I apologise for the delay; I haven't had much time because of the whole travelling-halfway-across-the-country thing. Also, my niece keeps wanting to play with my pen tablet. I have, however, finally finished the strip, just in time to wish you all a Merry Christmas and/or celebration of your choice (as the well-meaning Dean cries on Community, "Merry Happy!"). I must now go to sleep, as I have little doubt that said niece will be up at six sharp, making loud and joyful noises.

The thousandth-comic celebration panel now has a link on the Miscellaneous page.

Panel 1: In the title panel of this Sunday-style colour comic, Marie is still handcuffed to a bathroom cupboard. Evil Marie sits on the counter, strumming a ukulele. In the mirror, we see the words "West of Bathurst by Kari Maaren"...backwards, of course.

Panel 2: Marie rummages in a drawer as Evil Marie plays the ukulele.

Evil Marie [sings]: Silent night! Holy night!

Panel 3:
Marie finds a nail file.

Evil Marie [sings]: Trapped by wrist? That's not right.

Panel 4:

Evil Marie [sings]: Casey Mulligan panicked and ran,

Panel 5: Marie attempts to pick the handcuffs with the file.

Evil Marie [sings]: Leaving Marie all chained up in the can.

Panel 6: Marie looks sidelong at Evil Marie.

Evil Marie [sings]: Casey's plan makes no sense!

Panel 7:

Evil Marie [sings]: Casey's plan makes no sense.

Marie: I am never imagining you with a ukulele again.

Alt-Text: To give Evil Marie her due, she does sum up the situation quite succinctly here.
