    Thanks Willy007. That cartoon had everything! Even the flying Police trashcans.

    When one thinks of gadget-loaded cars, one does have to wonder about ejector seats :-). There might be more than one way out of this. I can’t see the strip doing a graphic murder-suicide, even for villains like these.

    She knew she wasn’t going to jump over a large lake, so why hit the Nitro? I’m betting it’s because she WANTED to break through the ice, because the car is rigged for underwater work. Those faces yesterday didn’t look terrified. He looked shocked but the landing, and she looked determined. Neither of them looked like they were looking at Davy Jones’ locker.

    I think Lena is going to turn out a bit special. A hyena is a pretty grim hunk of feliform. They’ve been known to drive off lionesses in the wild, and they have a pretty bad attitude to people, even those they “know”. There is no such thing as a domesticated hyena.

    I was wondering whether Sprocket had time to get dressed after cutting short her shower, but if you look closely it seems she did.
    Also, it occurs to me there is a BIG age gap between these two siblings. Not impossible of course.

    I think the sepia effect is to indicate that the audience are in very low light compared to the stage.
    Glad to see Mary hasn’t been “used up” as a guest yet. Vitamin looks like this part was written for him. Perhaps it was; he’s old enough. :-)

    Can’t help thinking Sam reckons he’ll catch a bullet before he catches cancer, so he may as well smoke.

    Is Tracy perhaps thinking that these two are just innocent stooges for the the (deceased) actor guy? They are positioning themselves as middlemen, giving them a degree of plausible deniability. At least until Lena’s lunch turns up.

    Vitamin is even mentioned in the famous 1945 Dick Tracy in B Flat. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YNkOyQwOrr4

    Sprocket is drawn really well, to get the impression of “ugly but still sexy”. Well done.
