Comic #589

1 {scene:Berlin prison cell}
1 Prof. Jones: Junior, I hate to tell you this, but events have taken a bizarre twist.
2 Monty: What is it dad? Do you think they'll torture us? Starve us? Drive us mad?
3 Monty: Is there a steady and infuriating drip of water that you can't get out of your head? Are they playing mind games on us?!
4 Prof. Jones: {pointing to the next cell} There's a woman in the next cell!

Yes, folks - it's a brand new character. You'll have to wait to learn her name.

As last time when the Joneses were in the Berlin prison cell, I've resorted to shooting from "inside" the cell, so the bars don't get in the way of the characters. It's really hard to set up and shoot them so you can see their faces through the bars.

She will of course become a regular and major character in this theme.

I wanted to introduce a female character into this theme, since it was conspicuously lacking in any up to now.

(I'm not counting Hitler's Brain, even though he is, as is everything, referred to with the German article "die", which is used for feminine nouns. Nazi science sneers at unfortunate implications of humorously simplistic foreign grammar!)
