Panel 1: In the title panel of this Sunday-style colour comic, Morgan and Barbara stand, or possibly sit, against a black background. Beside them are the words "WEST OF BATHURST" in bright, colourful bubble letters. There are also some flying party streamers and confetti, plus a purple balloon with the words "by Kari Maaren" on it. Morgan looks pensive; Barbara picks up a newspaper.

Morgan: The new year...

Barbara: Well spotted.

Panel 2: Barbara and Morgan are sitting side by side on a couch in the Davies College common room. Barbara is reading the newspaper.

Morgan: I know it's just artificial, culturally imposed symbolism, but I can't help thinking of the new year as a time of potential change.

Panel 3:

Morgan: Here we sit on the cusp of a thousand possibilities. Anything could happen in 2008; old patterns could be swept away entirely in the face of new.

Panel 4:

Morgan: New start. It's hokey, but it resonates.

Panel 5: Morgan looks sidelong at Barbara, who is still reading the newspaper.

Panel 6:

Morgan: We still hate each other passionately, right?

Barbara: Yep.

Panel 7:

Morgan: It's nice to have one thing you can count on.

Barbara: If you don't stop talking to me, I'll hit you with a lamp.

Alt-Text: And it is a heavy, heavy lamp.
