Even the guilty are entitled to representation.

What purpose would a lawyer serve me? I have admitted my guilt.

Are you sure you don't want a lawyer?

You think you are above the law?

I will never see a trial. That was never the intention for me.

Not at all. But I was told I would never leave this station. They control everything.

Choas ripped through Ktoburijji City today as District 143 Police Station was the central point of a terrorist bombing.

The casualty list remains unconfirmed at this time but it is believed that over forty five Police Agents lost their lives.

What's the prognosis Doctor?

Re:Gen Private Hospital.

ReGens are designed to recover from gun shots, stab wounds and broken bones. We have never had any survive an explosion before.

All I can say is that its promising. There is still extensive brain damage.

Does that mean the tests were successful, they are alive after all?

There is no value to an immortal body, if the brain can't survive.

How do you smuggle a bomb into a high security police station?

You have had plenty of time now Colonel, what have your investigators discovered?

It was the suspect. The CCTV confirmed it.

There was practically nothing left of the culprit,

But from what we can tell. The bomb was surgically implanted within his body.

Not yet, but as far as the media are concerned they have. We've made sure of that. 

So it was a suicide bomber; have the Renovonoids claimed responsibility?

Kepler City, Lunar Surface. League of Nations Headquarters

The vote will take place today.

Fate is smiling on us. I really can't see a rejection now.

You've said that before. But that chamber is full of bleeding heart pacifists.

Trust me Colonel, I will get you your war.

And what about the Minister?

Keep an eye on him. What ever he does get word to me straight away.

Send a message to General Connors; tell her I am on my way.

Yes Sir.

Were we responsible for the Ktoburijji City bombing?

We don't have an answer yet but the media has pinned it on us. 

If any of our cells go rogue then we loose unity. Our cause becomes diluted and we become weaker. 

Contact every cell, I want to know who did this without my consent!

Sora, I assume you will want who ever it was...taken care of?

We need to re-establish order Tadao; before things get messy. 

Things are already messy Sora. I will do what I can but we may have to reach out to them sooner than we had anticipated. 

Establish secure connection to Operative. Code Name Python. 

Voice ID confirmed. Input command.

Voice Identification required... Acess Granted... Establisiching Seccure Connection...

Computer confirm voice identification...Sora Nakano.

That is going to be difficult Sora. They were caught in the attack in Ktoburijji. 

The Betas, we need to make contact with them now.

What can I do for you Sora?

Mmmmmm.....!?!

This is remarkable. Your lost limbs have completely regenerated.The exterior damage seems to have completely healed.  

Your voice? There is still damage to the Broca's area of the brain. Once it heals your voice will return.

I bet you never thought this would happen when you volunteered?

You have both been handed immortality.

Immortality hurts like hell.

These results are better than any of us could have imagined. It will make them a fortune.

"The Chair recognises Minister Patrick Duffy of The United Irish Republic."

Madam President, the Japanese bombing serves to remind us of the mistakes we have made in the past.  

In our attempt to play God, we forgot our humanity. We discarded the early test subjects as if they were merely scientific waste.

It may not be popular to say in this chamber but the Renovoniods are a product of our doing.

Now their descendants seek revenge.

Over one hundred years ago members of this council approved the genetic engineering which created our regenerative soldiers.

No one in this chamber needs a history lesson. It is because of history that we constantly deny your proposal to lift the ban on Genetic manipulation of the human genome.

What purpose could a new generation of Renovonoids serve?

Our Renovonoid Terrorists have overthrown several Governments and started to build their own nation. They bombed Ktoburijji City as clear message to us. To show us that we are weak.

Then table a motion Minster Duffy. But I reserve the right to amend any proposal so that it is not brought back up in this chamber again...should you lose.

A war is coming and it is one that we can't win. We must readdress the balance or...

Lock the building down, get the medics in here now.

Oh my God, he has been shot.

He is alive but we need to get him into the operating theatre, the bullet is dangerously close to his heart.

We should inform all of member Governments that the League has been suspended.

For only the day surely? This is an act of terrorism. Suspending the council sends the wrong message. Democracy has to prevail.

Trouble escalated today, this time in the heart of the political arena.

At this stage no particular group has claimed responsibility for the attack but early indications suggest that this is just another in a long line of Renovonoid terrorist attacks.

Breaking News: Terrorist Attack in Lunar Capital

During a council address, Minister Patrick Duffy of the United Republic of Ireland, was shot in what is a first Assassination attempt on a member of the League of Nations.

The Minister's condition is described as serious but stable. We'll bring you more on this news as it develops.

Rehab is over Doc. 

We have to get to the moon as soon as possible. 

So how is my man on the inside?

I'm not YOUR man! I am doing this for my own cause. 

Say whatever you need to make yourself feel better.

Just give me an update.

Sora has sent me to find the person responsible for the bombing in Ktoburijji City. When she finds out its me she will want my blood. 

Then you had better find a culprit for her. I need you alive and I need the rogue Renovonoids operating under my banner. 

We know our role. But Sora may need to be eliminated. 

All the pawns you mean?

All the chess pieces are in place.

Exactly, its all going to plan.

League of Nations Meeting Hall, The Moon.

Doing our job Quinn. We are investigators, so lets investigate.

So boss, why are we here?

Well you're the gun nut, who could have done a shot like that?

The bullet entered through the glass roof. From the adjacent roof top. That's a difficult shot.

I could have, but luckily I have an alibi. Keeva this took some serious skill. A sniper, military trained.

I'm going to pull the external CCTV, see if we can find out how our sniper got to the roof.

I will talk to some of the military security. Something doesn't add up here.

Kepler City Hospital.

The Irish Minister undergoes the treatment to save his life. 

I am doctor Tomoe Naramura, I am Minister Duffy's personal physician. I need you to get word to the Doctor operating on the Minster and tell them to stop right away.

Have you removed the bullet Doctor?

Yes I have and you are interrupting some of the more delicate internal repairs. Time is crucial Doctor, I am sure you understand.  

I do, but I must ask you to now stop what you are doing to the Minister and turn his care over to myself.

Are you out of your mind? He is bleeding internally. I will not abandon my patient.

I guess I have no choice. But make no mistake, I will file a protest with the General Medical Council.

I am afraid you misunderstood me Doctor. This was not a request. Remove yourself and your staff from that room, or I will have you arrested.

Make sure what ever communication she sends is encoded for military eyes only. 

You do that Doctor. 

Now lets see what those butchers have done to you.

Doesn't look too bad. Now we just play the waiting game.

I'm Chief Inspector Keeva Yamamoto, League of Nations PD. I'm investigating the assassination attempt on Minister Patrick Duffy.

I wasn't aware there was a military investigation. I need to see the CCTV for the campus grounds for the time of the shooting and the preceding hour.

Oh, you are working with the military investigation team?

I'm sorry Inspector I can't.

This is a police investigation; IF I HAVE TO, I will get a Warrant issued for the recordings.

Sorry Inspector, you don't understand. I'd happily give you the recordings, but the files and the backups were taken by the military investigators.

What?

Detective Quinn Marakami, could you point me in direction of your CO?

Colonel, could I have a moment of your time?

You are standing in the middle of a military operation. All moments are precious.

Well what can I do for the Police Department? 

My Partner and I are investigation the assassination attempt. I was just wondering of you could answer a few questions?

I know only too well sir. I was once a Special Forces sniper before I signed up to the Police Department. 

I think you had better contact your superiors; the assassination investigation is a military matter. 

No they can't, but they have also taken taken evidence. Any idea who the highest ranked officer here is?

Seems we ain't welcome here boss; the military has taken the investigation. Can they do that?

I spoke to a Colonel downstairs. But the moon's military forces are under the command of General Samantha Connors. 

Horizon, League of Nations Military Base, Lunar Surface.

They don't look particularly happy that we're here. 

I was aware some top brass police investigators had arrived, I wasn't aware that it was our own Renovoniods.

Actually General, we prefer Re:Gens. In the current climate we wouldn't want to be mistaken for a terrorist cell.

Especially when surrounded by some heavily armed soldiers that don't necessarily know the difference.

Now, now Mr Murakami. You were once one of us. You know our training wouldn't allow us to make such a mistake. Now what can I do for you?

Hopefully a simple matter General. We are investigating the assassination attempt and it seems that the military is interfering with our case.

Obviously, just a misunderstanding Chief Inspector.

I thought as much. I'd really appreciate it if the CCTV footage was turn over to me.

That won't be happening. I believe it's you who have misunderstood this situation.

The assassination attempt will be investigated by our military personnel only. And they will report to me.

The military does not have any authority to conduct a criminal investigation. The League of Nations Police Charter is quite clear on that.

An assassination attempt is not a declaration of war.

Rules and Regulations change. Especially at a time of war.

No...But IT IS a declaration of intent.

... and the intent is something we are obliged to respond to.

Now, I am afraid I have to ask  you to leave. When the declaration of war is made official this base will become off limits to civilians. 

Well that was interesting.

INTERESTING? She is mad.

Actually, I think she is quite sane AND extremely dangerous.

Despite the danger, the Government would not give into terrorism.

After discussing the current situation with our military advisers; I formally declare that the League of Nations is now at War with the Renovoniod States.

I have therefore reached the conclusion that my time as president has come to an end. However, before I step down from frontline politics I have one last executive order to issue.

In light of the Japanese bombing, and yesterday's assassination attempt, it would seem we are more vulnerable than I ever imagined.

My fellow Ministers, after listening to the voices of the Government it would seem I am out of touch with the prevailing thought and opinion of so many of you.

It will of course be up to the Ministerial Vote to elect my successor; but I would urge the ministers here present to enact a temporary stratocracy to help bring this war to a swift end.

Well...you GOT what you wanted!

"War is never the first thing we look for; I consider myself more a peacekeeper than a war maker.

...After the Ktoburijji bombing, followed shortly by the attempted assassination of Minster Patrick Duffy; our Government saw fit to establish a temporary military rule of the League and declare a state of war." 

...The Renovonoid Community controls most of the American Continent. They have amassed a considerable military fleet. The threat they pose to the League of Nations is very real.

...But when my Government calls on me to act, I am bound by duty to respond.

In this dramatic turn of events it is expected that the military will take the war to the Renovoniod territories. More on this Breaking News as it develops. 

After a surprise announcement by President Welsh, a unanimous vote passed a full military solution to the ongoing tension between the League of Nations and the Renovoniod Community. 

The temporary Military Government will be lead by the Chairwoman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Samantha Connors.

So that's it, we're sidelined and we are at war.

But we can't investigate the assassination?

War was always inevitable. But sidelined...no we are just going about this the wrong way.

Exactly!

The bombing.

If we investigate the assassination attempt we will just hit a wall. But someone did try to kill us!

Computer tie in with Police Central mainframe. Access Keeva Yamamoto personal case notes - Voice Authorisation Chief Inspector Yamamoto. 

Voice Identification confirmed. Accessing personal case notes. Please specify data file name. 

Access file 8203, attempted murder suspect. Cross reference with any file created for the Ktoburijji bombing.

Suspected Identification - Harvey Jenkins. Male 33 years old. 

Computer - Last known address of suspect Harvey Jenkins?

Last known address - 22b Armstrong Arcade, Kepler City. 

Perhaps. But first we need to figure out why we picked him up for murder in Ktoburijji. 

It just so happens that our Ktoburijji bomber lives on the moon? That's one hell of a coincidence.

22b Armstrong Arcade, Kepler City.

The place is completely empty. 

Maybe he never really lived here. The apartment could just have been registered in his name. 

Quinn, keep looking around the apartment. I am going to talk to the neighbours. 

Good afternoon, I am Chief Inspector Yamamoto. Would you mind if I asked a few questions about your neighbour in 22B? 

He disappeared?

Of course, although I haven't seen Harvey in a few months.

He was in the military?

No not disappear, but he is away a lot. But that is just life in military I guess.

He still is.

0h my God. How did it happen?

I'm sorry to be the one to inform you... but Mr Jenkins is dead.

I'm afraid I'm not at liberty to discuss that.

The military cleared his apartment; when was this?

I suppose it does explain why the military cleared out his apartment.

Oh, about a week ago. And it was definitely the military; they were wearing uniforms.

It's hard isn't it, remembering who's side you are on? 

You and I Sora are going to do what no one has done before us. A truly United Earth, no matter the cost.

More on this Breaking News as it develops.  | After a surprise announcement by President Welsh, a unanimous vote passed a full military solution to the ongoing tension between the League of Nations and the Renovoniod Community.  | The temporary Military Government will be lead by the Chairwoman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Samantha Connors.Image source(s)Breaking News.jpgNews Desk1.pngNews Desk1a.pngWAR.jpg
So that's it, we're sidelined and we are at war. | But we can't investigate the assassination? | War was always inevitable. But sidelined...no we are just going about this the wrong way.Image source(s)News desk.jpgunderground street 1.pngKeeva Car 1.png
Exactly! | The bombing. | If we investigate the assassination attempt we will just hit a wall. But someone did try to kill us!Image source(s)underground street 2.png

Perhaps. But first we need to figure out why we picked him up for murder in Ktoburijji.  | It just so happens that our Ktoburijji bomber lives on the moon? That's one hell of a coincidence.Image source(s)Keeva Car 2a.pngKeeva Car 2.pngBiodome City 2.png

The place is completely empty.  | Maybe he never really lived here. The apartment could just have been registered in his name. Image source(s)Armstrong Arcade 2.png
Quinn, keep looking around the apartment. I am going to talk to the neighbours. Image source(s)Armstrong Arcade 3.png

Good afternoon, I am Chief Inspector Yamamoto. Would you mind if I asked a few questions about your neighbour in 22B? Image source(s)Police Badge.pngApartment Corridor 2.png
He disappeared? | Of course, although I haven't seen Harvey in a few months.Image source(s)Apartment Corridor 3.png
He was in the military? | No not disappear, but he is away a lot. But that is just life in military I guess. | He still is.Image source(s)Apartment Corridor 4.png
0h my God. How did it happen? | I'm sorry to be the one to inform you... but Mr Jenkins is dead. | I'm afraid I'm not at liberty to discuss that.Image source(s)Apartment Corridor 5.png
The military cleared his apartment; when was this? | I suppose it does explain why the military cleared out his apartment.Image source(s)Apartment Corridor 6.png
Oh, about a week ago. And it was definitely the military; they were wearing uniforms.Image source(s)Apartment Corridor 7.png

So many terrific elements to this and a good story line. I think you might consider breaking really long episodes into somewhat shorter ones to help keep the readers' peak interest.

Hi, thanks for the comment. Your right shortening the comic would probably be better (certainly would be easier for the creative part) - I think the reason I have stuck to the longer format so far is to keep it in line with the comics I read. For each of the comics I have created so far I have 3 issues planned (with around 23 pages in each).
