Now, with the omniscient narrator and Yamara addressing the reader, you’d think that this episode would have no place in our later, continuing narrative. Surely this is just a gag-a-day style four-panel, and not part of the “canonical” World of Wyhtl.
BUT YOU WOULD BE SOOOOOOOO WRONG.
No, this is Yamara’s stint doing PSAs on Crystalvox as part of her community service related to reducing her not-previously-introduced jail time she served before the beginning of the series! It was also during this time of hanging around CV studios that she first meets Fea, and strikes up the acquaintance that would eventually lead to the party composition we saw in the first one-panel! Ah, the tidyness of our continuity! The elegance of our understatement! It BRINGS A MAN TO TEARS.
It’s just dripping with backstory! Awash with metaimplications! Can’t you see it?!
CAN’T YOU SEE IT!!?
