It's official: on the evening of Sunday, October 9th,
I completed the 28th comic of the First Two Great WoB Extravaganzas. I was afraid
I wouldn't be able to keep up with the comic-a-day pace; instead, I
have got myself a seven-comic buffer. Since marking has now
begun, I expect I shall now rapidly lose this buffer; however, it's
nice to have. It's interesting how much less of a burden it
is to keep up with the postings when there's a buffer.
There's still pressure, but it's not a "must stay up until
4:00 a.m. to finish tomorrow's panels" kind of pressure.|
Today's comic marks the beginning of the end (of the Extravaganza, not the comic). As of next Monday, WoB will be returning to its old pace. There will be a Hallowe'en header to console you.

|Panel 1: Rahim
and Casey are sitting on Marie's futon. It is some time after we've
last seen Casey; his hair has grown a little, and he looks much better.
He's sitting up and reading a book.|
Rahim: You're being a rash, stubborn idiot.
Casey: I don't need to see a doctor.
Rahim: Of course you do, you...are you listening to me? When you came here--
Casey: I'm fine now. Look: no shaking. Also, I've lost my health card.
Rahim: We can get around that! Casey, I'm not a doctor; I'm not qualified--
Casey: I don't need a doctor! I'm fine!
Panel 4: Barbara and Marie are sitting at Marie's dining-room table. Marie's chin is resting on her fists.
Barbara: This happens a lot?
Marie: At least twice a day for the last two weeks. The entertainment value wore off a while ago.
Alt-Text: Rahim must have a collection of pillows he punches in sequence so as not to wear any of them out too quickly.
