I hadn’t originally planned for this strip to end this way…
I was just going through the outline for the next few strips and what this strip should be and there wasn’t any reason why this guy shouldn’t be punched in the face. Sure it’s not the smartest thing in the world for John to do given what he just saw happen to George… but John isn’t thinking clearly here.
In fact, I was proud of John for punching him out. He deserved it. And I do realize it’s pretty narcissistic of me to be proud of the actions I had a character that I created do.
More of this arc next week including a flashback to show who this guy is and his connection to Lyn.
