    In the game the enemies will regularly taunt you and yell shit while standing in an area they think is safe.

    "Shadows are for pussies, Fisher!" "I hear you're good Fisher, why don't you show us?" "Fisher's old but he's got skill!"

    that's how i'm reading it. advertising something called "The Cove", advertising a PSA about prostate cancer, something about nutritional workout supplements. i just interpret it as slightly-more-subtle in-game advertising.

    The comic is about how NPCs try, unsuccessfully, to threaten Fisher.

    Their chatter is so nonthreatening that they, they being G&T, humorously juxtapose it with casual conversation.

    This comic amuses me.

    Especially since the enemies always know that it's SAM FISHER who is doing the shooting, even when you are starting a mission and no one has seen you.

    It doesn't work so well when spoken aloud.

    Referencing "The Cove" still works as a pun, though.
