Well the ladies look REALLY good.

And YAY, questions that have been plaguing us getting answered!

Edit- LOL at the alt-text. Yes, yes she does look that good (or should it be, Sleeping Beauty, Rose?
Princess Series
). Wonder if we will get to see her fighting prowess? :-)

some questions have been answered, but now I got a BAD feeling for the ultimate fate of Demiclus... He did everything right, and there's a strong possibility that he will have charges of "Dereliction of Duty" laid on him through no fault of his own.

Love the page, but this kinda sux...

I like how miko is all "Step one, done. Step two, let's do this now."

She's a little mission focused. As in lets get my loved one outa here!

On their way!

He's only mostly dead & she's a Doctor'

Miraiko has been busy protecting her love.

And Julia will do everything she can to keep Democlus alive. I just hope the ship Miraiko has hidden has both the room and the medical supplies necessary.

Guess I called one right last page. That looks like one hell o a scalpel Julia is lugging around. Is she auditioning to be the Doctor on TeeDees team?
mjkj 2nd Dec 2016, 2:56 AM edit delete reply

Oh, they came that same way...

I believe they have saved / are saving Demo...

...too bad Arianna is gone... *sighs*

@alt text: so true, so true - but Julia seems a bit lost... (though I believe not much longer - since she soon has to do some doctor's work...)

So, uh... Why is Miraiko in her underwear now, rather than the weird hi-tech armour she had before?...
mjkj 2nd Dec 2016, 3:08 AM edit delete reply

I believe that is the extended version... =P serious: maybe it is too hot in it with all the fires around? Or she can activate it with just a thought? Or it is in camouflage mode that looks like underwear or simply is invisible? Or she gave it to Julia... (nah, Julia does not seem to wear it either...)

Speaking of what Miraiko is or is not wearing, I notice that she no longer wears a slave collar. What was involved in getting that off?
Gilrandir 2nd Dec 2016, 9:50 AM edit delete reply
Although (as best I can tell) no actual lock is shown as part of Miaiko's slave collar, I suspect that may just be a result of the artist attempting to avoid 'polygon poisoning'. So, to answer your question, @StellarJay, I would guess 'a key'? ^_^
Stormwind13 2nd Dec 2016, 10:43 AM edit delete reply

Since Julia was her 'owner' and should have had the key/code for it, its removal shouldn't have been a problem. The collars may have been 'bugged' to allow monitoring of the slaves. Which could have been part of how the Cassians know where people are.

As for Miraiko's outfit (which I wholeheartedly approve of, she looks yummy) I think it is workout clothes or maybe even an yoga outfit. We know that Miraiko has some cyber enhancements and (I believe) it was hinted at that she might have MORE than we realize. She might not need the armor for anything but a pitched battle. In fact, being armored might invite more attention than running around in more 'normal' clothing.
Timotheus 2nd Dec 2016, 6:56 AM edit delete reply

I was wondering about that costume change too.
Gilrandir 2nd Dec 2016, 9:30 AM edit delete reply
Escorting Kyle was a comparatively risk-free enterprise, since no one knew they were going anywhere and no one was actually hunting them. Accordingly, Miraiko could 'dress down' in relatively modest full-coverage armor. Now that the city has exploded in violence and she has to protect Julia, Miraiko needs the more complete protection of the Chainmail Bikini, so all the armor has to come off. ^_^
Ryu Santos 2nd Dec 2016, 12:20 PM edit delete reply

In that case, wouldn't it make more sense to have both of them in chainmail bikinis?
Gilrandir 2nd Dec 2016, 12:57 PM edit delete reply
Perhaps, but Julia's never impressed me with her good sense or decision making ability. She does have the rare, and highly desirable, trait in a sidekick of actually wanting to stay out of the action, under the radar, and out of trouble. That would seem to be why she takes direction (from Miraiko, from Setorius, from Maxus, etc.) so well, especially when they are advising her about the safest and least obtrusive course of action to follow. But, if you handed her a magic bikini, exposing fan-service-y amounts of flesh and explaining to her that it would keep her much safer than Kevlar clothing and sensible shoes, I suspect she would merely look at you askance and think you were seeking to deceive her as part of the Patriarchial Conspiracy. I mean ... really! ^_^

Left to herself, however, I would say her decisions tend to be ... suspect. @Stormwind13's archival search capabilities are much better than mine and I am disinclined to page through the archives to the last time we saw Julia; however, as I recall, Julia has prudently made at least a token effort to guard herself against hazards by changing out of her full-coverage top into a low-cut blouse with a MIL-STD cleavage suitable for traversing hazardous areas. If Miraiko dressed her, it may even include the perforated tear-away sections designed to expose extra flesh (appearing as mysterious rips in the fabric) if the wearer should unexpectedly come under fire.

if you are wearing armor ( heavy or otherwise ) they shoot you first an with the nasty stuff first.! no armor no threat...
HiFranc 2nd Dec 2016, 4:00 AM edit delete reply

This leaves me with a few questions:

Was she already out of New Rome when Max sought her location? How does the computer know where people are? If there is some kind of tag in everyone, was it removed?

It's clear that Julia was told that Kyle is still alive? Does that mean that they are Kyle's extraction team? Would she have been told if the others hadn't seen him?
Stormwind13 2nd Dec 2016, 11:00 AM edit delete reply

I'm pretty sure Julia knew Kyle wasn't dead before he woke up in the morgue. Setorius had tasked Julia with the examination and yet she wasn't there when he awoke.

After Trust (24 October 2014) Julia knew a lot more of what was going on. On RAGE!! (8 April 2015), Miraiko told Julia to get him out of there, quickly.

I imagine there was an interesting conversation on the way down to the morgue. Julia's slave going with her wouldn't raise many flags, so they could get away with it.

As for Julia & Miraiko being Kyle's primary extraction team, I'm doubtful. Rose would want agents to deal with their own egress. Kyle has (had) a perfectly fine craft for getting home.

Now having them nearby in case there is a problem, that would be entirely in keeping with Rose's personality. Rose probably has her other agents (we met two of them, there are probably more) ready to burn their covers and assist, if it were necessary.

Computer doesn't need too many tags, Douchie had more Security Cams in Nova Roma than London of today(Fun Fact: 1 camera for every 11 people or 5.9 million in the UK.)
