honestly, up until the point of actually writing this comic, I had no idea if Skip was going to kill Goddard or not. In the end I decided that it was more in line with Skip’s character, or perhaps Skip decided it was more in line with his character, to not kill someone. There are some characters who let anger and vengeance fuel them so completely that they will destroy whoever had seriously wronged them, and then there are some who are content to make the targets of their vengeance just soil themselves.
