  • Sorry for the tardiness; the colour comics really do take an inordinate amount of time to complete. This comic ends the Fourth Great WoB Extravaganza; as of Monday, we'll be returning to our regular schedule (MWF and every second S).

    I've uploaded two more videos, so check them out here. As well, I had a charming Twitter conversation with Toronto Batman after I posted the link to the song about him. Check it out.

    Panel 1: In the title panel of this Sunday-style colour comic, Marie, Evil Marie, and Casey are in a park. Casey has been beat up. Marie helps him rise. They are standing beside a sign bearing the name of the park, though it is obscured by a poster reading "West of Bathurst." A much smaller poster on the sign reads "by Kari Maaren."

    Marie: About two blocks from here, we can take a bus that'll take us downtown.

    Casey: I...have tokens somewhere.

    Panel 2: They are walking through the park.

    Marie: You need to go to the hospital.

    Casey: No.

    Panel 3:

    Marie: Casey--

    Casey: Just forget it. How'd you find me, anyway?

    Panel 4:

    There were some women on a bus. And hair. And--

    Casey: Three women?

    Panel 5:

    Marie: Yes.

    Casey: Oh, fun. As if there weren't enough clashing motifs already.

    Panel 6:

    Marie: What are you talking about?

    Casey: I'm stuck at the centre of a chaotic swirl of stories. They're all connected, except when they're not. You keep mucking them up.

    Panel 7:

    Evil Marie: You still realise he can see me, right?

    Casey and Marie [angrily]: Not now, Evil Marie!

    Alt-Text: Come on, guys; all she wants is for you to discuss her non-existence. Is that too much to ask?
