Exhibition: Prelude / ( 12 )
At first I just had this idea of Gabriel increasing the volume (obviously with a mirror system and using the keyhole, so infra red totally like absolutely works through a wall...) to disable Jaune and Barbera for a small 4-panel strip. But I rarely end up drawing those and by the time I come around, they extend and i cannot really get them to be snappy and funny... Since the last chapter ended on the Lady promising Barbera that Gabriel will definitely soon be trying something on them - here it is. Also the whole first half of the chapter is due to the editor, Brian, asking me, how the last chapter hadn t affected the characters behavior towards each other. I sometimes fall into that trap. I did not write the chapters in chronological order so sometimes I use the archetypes of the Characters rather than their actual current status. For the time being, Jaune and Barbera are becoming buddies in recreational activities and Gabriel is very anti, which will not change any time soon - but have various levels of intensity. L is too busy with her preparations to mold them into the shape she needs.
So - yeah, welcome to the next chapter - Exhibition. An alternative title with the exact same double meaning could have been The Junk. hur dur dur
