So I drew this strip, then I started to draw a “Thorn interacting with the lawyer” strip, then I realized — hang on, this is a “summarizing the backstory for a new person” scene. I should hold off on that until I need a “starting a new volume” scene.
…which is very soon, since “Leif in Lockdown” is close to the last storyline in Volume 5. So this is your first taste of what’s going to happen in Volume 6.
More on that later! This year we’re still working to print Volume 4 — all the strips are fully drawn and finished, the only thing we need is the funding.
It sounds as if Thorn has been very careless with you.
I suppose, at least, we don’t have to worry . . .
. . . that he’ll put in all the time and effort it would take to steal you.
Lawyer: Well! It’s the Magical Mister Muscade.
. . . If an official liaison to Sønheim is here, does that mean our whole country wants to sue their country?
Ebony: Absolutely not!
We’re trying to avoid a legal diplomatic incident. . . . So we need some expert counsel on what our options will be, if Sir Thorn here starts one.
