Silly Susan! That's not how you abridge something. That wasn't at all a parody of a popular anime! And not a single internet meme, pop culture reference, or Lady Gaga song parody. For shame.
As I create these latest comics, I'm stuck playing a game known as "dance around the redundant recaps". I win if the characters convey the information they need to each other without driving us mad with information we already know. I think I'm doing okay? I managed to squeeze Susan's recap of recent comics into two panels, and it could have been one if I hadn't decided that Elliot's face should be shown.
