Stilez and Tax are still kind of baffled by the notion of receiving food they didn't have to break into someplace and steal

It's like a full meal version of that one mystery soda machine in Seattle!

So, this was another one of those pages where I had to chuck whole drafts of the page and start over from scratch. I just couldn't figure out a way to cram all the necessary visual information of the second half into one single frame and have it all be understandable. In fact, I still didn't really pull it off. The "establishing shot" was supposed to make it clear that this is one of the snack machines in the dinning hall that Ichabod modded to be more interesting to Stilez... but I couldn't pull the view out far enough to show the whole row of snack machines AND keep the punching game stuff legible in the same frame, and I was already endangering the pacing of the page by having two frames down there instead of one as it was. I'm sure there's some brilliant layout idea that would solve all this, but between all those Conventional Wisdom comics I'm still trying to finish, the rest of those Patreon comics that I'd REEEAAALLY hoped would be up by now, and several unexpected Real Life distractions, I just didn't have time to discover it. Ah well, such are the staggering challenges of art.

But at least I managed to get a new Voting Incentive done in the middle of all this!

Vote incentive: And he's okay.

@ Incentive: That'll last all of... until he manages to actually cut down a tree, no matter how small.

@ Comic: Did Trigger interact with that to prepare it? Because that looks like Trigger's handywork. Though, to be honest, it could be that Ichabod can do that too, but I don't feel like he's the type to actually actively do something like that. Too much actually doing things other than just talking or running for his life at a pace faster than a snails for old Ichabod.

Now that you mention it, that IS more of a Trigger thing to do, isn't it?

Actually, I think that's something I can work into Friday's page! Just gimmie a sec...
