Strip by: Calebyte

Garfield: Hi. I'm here to enlist.
Der Trihs: You can't. You aren't human.
Sign: Travel the galaxy!
{Garfield starts unsheathing a claw}
Der Trihs: You see, little fella, we don't do sociological stuff like "interspeciated workplaces." We're a crack company of space mercenaries. We do "hurting people" and "breaking things".
Sign: Meet fascinating life-forms...
{Garfield points his claw at Der Trihs}
Garfield: Sounds like my kind of fun.
Der Trihs: When can you start?
Sign: ...and kill them

This is the first webcomic I have ever made.

It struck me how similar Garfield and Schlock were; they're both sociopathic blobs who eat enormous amounts and use violence to achieve their goals.
