MSSI, MAC Portal, MAC Portal Comic book


Hello Turnstile Blog readers! My name is Miles Derane Duncil II. I’ve been employed at Portable Solutions Group Inc., parent company to Modular Security Systems Inc. (MSSI) and DropBox Inc. for over 12 years. Throughout those years I’ve worked to develop and improve upon our website’s search engine optimization and findability. It’s been part of my job to make our websites easily findable and easily usable for our customers and potential customers.

My job also includes coming up with quality content on a regular and consistent basis. As you can imagine, it can often be a challenge to tell the tale of MSSI in new ways that are optimized to be found on a wide range of search platforms… new ways that will hopefully also be engaging for those visitors to the site.

Recently I’ve been playing with the idea of re-imagining the company’s MAC logo. That evolution of thought is what brought up the idea to develop a comic book to tell the story of the MAC Portal and MSSI.

You see, when I was a kid, like many other kids I enjoyed comic books. I read comic books, talked about comic books with friends, and I even tried to draw a few myself. They were mostly Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle knockoffs, but what are you going to do? I was 13-14 at the time.

Anyway, I guess in a way this is me coming somewhat full circle.

I’m 40 now, and while my hairline may be slowly receding, I still in many ways feel, act, and dress like I’m 14. Fortunately for me, my work environment and the people I work with are super supportive of creative thinking – so here we are…

I hope you enjoy. Stay tuned for part two. 

Thanks again,


P.S. I would like to give a huge THANK YOU to Megan Coffey for her editorial support, positivity, and excitement for this project. I’d also like to thank her, as well as Kevin Harrison and Benny Jordan for being my guinea pigs by sitting for photos in Part 1.
