|At last...we have achieved
I hope there will also be a small extra panel tomorrow. For now, to apologise for my tardiness, I provide a link to these three little drawings I created for my students back when I still thought I had free time. My class had been doing a lot with heroes and monsters, and I wanted to explain how, in my opinion, traitors fit in (most people lump them in with monsters, but the fact that I don't makes everything I say about them rather dependent on the information contained in the cartoons). The chief interest here probably lies in 1) the hero's muscles (I drew muscles!) and 2) the traitor, an actual character of mine named Mor. He is not a WoB character; he belongs to another story I've been developing this year.

|Panel 1: In
the title panel of this Sunday-style colour comic, Barbara is
struggling to lift an enormous mechanical pencil with the words "WEST
OF BATHURST" engraved on it. "BY KARI MAAREN" is there too in teeny
Panel 2: Barbara sits at a table, a laptop open in front of her and a small lamp beside her.
Panel 3: Barbara glares at the laptop.
Panel 4: Barbara is still glaring at the laptop, but now we're watching her from above.
Panel 5: Marie, who is passing, watches Barbara squeeze her eyes shut, grit her teeth, and wave her hands in the air.
Panel 6: As Marie looks over her shoulder, Barbara types the word "The."
Panel 7: Barbara gets up and starts to move away.
Barbara: Well, that's enough for today.
Marie: You certainly wouldn't want to strain yourself.
Alt-Text: Even better is when you deliberately spend six hours on a single footnote that you're pretty sure you're eventually going to delete.
