For my money Lady Liberty is going to be gift wrapped as Uncle Sam's brainwashed christmas present and he'll will be too evil/stupid to care or realise she's brainwashed
Why? Because Tats has been harping "in-universe fake news" on in the background about them being a couple still and he's such a cretin that he'll go for the insane symbolism of Lady Liberty as the slave of Uncle Sam
There is absolutely no relation to Tats wanting his ex back (probably in shackles), the concepts of bondage and domination he constantly bangs on about, the fact he constantly projects his mental health issues into his webcomic and the upcoming train wreck soon to be shown. No sirree!
Tats is such a conspiropathic wacko I'm guessing he sees Marxist Communists as dangerous right wing capitalists. Sometimes he's so leftwing he seems to come full circle
I'm looking forward to the train crash too! Since Tats manages them so often I think we should start using a scale!
Ladies and Gentlemen, I present the "Tats scale of unintended storytelling disasters"!
Train wreck - Facepalm Alert
Train wreck and Earthquake - Swerf Alert
Train wreck, Earthquake and Plane Crash - Terf Alert
Train wreck, Earthquake, Plane Crash and Gas Explosion - A Jack Chick
Train wreck, Earthquake, Plane Crash, Gas Explosion and Tsunami - A Full Tats

Or an asteroid impact instead of a tsunami ...
All hail the Sweet Meteor of Death!
All right, so where does this rate on the disaster scale we've established?
I retract my statement of seriousness, this is gonna be pretty boring. The colours are pretty tho so thats it.
I do really like the idea of basically weather-storm feedback on Tats, but in reality its more like he's constantly/continually falling down a flight of stairs. Every once in a while he'll do something to slow his dissent, but then he'll do something that just makes the tumbling more painful and bizarrely fascinating to watch.
"Isn't anyone going to help that poor man??"
(me with a bag of popcorn) "Huh? Oh. Uh, I guess I should...Hey Tats? Do you wanna stop falling?"
Tats: "DON'T CENSOR ME, PATRIARCHAL SCUM!"
"You heard him."

Again this going to be cringey.
This whole storyline hangs on when exactly Tats is going to free her from the hat.
He's so in your face with the message I can seriously imagine him ending it tomorrow with one of the Sisterhood or Auntler stepping in.
If he doesn't though there should be some good cringe ahead!

Well, one possibility is that Sam will become possessed by hat-drone while trying to save Liberty from one she is wearing now. Sorry if it sounds stupid, that's just what I think will happen.
Don't worry, there are no stupid theories, there is only Tats.
Having Sam get possessed by a pimp hat would be interesting at the very least. I think the idea is too good and sensible for Tats to think of and completely undermining his own points on radical feminism about there being no good men, but who knows?
The only consistent thing with his writing is that he always manages to undershoot even the lowest of expectations.
I suspect her release will probably be tied in to the death arc of MMXIX, as itís that time of year. But it wonít happen until sheís been put into at least one sexy outfit and paraded.
However, this is NOT mind control porn. Yes, thereís blank eyes, prostitute makeup and submissive kneeling posture, but itís not hentai, no siree...
Holy crap Tats, at this point I can safely say that just outright becoming a Slaannesh worshiper would be better for your mental health. At least you wouldn't be repressing yourself so damned hard anymore.
On that note, did you guys know some deranged madman on youtube made a bunch of idol videos based around the various races from Warhammer 40K (That's Japan's idols, not stone carvings)? The music actually wasn't too bad. The Necron lady was downright adorable. (My vote for best girl has to go to the Tau representative though. Kimmy is a freaking BAE)
I suspect her release will probably be tied in to the death arc of MMXIX, as itís that time of year.
I'll bet you're right. I suspect that Tats intended to have the Assassinbots and the Reanimated Headless Pimpbot involved in the exit of MMXIX, but that became problematic due to the enigmatic gender of the departing year and to Tats finally realizing the implications of treating fembots as women. (Come to think of it, we haven't seen any fembots for a while, have we? I think they've been erased from history.)
So the misadventures of Lady Liberty will have to serve as a substitute ... somehow.

Well, under better circumstances, this would at least be a promising plot development. An actual named character getting recruited by the pimp? Some actual stakes for the heroes (such as they may be) to worry about? That's a lot more interesting than always having to root for practically anonymous, nearly identical women who don't even get named.
Agreed. This could be good narratively
But it's Tats. At the very least the metaphors will be more screwed than a carpenter's workshop and there will be enough dogma to make the Pope jealous
Finally, I'd bet on at least one trainwreck very soon - namely Number 2) Swerf Alert (almost certainly); with even odds of a 4) Jack Chick (preachy and insane pseudo- moralisation) or 5) A Full Tats straight after (Full on literary mother-[radio edit]-ing cataclsym)
I went for the Machine, Air, Earth, Fire, Water style for the Tats Scale, but yup, perpetually falling down the stairs also suits his storytelling "style"
Please Tats, get a competent editor. It's gotten to the stage that you should be taught in webcomic schools as an example of how not to do it in so many areas
Your Mary Sues come in squads. They have to be rotated as there are too many of them. Your ideaology is outdated, blinkered and delusionaly hypocritical. You've thrown away two fanbases. People have to create graded scales to define how bad your writing is at any given moment in time. Even the parody comics are calling you repetitive, unimaginative and too boring
(Radio Edit)me, Tats I get why you're not writing jokes anymore, it's because you are the joke, and the punchline too

It appears going to Twitter was the right thing to do. His Patreon is rising again. It doesn't really seem like there'd be anything he could do to make it suddenly drop. Just goes to show that if you find a platform big enough you can get people to pay you to say anything.
And his new twitter post is just a coloured comic from a few years ago
Well, of course, people like Tats thrive on Twitter. Maybe he can open a Reddit thread next.
I'm PRAYING he doesn't. The tempation would be way too much.
Re: Sam getting possessed by the pimpbot, I'd give that a likelyhood of basically zero. He's a man, he doesn't need to be possessed by a hat to be evil.
And re: Tats' mental health, it has been worrying me for a while. He's either adopted an ideology where he has to hate himself, or submitted to a situation where he has to pretend to hate himself. I don't know which one would be more damaging on the long run.
A non-exclusive alternative variation on the second explanation: He's not pretending, he's in a D/s relationship.
Paging Dr. Hill, Dr. Hank Hill. We have an ass that needs to be kicked.
Dude, do you REALLY want to make the much beloved Ex of a man in a giant mech into a very public whore? That's the sort of thing that tends to end with a man cut in half from a bastard sword.
If the affronted party in question happens to be feeling merciful, anyways.

"Liberty a fine addition to my stable?" Tats is talking in big words already.
She's going to get freed pretty quickly now I think.
