|Panel 1: In
the title panel of this colour comic, Barbara, standing against a plain
yellow background, angrily throws many pieces of paper into the air as
Marie, who is looking at her sidelong, edges into the panel. Most of
the papers have illegible writing on them, but six feature words:
"WEST," "OF," "BATHURST," "by," "Kari," and "Maaren."|
Panel 2: Barbara and Marie stand together against the same background as before.
Marie: Everything okay?
Barbara: I just found out that my evil supervisor has gone to Russia for a year...without telling me! What am I supposed to do now?
Barbara: You'd think he could have, you know, informed his sixth-year grad student about this...but nooo. I had to hear it from a random undergraduate!
Panel 5: Casey, passing by in the distance, glances over towards Barbara and Marie.
Barbara: Apparently, I get to spend the entire next year working entirely on my own. I could be ready to submit before he's back! Dr. Freaking Asmoday is a devil from freaking Hell!
Casey: Dr. Asmoday? You know him? He's an old friend of my family.
Panel 7: Barbara thrusts a fist into the air in vindication.
Barbara: Confirmed! Confirmed by Satan himself!
Marie: Okay. I'm sorry, Casey, but you walked right into this one.
Alt-Text: Yes, MOST supervisors are more considerate than this, and VERY FEW of them are actually devils from freaking hell.
