Thanks for reading.
If you follow my Twitter (linked above), you may know that my first attempt
at drawing this gag got accidentally overwritten, and I took it as a sign
that God wanted it drawn in pencil instead of by mouse. Well, though, part of
the reason I started doing it was that it's easier to compose for the space
on the computer than with pencil-to-be-scanned, and with a panel this crowded
this matters. Dunno if God was right.
Let me just reiterate: I hate crowd scenes. Usually I can find a way to fudge them, as I have perhaps ranted before, but in this one the crowd's the gag.
Yes, when I read Monday's Girl Genius my reaction was, "I don't remember who all these people are. There are too many characters." Then, of course, I thought, "Yeah right, who am I to talk?"
