Panel 1: In the title panel of this Sunday-style colour comic, Steve stares in horror at several people who are walking straight at him: Barbara (carrying an accordion), Wendy (hands on her hips), a black-haired white woman (holding a cell phone), a black-haired brown man (with a banjo string), and someone (mostly unseen) waving a recorder. Marie is watching all this go down. The words "West," "of," "Bathurst," "by," "Kari," and "Maaren" are scattered throughout the panel.

Panel 2: Steve and Marie are sitting on the puffy couch in the Davies College Puffy Couch Room.

Steve: You haven't been around as much this year.

Marie: I've deal with.

Panel 3:

Steve: Ah.

Marie: Doesn't matter. How's it going with your band?

Steve: Wellll...

Panel 4:

Steve: Technically, I'm at a rehearsal right now.

Marie: That seems unlikely.

Steve: In the chapel.

Marie [points]: Which is over there.

Panel 5: A blonde white woman and the man from the title panel approach.

Steve: Yep.

Woman 1: Steve! Claire still says she won't sing back-up.

Man 1: And Janet broke another banjo string.

Panel 6: Several more people, including Barbara, Wendy, and the woman from the title panel, turn up.

Woman 2: Tom just texted to say he forgot about the rehearsal. Also, he's in Sarnia.

I don't like this song; can we do something bouncier?

Barbara: There may be a spider in my accordion.

Panel 7:

Steve: Too many cooks? Child's play. Too many musicians...

Woman 3 [to Steve]: James stormed out; there may be room for you now.

Alt-Text: Of course, the first challenge is finding a time for all of them to meet together in a room. I sort of suspect this conversation is taking place at midnight on a Sunday.
