Sebastian Mallory seems to exhibit quite some schadenfreude here... In spite of all the civility amongst each other, all those collectors of mysterious artifacts still are sort of rivals after all...
But of course, it's nevertheless not nice to make fun of someone becoming the victim of a burglary - and sometimes, karma strikes back!

1) Yeah, he totally should've gone with Aegis Securitechno... :)

2) Nice bit in Panel 2, with the Audrey Hepburn there. :)

You got both of the in-jokes/references! Two points!! :-D

BTW, at one point I actually considered asking either you or CG for permission to use Aegis or Maerc respectively, but then opted against that due to the "completely ineffective buffoons" angle I wanted to go with the security guys here...

Chippewa Ghost

Completely ineffective? Seven Goats indeed.

And for your reference, Aegis bought out MSV. Maybe for everyone's benefit they need to make a foreign acquisition...

Yep, I chose the name specifically for connotations like this! The goats in that fairy tale let a friggin' wolf in a flimsy disguise into their house, after all!
Just like I would name an airline Icarus Airways. Or an automobile Phaeton, after the first recorded instance of a teenager who crashed daddy's car. Oh, wait...

An acquisition by Aegis? Sure, though they probably would then have to invest a lot to whip them into shape...

Literally like taking candy from a baby. Something Ytterbium probably done in her previous life.

...while laughing an evil villain laugh! I can easily imagine that! :-D

And we have an Audrey in there.

Dressed of course like in her most famous role, Holly Golightly from Breakfast at Tiffany's!
