<B>Gotta say, my fav strip is this one, not because of the top part, but I love that last box about the ninja. Infact, before that strip I was considering giving up on the comic, as Briefcase simply pissed me off. Hoax was good, but not until he reached the lab, which was later.

It's actually two strips (you've noticed that it's the only 8-panel strip in the run? That's why). Furthermore, they're displayed out of sequence. The bottom four panels are actually the first strip in sequence.<P>This happened because I screwed up on the file names when I was uploading (I was still new at this whole FTP thing at that point), and I'm too lazy to go back and fix the whole thing. Funny thing is, NOBODY has noticed, and I mean NOBODY.<P>That last panel, where Kitano enthuses about the throwing stars that go "Fwing! Fwing! Ching!" is probably my favorite panel ever. (inside joke alert: much later, when Kitano's ninja goes on his killing spree, you will notice that his throwing stars in the second panel do indeed go "Fwing! Fwing! Ching!")<P>As to your character observations:
Briefcase is supposed to piss you off, man! He's lazy, rude, and completely self-involved! However, I agree that Hoax did not find himself as a character until he started working in the lab.<P>Thanks for the feedback, and:<P>NEW STRIPS NEXT MONDAY!<P><P>------------------
