Chekhov's Trousersnake
Transcript Panel 1.
Mycelia waves at Vandervalk, Postillon and Gretchen.
Mycelia: And even if you were in the audience, it was safe as long as you didn't take the band seriously.
Gretchen (mock-earnestly): Can confirm.

Panel 2.
Mycelia: We need to divert the audience's attention from them, with a different band. But it has to be a very different sort of band, one that doesn't sing about death and decay and one that is fundamentally unserious.

Panel 3.
Ernst: Right, I'll see if the Ron Dunghill Trio are up for a second set.
Vandervalk/Postillon: Huh-huh-huh!
Ernst: That wasn't a joke.

Panel 4.
Eisso: The Ron Dunghill Trio took the 6PM ferry home.
Gertrude: So… who else?

Panel 5.
Cut to a caravan of large tour buses, seen from the outside. They are painted with the Trousersnake logo. From inside the front bus, the band leader speaks.
Dana "Dame" Cloverhill: Jeeves, turn the bus around. We're getting picked up by a helicopter for a special gig.

You didn't think I would leave the earlier mentions of the band Trousersnake hanging, did you?
I managed, somehow, to fit the entire page into my working week, but this does mean that next week's comic is at high risk of being delayed, as I will need to design the tour bus interiors and the actual members of Trousersnake. If a delay happens, supporters of my Patreon and my Supporter Gallery on DeviantArt will get some guest art to tide them over; I prefer not to fill up my archives on ComicFury with filler art and out-of-sequence comics, so these items will appear only there for the time being.
