Paypal and Payoneer no longer work in my country, so I can't get money from Ko-fi, Gumroad, Buymeacoffe and ComicAd (the ad banners here).
The only tip jar I have left is Boosty. It accepts Paypal, all cards, any currency, then it converts it into rubles and sends to me. Boosty works the same way as Patreon + accepts one-time donations like Ko-fi and allows selling ebooks.

Now, when Faith has got her proof Nolan is no longer an "old man" but a "boy" to her. And his problem is finally adressed. Elie's people would be extremely happy to hear what she says about the vaccine and the way to stop cytokine storm, but none of it can help Nolan now. His immune system is irreparably broken after six years on surviving on nanites and reverting it to the original state is still scifi. But something in Faith's tone suggests she still can offer a solution of some kind.


Well, at this point it's likely either back into the deep freeze until a cure for "borked immune system" is found or palliative care until he dies.

Yes, not much of a choice here.

I wish Faith could have her own spinoff comic -- I'm so curious about her life before she got to this point.

That would be mostly war, war, and more war, all for no good purpose but only to let the Atlanteans play their games. Would it be interesting?

It would be interesting in that that was her life, plus the fact that she was genetically engineered not to have compassion, but she still shows it to a stranger. Also how she wound up in this job!

Compassion is not an emotion, it's a decision, so even a sociopath can have it (also, people with severe autism and people in deep depression). You don't need to feel things in order to be kind. Emotions are overrated.
As to Faith's story, I dislike the idea of making a war story but a story where she became an ally to Mars Awakenes might be interesting.

Oh yeah, I meant it was interesting that she defaults(?) by this age to choosing compassion, even with all the cards stacked against it, but the philosophy around free will is waaaaay above my pay grade!
