West of Bathurst 966

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

Well, folks, this is it: the final comic in the First Two Great WoB Extravaganzas. Yes, I do realise that Casey has revealed almost nothing, but at least he's back. It is sad that Marie hasn't punched him yet. They're still living in the same apartment, however, so you never know.

As of tomorrow, we'll be back to our regular MWF (+ every second S) schedule. This has been fun, but I need to mark things now.

Panel 1: In the title panel of this Sunday-style colour comic, Casey stands at the edge of a cliff, gazing out over the abyss. Marie stands some distance behind him and watches him. The words "West of Bathurst" are spelled out in the clouds; "by Kari Maaren" appears below in cursive.

Panel 2: In Marie's apartment, Casey has fallen asleep on the futon while reading a book. Marie stands and looks down at him.

Panel 3: As Marie draws a blanket over Casey, Evil Marie appears.

Evil Marie: What are you gonna do? He can't stay here forever.

Marie: I know. It's just...

Panel 4: They move away from the futon.

He's got nothing. No I.D., no money, no job. Baldwin's got rid of most of his old stuff.

Evil Marie: Call his mom?

Panel 5: They sit down at the dining-room table.

Marie: You know what? I don't think she exists. I think he was making up all those conversations about tentacles just to mess with us.

Panel 6:

Marie: He's completely alone.

Evil Marie: So are you.

Panel 7:

Marie: I'm completely alone in a much less mysterious and frightening way.

Evil Marie: Eh...details.

Alt-Text: Then again, maybe he's just a sponger.
