Thanks for reading.
I think I've run out of funny sequel titles for posts on recording the
The original script for this cartoon had the fourth panel set later the same evening as the first three panels, Guenevere in bed with Arthur complaining, "What's got you out of sorts now?" Yeah, Arthur's going to have years of adjusting to do when the affair starts, but time enough for that when the affair starts.
Still, I hate to imply that Guenevere's slow, taking so long to figure out what Merlin meant. But she and Lancelot had to be visibly older in the last panel, lest readers mistake it for the same evening as the other three. I don't want readers complaining that I've accomplished a major plot point offpanel, not when I haven't done it at all yet.
With this being the third example I can think of off the top of my head, I guess the fourth-panel two-decade flash-forward has officially become a convention of Arthur, King of Time and Space. ...And they all seem to be Guenevere feature gags. I must see about giving everyone else a chance.
