A reader has pointed out the similarity between the third panel and The Third of May 1808: The Execution of the Defenders of Madrid by Francisco Goya. The resemblance is so good that I'm happy to claim inspiration, rather than coincidence. :-)

2016-05-16 Rerun commentary: This is probably the biggest cliffhanger in the aptly named Cliffhangers theme story. It's not resolved for several tantalising strips.

Occasionally I like to have a straight up drama strip, even though this is ostensibly a gag-a-day comic. The appearance of a strip with drama, and no obvious joke, can be a powerful storytelling tool when the audience is used to seeing something funny in every instalment. The main secret is not to do it too often.
