It's entirely an accident that security technology appears in this one. Though appropriate given this month's anniversary of 9/11. We all continue to pay through sacrificing our dignity and "giving the guys hours of fun". One bit I'm not sure works, is where the pretty young thinktanker dares to interrupt Artemisia. I wanted to make the thinktanker's crime pretty innocuous - I've seen this happen several times in my working life - so when the red mist descends and all the toys are thrown out of the pram, it's really quite unexpected. But very entertaining for the onlookers.
This blog is the public outlet for my slightly satirical manga. I started out doing these to keep up the spirits of my work colleagues as they struggled daily in the state bureaucracy. Policy Police proper has gone into hibernation for a bit - as I'm no longer inside the machine, I lack the bile to bring these out quite as regularly. So I'm slowly building the next story and will return when I'm happy with what I've got.
In the meantime I'm publishing a series of 4-panel comics, The Marchers, based on an idea I had a long long time ago.
You can find all the comics by clicking on THE STORIES tab just below the banners at the top. Or click on the red Marchers banner to take you to their home on Smack Jeeves.
