Mystery solved! Congratulations to the commenters who guessed The Bombardier’s secret. We’ll reveal more about Airman Johns and why he’s forced to hide his race in the coming pages, but for now, remember that our story takes place during a time when racism was much more prevalent than it is today, and the armed forces had not yet been integrated.

We’re happy to make our comic available for free on this site, but it takes money and lots and lots of time to bring you a new page every week. If you enjoy our comic and would like to support us, check out the new shop page. It contains links to sites where you can buy print or pdf versions of our comics as well as Specialists merchandise and more. You’ll be helping us to keep this site going and you’ll get some cool stuff in exchange. It’s win-win!
