Anyway, out of curiosity, were these originally 4 separate strips that you're posting together to increase the rate at which this storyline moves? Looking at them from the standpoint they do each seem to have the characteristics of such. The first, second, and fourth sets of 3 panels each play out with a punchline at the end (speaking of which, I love
the joke at the end of the first set), whereas the third set ends on a bit of a cliffhanger.
"I refuse to have a battle of wits against an unarmed opponent."
"Ah, but I am a master of unarmed combat!"
