Awakeman! #29: Medal
Awakeman! No. 29.
Awakeman and Alamore are still talking in the park.
AWAKEMAN: I have a lot of important projects on at the moment, Alamore.
ALAMORE: Like what? Finding some stupid painting?
AWAKEMAN: OK, touché.
ALAMORE: This is much more important to everybody!

The panel shows Major Condiment and Library Wizard. Major condiment is wearing a military-style cap and jacket with epaulettes, and a prominent medal pinned on his right. Library Wizard is wearing a pointy hat and signature scruffy cloak.
ALAMORE (continuing): But it was they who were the root cause of all the misery, with their bean-counting, bureaucratic red tape stubbornness. They don’t understand the town folk at all!
