Indignant Candiru

Saturday, 17 January 2009

Let's see how Lynn wraps up the week; I half-way expect to see one of the reprints that she carelessly spoiled but I could be wrong. We could, for instance, see what howtheduck wants: a lecture on race relations.

What we get is Mike worried about being teased.

Panel 1: It's a few seconds after Lawrence and Mike's little scuffle and Lawrence says that he was just foolin' around an' a scowling Mike didn't hafta get that mad.

Panel 2: He was just teasin' Mike. Deanna probably didn't know what he said. Mike's response is to murmur "Hmppph".

Panel 3: Lawrence reiterates himself by saying that what he said he liked her, she didn't do anything; she prob'ly didn't hear him.

Panel 4: As a group of mutant children laugh in the background, Mike points out that everybody else did.

Summary: Since everything in his life is about appearances, Mike is horrified that people know that he's not what he seems to be.
