    Panel 1: In the title panel of this Sunday-style colour comic, Marie stands in a room with green walls and talks to a middle-aged woman with curly black hair. The title, in red block letters, reads: "West of Bathurst by Kari Maaren."

    Woman: I've got coffee, vodka, and pomegranate juice.

    Marie: thanks.

    Panel 2: In the mysterious taxidermy shop, Tartarus Taxidermy, Marie sits at a table with the woman.

    Marie: What were we doing here?

    Woman: Oh, you know.

    Panel 3:

    Marie: No, I don't; I've forgotten everything.

    Woman: Well, that's just not true.

    Panel 4:

    Marie: Just not...!

    Woman: If you've made it back here alone, the others may be in trouble. I wish you would say.

    Panel 5: The woman gets up and hands Marie a white plastic bag filled with things.

    Woman: Anyway, here's some stuff to help you out. As you know, it'll all come in useful eventually.

    Panel 6: Marie, now standing, pulls what looks like an old-fashioned spindle out of the bag. The woman herds her towards the door.

    Marie: Is this a drop spind--

    Woman: It was nice to meet you, but you're leaving now. Don't look back!

    Panel 7: Marie and Evil Marie stand outside the closed door of Tartarus Taxidermy.

    Marie: Why is no one sane at Christmas?

    Evil Marie: You expect far too much of this holiday.

    Alt-Text: I think it would be kind of neat to meet a mysterious taxidermist and listen to her spout incomprehensible nonsense in the wee hours of Christmas morning.
