Panel 1: In the title panel of this Sunday-style colour comic, Marie looks through a gap between the books on a library bookshelf. On the spine of one of the books are the words "West of Bathurst" and "Kari Maaren."

Panel 2: Marie, smiling cheerily, approaches Barbara. Marie is wearing a backpack and holding a piece of paper in her hand.

Marie: Behold: the list of books I went to find at Robarts Library today.

Panel 3: She shows Barbara the list.

Marie: Note that there are twenty-six items on this list. Note that each is marked as available.

Panel 4:

Note that I double-checked to make sure the volumes in question were, in fact, at Robarts and not one of the numerous other university libraries.

Panel 5: Marie shrugs off her backpack and reaches into it.

Marie: Behold: the books I was actually able to find at Robarts Library today.

Panel 6: Marie holds up two very small books.

Panel 7:

Barbara: You seem oddly frustrated.

Marie [loudly, to the universe in general]: You owe me six hours of my life back, library of doom!

Alt-Text: Yes, this comic is based on many, many, MANY true stories.
