Panel 1: In the title panel of this Sunday-style colour comic, the words "West of Bathurst by Kari Maaren" separate Sara from a young white woman in a pink dress. Sara is aiming guns at the woman, who is throwing heart-shaped confetti everywhere.

Panel 2: In the Davies College basement, Marie runs into Sara, who is carrying a huge heart-shaped box of chocolate with the word "Love" on it in cursive.

Marie: Whoa. Where'd that come from?

Sara: It's my prize for winning the Murder Game.

Panel 3:

Marie: ...Wait. Seriously?

Sara nods.

Panel 4: They begin to walk along together.

Marie: Well, I guess it makes sense. Symbolically, the catharthis of simulated murder ends in love.

Panel 5:

Marie: The huge heart counteracts any community-wide belief that the game's winner is, in fact, heartless. It works.

Panel 6: They walk along silently for a bit.

Panel 7:

Sara: Or maybe it was just on sale.

Marie: That's more likely.

Alt-Text: The fact that the Murder Game tends to take place either close to or simultaneously with Valentine's Day does please me quite a lot.
