New Sponsor

We have decided to proactively create a sponsorship relationship with Diet Coke, for both humanitarian and carbonation reasons alike. And in deference to this new symbiosis, Strip 4 is now being utilized as a tool to demonstrate our commitment to brand loyalty over all other concerns. 

But if for some reason Diet Coke objects to this unilateral agreement (becomes aware of its existence), they could either:

A) try to sever all ties with the Hangmen Universe through a long and arduous court battle where both sides are left bloody and beaten; or

B) just send a little hush money over this way to quench my thirst for good.

Your move Coca Cola Corporation,
