Huh, that's weird. After the nightmare that was yesterday's page, this one came together like a breeze. I mean, it's still late, but that's just 'cos I got started late 'cos I was wrapping stuff last night. As far as actually drawing the thing went, this was super easy. Admittedly, I did have to reconceive the second panel, originally it was supposed to be more of an overhead angle where you could actually see the ring in the distance behind Frank, but that wouldn't been to much of a headache to pull off. For once, though, I actually caught the problem BEFORE I started drawing, which saved hours for frustration and thrown out pages. And, honestly, I like the peaking-over-the-crowd angle better anyway. It gave me a chance to squeeze in the backs of a bunch of rarely-seen character's heads (I wonder how many of them stayed recognizable from behind?)

Not a whole lot to say otherwise, except that this whole "inflatable reindeer" running gag is a reference to the beach balls that occasionally plague WWE shows (particularly the ones the night after a major pay per view, where the crowds are still hungover and rowdy from the night before, apparently). I find myself wanting to expound upon the people who do disruptive stuff like that, but it'd basically just be me dusting off an old rant about people who go to conventions and spontaneously decide to throw their own part in the middle of somebody else's event. Gotta save that stuff for Conventional Wisdom, right?

EDIT: ...aaaaaand somehow I managed to post a version that's missing one (and ONLY one) line of dialog. Really not sure how that even happened, but I'll have it fixed in a sec. Whoopsie!

@ Comic: The blow-up Reindeer ended up inside the ring, didn't it?

Ya know, seeing as how I've never actually heard of a beachball accidentally landing in the ring, it actually WOULD make sense that Frank's attempt to ride the bandwagon would go disastrously wrong like that.

Just FYI, one of the ad companies you're using is throwing the "redirect and capture your browser" things, going to their site and disabling the "back" button. It seems to mainly work when going to your page from the Facebook link.

Awww man, again? Seems like that was happening a while ago, too. Sadly, there's not a lot I can do about it on my end, 'cos it's not one of "my" ads. The only one I actually have any control over is the the Project Wonderful one at the bottom. The others are a rotation of ads that SmackJeeves automatically inserts into the pages of free accounts (like mine). All we can really do is report the problem, only the admins can actually do anything about it... and since there's multiple ad providers at work, it can be hard for them to track down exactly which one is acting maliciously.

In the meantime, the best way to avoid this mess is to start a SmackJeeves account and only view the comics while logged in. Aside from the whole "you get a picture next to your comments!" thing, the benefit of having an account is that all the site's ads go away while you're logs in, the only one that'll still show up is my Project Wonderful one down at the bottom (and I've yet to hear anyone having this kind of problem with them)

Hmmm, head-back cameos - let's see, there's Ichabod's mentor, the nitpicker who looks like Vengeance, and sweaty-groundhog-guy from Layla's family's company. I don't think I recognized any other head-backs. Of course there's also several of the numbered-most-important-people (who naturally won't admit being with Frank. Who would?)
