West of Bathurst 1351

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


Hi, guys.  I know this is very, very late, and I apologise.  My goal is to catch up by this weekend (as I'm back to a thrice-a-week schedule...theoretically, at least).  This has been a crazy, busy, energy-draining week from hell.  Also, classes start again tomorrow (technically today, but I don't teach on Tuesdays this term).  By next Monday, I hope to be back on track.

The results of Summer Contest #10, as well as the results of the whole string of contests together, will be posted whenever I get Monday's comic up.  With luck, that will happen either very late tonight or tomorrow evening (likely tomorrow evening).  I teach for six hours on Wednesdays, so there won't be all that much time to work on the comic during the day, even with the introductory classes being short ones.

Panel 1: In the title panel of this Sunday-style colour comic, Davies alumni Elisa and Athar smirk at a clapboard bearing the words "West of Bathurst by Kari Maaren."

Panel 2: Elisa and Athar speak directly to the camera that is filming them.

Elisa: Hi...I'm Elisa.

Athar: And I'm Athar.

Elisa: We're Davies alumni.

Athar: Welcome to the college.

Panel 3:

Elisa: We've actually been banned from making any more of these videos.

Athar: No one will tell us why.

Panel 4:

Elisa: The last time someone banned us from something, we ended up at the top of the Davies bell tower with paintball guns.

Athar: And that wasn't even what we'd been banned from.

Panel 5:

Elisa: At any rate, if you're new, you should probably fear us.

Athar: We're currently on the other side of the country, but still.

Panel 6:

Elisa: You should also be aware that Davies is a cult.

Athar: Which is why there are robes and Latin graces. Cults like those.

Panel 7:

Elisa: I was thinking more of that time in the quad with the Necronomicon.

Athar: Shh! They're always watching.

Panel 8:

Elisa: Welcome to Davies, which is not evil in any way.

Athar: Don't ever eat the chicken wings.

Panel 9: Marie, Frankie, and Baldwin are watching all this on a tablet. Barbara pokes her head--and a stake--into the panel.

Frankie: They must be stopped.

Barbara: You can borrow my stake.

Alt-Text: Then there was the time we opened the Hellmouth in the library, and Willow had to do this spell--no, wait, that was an episode of _Buffy the Vampire Slayer_.
