    Panel 2

    Awakeman ponders their phone, which has lit up with a notification, next to the desk with Mac Classic and beneath a high-up shelf hap-hazardously supporting 20 books.

    AWAKEMAN (narrating): I was just an ordinary stick-figure in a mediocre absurdist comic.

    Panel 3

    AWAKEMAN (narrating): I never asked for this.

    Awakeman’s phone screen. On the status bar at the top it displays full signal from the BANANATEL network, the time 9:41, the Wi-Fi indicator, and a roughly half-charged battery. Beneath the status bar is the notification: a message.

    MESSAGE: SCIENCE J: You won’t believe this one weird message!!: I detected an event!!!! 😆
