West of Bathurst 960

Link to first comic    Link to previous comic     Link to next comic     Link to last comic

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.

Panel 2:

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.

Panel 3:

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.
