Again, sorry for the delay. I tried to finish last night, but when I dozed off and almost fell out of my chair thrice in five minutes, I felt it would be prudent to give up.

Panel 1: In the title panel of this Sunday-style colour comic, Marie glares over an open book entitled West of Bathurst (by Kari Maaren).

Panel 2: Marie is sitting in her favourite basement nook, reading. Barbara appears out of nowhere.

Barbara: GET UP!

Panel 3: Barbara pulls Marie off the couch.

Barbara: It's a beautiful day! It is not a day for basements! I shall burn all your books! Get up!

Panel 4: Barbara shoves Marie up the stairs.

Barbara: Move it, Dumont! On the double! Up the stairs to freedom!

Panel 5: Barbara ushers Marie through a door.

Barbara: Onwards and upwards! Narnia is a backwards onion! Go! Go! Go!

Panel 6: They stop for a moment.

Marie: what?

Barbara: I don't know; I hadn't thought that far ahead.

Panel 7: Marie heads back towards the basement.

When you figure it out, I'll be downstairs.

Barbara:'re supposed to be paralysed by my insanity.

Alt-Text: It's not quite the same thing, but you've got to wonder how many princes in fairy tales go through the whole heady princess-rescue thing, then pause and go, "Er, yeah. Er, sorry...only we're five hundred miles from civilization, and I've got another princess to rescue on Thursday. Do you think you can get home from here all right?"
