Yeah, how did you think he managed to get those lightning bolts to flash whenever he said his name? (The pull-chain in panel 4 is a bit of a giveaway ... maybe he can rig up some kind of remote?)
It didn't actually take that long to draw this episode ... one I found time to sit down and draw. Holiday weekends mean lots of family commitments. And after this week, I think I'll be ready to be committed.
You know, it gets tiring writing dialog that just goes, "Hi, I'm A ... Hi, I'm B", so I'll just tell you that Prof. Odious wife is named January (Jan for short), and the boys are Cameron (older) and Melvin (younger). A brownie point to you if you can spot the obvious joke.
You think this is a lot of new characters at once? Wait 'til next time when the all the neighbors arrive.
