Since we had a week away from the storyline, let’s recap where we’re at:
1. Jeff has let a live raccoon loose in the store after his Guardians of the Galaxy cosplay went terribly awry.
2. The GM is on freakout mode because his boss is supposed to be visiting.
3. Lester is back to being… well, let’s just say he’s out of shape.
4. The store had a number of issues around power outages, fires and steel shutters severing limbs a while back. For the most part, those issues were isolated and hadn’t been happening on a consistent basis… or have they?
Put it all together, and here’s today’s shenanigans.
Side note #1: I LOVE the way Jeff just lets the raccoon go running by by lifting his leg. Manley’s cartooning made me laugh pretty hard.
Side note #2: The district manager is modeled after our friend, reader and Kickstarter supporter Jens Walter. He undoubtedly will be making a few more appearances.
Side note #3: Thanks for all of the love and sharing of last week’s tribute strip- to date, it is our second-highest viewed comic! The reaction from everyone has been very positive, and we appreciate all of you who took time out to let us know that you enjoyed it!
Side note #4: I have no more side notes.
