What are they going to do? Turn them into background characters on 'The Walking Dead'?

To show the viewers who they are facing against more clearly? Makes sense to me.

Because some of us are wearing glasses?

My thought was that They turned off whatever disguise tech They were using -- it's obvious to Them that the gang already knows, so why bother/make their normal disguises known?

Of course, I'm waiting for the other shoe. "Resources" sounds ominous, but wonder if it will just be "Human Resources." Art, Pip, and Kat get to be on a reality TV show, with editing to keep them from revealing the truth.

Because the aliens need to be clearly identified for the reader's convenience (and sanity). JJ is just taking it as read that we, from the omniscient narrator's point of view, are immune to their disguise technology.

In my mind, two points arise from this strip:

1) The aliens don't know why Cameron is so annoyed with them; this lends weight to my theory that they're essentially benign (if tasteless when it comes to entertainment) and Cameron is using them as an excuse for a bit of corporate sabotage;

2) 'Resources'? Ooh! Our intrepid heroes are about to become the next stars of Britain's Got Talent!

Just a P.S.:

Quoth Kat:
Or at least just kill the penguin!
You tell 'em girl!

Alien: GOD DAMMIT! WHAT DID WE EVER DO TO PISS THAT GUY OFF?(Okay the Aliens are evil right? I mean actually Apocaliptic evil right? No condemned us to watch crappy TV shows evil?)

Kat: OR AT LEAST, JUST KILL THE PENGUIN.

I get the feeling these guys are just trying to make an honest living in the entertainment business and are concealing their identities to prevent "normal" people from flipping the fuck out.

Then again, I could be wrong.

This has also been my theory, and it seems like we've both been proven right.
That is, unless the aliens have a completely different moral compass than humans, where attempting to destroy an intelligent(?) species isn't anything to get worked up over (though admittedly that could both be a possibility and fairly neat plot twist).

2) 'Resources'? Ooh! Our intrepid heroes are about to become the next stars of Britain's Got Talent!
That...doesn't sound very benign to me Crying or Very sad

This may be digging a bit, but that last line is exactly what Smiling Jack said to the group when he tried to launch a satellite through their kitchen... Might be a coincidence, though....

What did they ever do to piss off Cameron? "They live". (Apologies if the reference has already been referenced...)
