Man, I can’t tell you how long it took to get that first panel “just right”. Hopefully, it looks just like Brad’s flunky (or would that be “henchman”?) is tearing the first panel right off the web page – that’s what I was going for (even included a bit of HTML code on the backside of the panel (although it might be hard to see).

But speaking of Brad, since I had a pun as the punchline in Wednesday’s strip, I thought it was only appropriate if the king of all web comic puns would be very protective of his “title” – hence, his appearance. And since he’s “the king”, it made even more sense to dress him in the proper attire – crown included.

Hope you don’t mind, Brad.
