Hey guys, sorry for the slightly late post.
Pages like this remind me why I decided to tell stories in webcomic form. I really love this one.
I'm not sure if anyone remembers this page, but obscure callbacks really tie things together sometimes. And raise more questions on occasion.
The hired henchmen of evil villains should never expect a reward from their boss. They usually "reward" you by killing you, or turning you into a grotesque monster, with the logic of, "well, I said I'd give you more power; I never said HOW."
