An early update for my loyal readers.
“Venetian blind closing” is a very difficult action to convey without motion. I don’t think this works. Incidentally, you’ll also notice a mistake between the last page and this one: on the previous page the blind was closed.
I’m going to try to put up next Tuesday’s page on Christmas instead as a little treat for all of you. It will have villains! In the event it’s not ready in time, I will post something else. See you then!
Soundtrack for Panel 2:
Well, so much for selling it MISB on eBay.

With the appearance of Stephenson, the gang’s all here (except Kindler, obviously).
Astor’s hat is a genuine pre-war Bross and Clackwell, absolutely irreplaceable.
The botanical side of me really enjoys doing pages like this one. In fact, maybe I’ll turn Sunrise into a comic about people who explore the jungle, just so I can draw the local flora. (I kind of missed a bet with Yucateca. I could have drawn a lot more interesting foliage, but laziness took precedence. I’m trying harder now.)
