A reminder to all my readers that if you read and enjoy Stalker, you can help us continue to bring you great stories by joining our current Kickstarter. We’ve reached our first stretch goal, so every pledge of $6 or more gets four bonus comics from our friends at Boston Metaphysical Society, Spying With Lana, CornRows and Miskatonic High. There’s only three days left, so it’s time to make that leap and pledge.
ONE SPOT LEFT: You can appear in this comic, Stalker #7, but you have to act fast, before our last walk on role reward is snatched by someone else.
For our Patreon Backers, as always, you can find the high resolution, print quality version of this page here. Not a Patron yet? Sign up for WiP posts and sneak peaks at what’s coming in future Stalker episodes.
We rejoin Stalker’s story several hours after the news hit about the catastrophic incident at the ARMORCorps demonstration. It’s been a frantic day for much of the staff as they field calls from the press, try to find out what happened, and come up with a plan of action. Of course the impact to the business is a major concern. STi is a multibillion dollar, international corporation with stock holders to answer to, so no incident of this sort is going to go by without a lot of discussion of how to handle things with the smallest possible impact to quarterly numbers and stock prices.
As we join the Executive Board, the business day is over and things are starting to become clear as to what has happened and what the impacts are likely to be. Stanford Stane has called a meeting to get everyone on the same page and working together to deal with the consequences of the accident and protect the company. The Office of Legal Counsel will be an important part of this, so Tom Howard is here, and as his shadow, Carrie is along as well.
As we get back into the story pages, you’ll notice a change in the art. Blake Wilkie is back on colors, complimenting Fabio’s great illustration. You may remember Blake from earlier issues of Stalker. Blake colored issues 1, 3, 4 and most of Gateway Legends. More recently, Blake did an alternate cover for Stalker #6.
