I think he just wants to stem the bleeding from his Patreon, but he doesn't really know how or what direction the comic needs to go in. It's like what Mr. Miyagi says from "The Karate Kid".
You were bound to fail financially with rad fem views, Tatsuya. I thought the comic about you ripping up the contract where you sold your soul was the point and that you understood that. I thought you were making a stand of some kind. You have come this far already. You might as well ride this hurricane through to the end and just go balls to the wall with it.
Isn't it funny that the comic isn't the most entertaining aspect, but how the people who read it react? There is only one forum that talks about the comic positively and it is DEAD. Meanwhile, the places that do talk about it with a critical eye seem to be thriving.
That alone should tell Tatsuya that it might be time to re-strategize.

I really like how Sinfest lends itself perfectly to parody Tats's own behaviour through Pettyfest. This one seems relevant to your post!
The authors are really on point!
Its strips like this that make me want to slap my head... and then slap his.
So how long does it take until Tats went back to the other characters?
Because I'm not even interested in the hombie shenanigans, I wanna see how the terrorists, sad workers, and demon family tree are gonna do. Unless Tats will find a way to interconnect this plotpoint theres no reason for it to be filler.

About a year on average
For Tats, this current nonsense is now the point of Sinfail
Oh this probably isn't gonna change until well after next January. I'm willing to bet this little janebie is going to get "special" attention from Ms. New Year, with maybe a small nod to the other characters for some pretentious saturnalia wishes.
Uh oh Pimpguy with a scarf is here
Not that I'm complaining, but the Patreon drop this week is kind of weird. He lost three supporters just today, and he hasn't done anything specific to piss people off. I mean, other than being preachy and incoherent and incapable of sticking to a story for more than a week before he gets bored.
Tats must really have a hard-on for bad boys with long goatees. He draws them almost as often as he does hookers, strippers, and skimpily dressed handmaids.
I call lazy design.
3x I agree. It does seem kind of weird that nothing particularly offensive happened. It probably had something more to do with the fact that they stopped reading and just let the Patreon membership run its course. After looking at the Patreon graph I think I am right on that. On October of last year the Patreon increased by three and on the same day this year it decreased by three.
Tatsuya Ishida, self aware SWERF and general terrible person, is going to draw an interaction between a pimp and a Strong Female Character.
It should be fairly straightforward to guess what is going to happen, but Tats has a well-known track record of subverting even the lowest expectations.
So place your bets, people! What is the pimp going to do and what is the zombie's reaction going to be?
Mr Pimp man will try to hypnotise her (possible) but it doesnt work, then she spouts random nonsense and Pimp drones attacks but she dodges, after that someone (either the sisterhood, or ms New year) will interrupt and zombie girl runs away to find refuge, while Pimp guy is injured or letting the pimp drones to chase after her.
2x My wife said that if he is an actual pimp, he would smack her. I would agree. But this is Tatsuya we are talking about. Surely he wouldn't use women as an emotional manipulaitve plot device...
Sorry, I couldn't keep a straight face. You have two votes down for good ol' fashioned backhand to the mouth.
However, seeing that it IS Tatsuya, he is probably going to do the exact same thing the devil did to Blue when she goofed up or when Amber disobeyed a DIRECT order from him. "You show spunk and rebelliousness! PROMOTIONS ALL AROUND! But be aware! MY KINDNESS IS A MASTER PLOT THAT WILL NEVER REACH FRUITION! MWA HA HA HA HA!"
"You controlled the pimpbot?! Impossible! That means you are the pimp now, and I am undone!"
Hoembie will then proceed to Moses the handmaids to siterhood's hideout.

GenderPimp will raise his cane and point it at her. Lightning bolts will issue forth, and will target the bar code on her neck.
But is it loaded?
Just for funsies: He opens his mouth to say something, she knees him in the crotch and storms off as he's laying on the ground.
Just to add my guess to the pile: The zombie is going to go for some kind of "strong powerful womyn" speech and the pimp lets her wander off without issue.
I think the pimp will reveal that he's a lesbian and a radical feminist working undercover to undermine the woke patriarchy, and then they will ride off into the sunset and live happily ever after.
I just realized than in less than a month Tats aborted at least two plots: The woke drones and Xanthe's Halloween fever. Not that they were relevant or made sense, but damn.
It'll be very interesting if Tats aborts the Reanimated Headless Pimpbot Arc and/or the Death Comes for MMXIX Arc.
UPDATE: Given that the Gregorian calendar has been stable for a couple of centuries, it's possible that Tats has noticed that Halloween comes around every year at about this time. So it's plausible that Tats prepared the Halloween strips well ahead of time ... and then had to use them earlier than he expected to fill the gap created by aborting an earlier plot arc ... specifically the Satan, Li'l Evil, Lilith, and Hekate Arc, which ended quite abruptly without adequate resolution. If that's the case, then why did Tats abort that arc?
On the other hand, maybe he had some additional ideas for the current plot arc — such as it is — and ended the Halloween arc early to make room to expand the Zombie Handmaid Arc.
I have to admit I don't see the point of the Zombie Handmaid Arc ... if there is one.

No shame at all, pretty funny by a bit.
She falls back into line.
Alright. I'm not gonna lie. That was funny.
Pimp, please. The pattern isn't hard to figure out.
It's the syphilitic one who is falling apart from rot and whose mind has been gone for a long time now.
She tried to have sex with a child for a free cupcake and was hanging from a pole laughing like a maniac right next to the exploding robo pimp hat. It's time for the Old Yeller treatment!
If Tats isn't going to explain why she looks like a zombie I'm going to find my own explanation, dammit!
Also: Today's comic is perfectly exploitable for Pettyfest. I'm looking forward to see what the authors come up with!
