Hey, they're the most powerful company in the world! They're supposed to protect themselves!
You know, the world was only slightly different before the financial crisis. Sure, for the average joe it's more difficult to find a job. But my generation was told from the get-go that getting a job would (a) be hard to do and that (b) there was no hope of holding on to one job for too long. My generation is expected to surrender everything - family, home, personal interests - in favor of the job. I started working on A.D in 2000, and even Bombshell, my decidedly more paramilitaristic take on the anti-corporate Zeitgeist, was launched some months before people started talking about a new financial crisis.
This may just be a long-winded way of saying: Hey folks, I told ya so. If you'd only listened to me.
But, if you're reading this, then I guess you're the wrong person to complain to! So, thanks for reading :P
(Weekly updates don't seem to work out too well these days... sorry!)
P.S.: Fun fact: Polyphemus first appeared on ep. 2, page 7.
