If you missed the April Fools' Day prank, go here; it will also be available forever after via the "Miscellaneous" page and the archive. The special one-off banner willbe posted on the "Miscellaneous" page. The comic you see above is the one that I would have posted on Wednesday if I hadn't decided to be silly instead.

Some of you have asked, so:

No, Treachery, Incorporated doesn't really exist, but yes, it is a fully realised story that has been growing in my head for a while now. I started off thinking I would make it into a comic, but I'm now leaning towards writing it as a novel. The excerpt on the April 1 page comes from quite early in the story and features two of the major characters: a young woman named Sam who starts everything off by horribly betraying her best friend, and a bike courier named Mor who delivers a certain essential message to her apartment soon afterwards. Of course, absolutely nothing is as it seems. With a title like that, it wouldn't be.

Panel 1: Somewhere in Davies College, Frankie approaches Steve.

Frankie [unsmiling]: Good luck.

Steve: Is that sarcasm?

Panel 2:

[rolls her eyes]: you know, I hate you and everything you stand for.

Steve: Of course.

Panel 3:

Frankie: Nevertheless, I wish you good luck.

Panel 4: They stand watching Casey arguing with Marie, Reg arguing with Stella, and Paul standing there looking lost.

Frankie: No matter who wins, you'll need it.

Steve: Alas.

Alt-Text: Good luck and a lot of tact. Too bad Steve has neither.
