I've cut out the bit with the messenger. Let's just assume that Mackers saw the moving trees over a parapet. Or that he got a text. Or... Look, shiny keys! Shiny keys!
Or that Lich Barrister couldn't figure out how to shoehorn his text in there without making the comic 90% text and 10% actual scenes! :D
Gin is also an Australian informal term for a female aborigine. We seem to get a lot of noisy drunken ones and their aboriginal male counterparts going past our place, and we get the police to sort out the problem ones. :)
I am trying to keep from making it 90% text and 10% image... Awfully tricky when you get to the good or important parts.
Saturday's strip will be a little late; parenting went into extra innings tonight, and image capture started about four hours later than I'd hoped. Lots of images taken; I'm set for all by the final scene now.
