    Panel 1

    Awakeman and Alamore continue their conversation about the town council, Major Condiment and Library Wizard.


    ALAMORE: So, we kick them out.

    AWAKEMAN: But how?

    ALAMORE: By the book. Legitimately.

    AWAKEMAN (thinking to themself): That’s a relief.

    Panel 2

    AWAKEMAN (off panel): What do you mean?

    ALAMORE (off panel): We hold a secret town meeting and vote them out. Not actually secret, we just “forget” to invite them, and stack the rest of the votes.

    We see a General Notice of the form published in the classifieds section of a newspaper. It reads: “SEEKRUT TOWN MEETING - Sept 31, 7pm. Don’t tell Maj. Condiment or Libr. Wizard. Free refreshments.”

    ALAMORE: Then we just need one more thing…someone to elect!

    Panel 3

    AWAKEMAN: Wh–oh no. Me? No.

    ALAMORE: Who better?

    AWAKEMAN: Anyone!

    ALAMORE: Don’t you care?

    AWAKEMAN: Caring is why I resigned in protest!
