|Panel 1: In the title panel of this Sunday-style colour comic, Casey holds a flower. The pollen blowing away from the flower spells out "West of Bathurst by Kari Maaren." Barbara gasps and holds up a hand to ward off the pollen.|
Panel 2: Casey and Barbara stand outside, near a bush. Barbara has a Kleenex held up to her nose.
Casey: What a beautiful day.
Barbara [angrily]: Beautiful?
Barbara [more angrily]: Beautiful?
Barbara [even more angrily]: Beautiful?
Panel 7: Barbara is gone. Steve comes up beside Casey.
Steve: Allergy season has started.
Casey [stares after Barbara]: You don't say.
Alt-Text: Yes, it's another colour comic about allergies. You may understand why if I reveal that this week, it took me several days to realise that I did, in fact, have a violent cold, and not simply my usual allergic reaction to everything green and growing.
