I enjoyed watching the readers start to puzzle over it as Best drew first blood. Why wasn’t he proving to be all talk and no action? Well, surely that was just a fluke.

Phil was clearly doing more in terms of distorting and re-Photoshopping the sound effects here than he would in other places. They’re sort of the stars of the show here.

I would’ve liked to do more tooling around with rage comics than this offhand reference, which, like most of this sequence, was all Phil. These days, though, it’d probably be too dated to pick that idea up. Oh, well, you have your fun where you can.
