I have done a guest comic over at Rock, Paper, Cynic, an awesome webcomic about turtles, philosophy, and occasionally puns. Those of you who have received your copies of the West of Bathurst book may recognise the comic's author, Peter Chiykowski, as the creator of one of the guest comics produced for that mighty tome. Peter chose to focus his guest comic on one of his few recurring characters, the Pun Detective. Now, I love the Pun Detective with all my heart, which is strange, as I do not cope well with puns. Perhaps my pun antipathy is due to my natural inclination to pun, against which I struggle daily. At any rate, I have also focused on the Pun Detective in my guest spot. I tried to make the comic into a hybrid of my style and Peter's; I can't draw characters Peter's way, but the font, shading, and backgrounds are closer to what Peter usually does than they are to what I usually do.

Panel 1: Rose and Maggie, standing in identical poses with their white canes out in front of them, look to the right as a voice calls out to them from somewhere in the park.

Voice: Rose? You here?

Panel 2: Iz comes into view. He gazes at Rose and Maggie, still standing side by side.

Iz: Who's that? Wait a that Maggie?

Panel 3: Rose and Maggie exchange glances.

Iz: You're hanging out with a mysterious blind lady who probably once had hair the same colour as yours?

Panel 4:

Iz: She's totally your long-lost aunt!

Rose and Maggie: Totally.
