This here is Part One in a three-part display of the runners-up in the Summer T-Shirt Contest. Today belongs to Ed Wells, who, almost a week after the contest had ended, was still sending installments of the following photo story.

Narbonic has inspired some truly amazing feats of creativity over the years, virtually none of them from me. That's Ed Wells himself, of course, in a costume unsurprisingly of his own devising. At Christmas, he presented me with my very own pair of glasses made from used CD-ROMs. Please note that they come with attached oversized floaty eyebrows. I really like the detail of the guts splayed out on the pavement in the second photo.

The Heavenly Greeter is played by Ed's daughter, Kelly, a very smart person who teaches in third-world countries and is basically a superior type of human being such as you might imagine Artie hanging out with, if he's lucky. Bill Clinton is played by himself. I don't know the identity of the luckless souls recruited to examine Ed/Dave during his passage to the Beyond, or wherever he's going.

Ed Wells (andieswell) says: Those lucky souls were a librarian and a security guard at the Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh, where I lived at the time.
Leon Arnott (l) says: Now what is going on in panel 7?
Bo Lindbergh (blgl) says: You lived in the library? Cool!
Aaron Shades (prof_tinker) says:

Heaven sounds. . . . unheavenly to me.

Bad sign, huh. I'd be kicked out in a week. Not that I's pass the Holy Barcode Test. @#$!

So, God has an evil sense of humor.

I was 99.9% certain, but good to have proof. 

Andy Holloway (garran) says: Oh, 'checked out'. I get it.
Ed Wells (andieswell) says:

Panel 7 shows the Nerd-soul being drawn through a tunnel to a portal of light. You can find another perspective in the image here:

Panels 7-10 were taken at a picturesque Pittsburgh sewer outfall. Note the Richardsonian Romanesque stonework, rare in this age of concrete and pipe. It would make an excellent lair except for the damp floors and occasional stormwater surges and sewage overflows.
