    That's what I'm saying. :) Think about it, this guy has probably been bullied all his life for just his name alone. When we first see him, he's sitting in a convertible with the top down in the rain. Something major has just gone down with him. Most seem to think it's that he got fired, but I don't think so. Something bigger than that happened, and now he has manipulated his way into a lowly position in this company and already gotten one person fired for no reason. At this point, we must ask ourselves, "What is Isaac's endgame? What does he plan to achieve?" I predict a systematic destruction of the company from the inside, because who better to do that than someone at the bottom of the ladder but with so much riding on his position? QA is the end of the line before production, and if Isaac corrupts it, he can cause the whole infrastructure to collapse.

    BOOM.

    He has already asserted a strong amount of influence on the head of the company...

    Man...

    That wasn't where I was going with that at all. I was just saying, "Maybe Isaac actually is supposed to be a dick, and we aren't supposed to take pity on him."

    I know from experience that QA is no bed of roses, but between the rather dark plot line and the depressing stories, this comic is more depressing than entertaining for me so far. My stints in QA were pretty dark days, both as a job and as a part of a season of my life, so maybe take my opinion with a grain of salt.
