John Madden's Shadow Puppet Theater


Conspiracy buffs take note: Crandal is giving Stark a top secret Masonic handshake. ...Well, sure, you don't recognize it. You've never seen the real handshake. Until now. Sadly, this means I'm now obligated to track every single one of you down and kill you. Kindly put all your affairs in order.

(I'm sorry. Is that rude, threatening to kill my entire audience? It's rude, isn't it? I'm sorry.)

Or maybe Crandal's going to pull some kind of awesome martial arts move and jab one of Stark's pressure points, causing him to crap his pants right then and there. (Because "the till" is their little code name for Crandal's secretary/mistress.)

Let's summarize this one panel's dialogue.

Ben: They caught you stealing, too?
Tony: Do you have any idea what they want us for?

Ooh. And Benny's using the double-fingered finger gun on Tony. You just know he's trouble. Or he has a truckload of wax to clean out of his ear.

"Blockade! Blockade Boy! The captain of the H.M.S. Exquisite and purveyor of an eponymous blog -- here?"

Expository dialogue at its most... expository. A regular Shakespeare, that Conway.

Anonymous: Or maybe those are the fingers Crandal had in "the till."

Gyuss Baaltar: Shoutout! Yay! Thanks, buddy!

Bill S.: Or as I like to think of Young Conway's writing, "suppository dialog."
