Panel 1: In the clearly symbolic title panel of this Sunday-style colour comic, Marie peeks around a wall at Casey, who is talking on his phone as he stands on a diving board extending out over a lava pit. Rahim is watching Marie, puzzled. In the seething lava are the words "West of Bathurst by Kari Maaren."

Panel 2: Back in reality, Marie is in the Davies College basement, hiding behind a wall, listening to Casey talk on the phone. Rahim approaches Marie.

Panel 3:


Marie: Casey's talking to his mom.

Panel 4:

Rahim: And this warrants spying?

Marie: Have you never heard Casey talk to his mom?

Panel 5:

Rahim: I don't see why--

Marie: Listen.

Panel 6:

Casey [into the phone]: You can't install a diving board. Because the lava will obliterate it, that's why! Look...have you thought of adding spikes instead? No, the ones with the hooked points and the poison.

Panel 7:

Rahim: "That was weird" seems like such an inadequate response.

Marie [throws up her hands]: And you didn't even catch the bit about the tadpoles.

Alt-Text: Then there was the part when the giant squid erupted out of the pho--er, nothing.
