Previous contributor Ahdok (here revealing his real name in the signature) expanded Bandit’s skill set a bit for this guest strip. It’s probably just as well that our Bandit never had hypnosis at her disposal: the temptation to use it to enhance her social standing would’ve run hot.

Oddly enough, this was not the only guest strip we published in 2012 that featured Byron reacting badly to the presence of bees.

I know it’s necessary for the joke, but I’m like, SURELY Bandit mentioned what the new trigger actually WAS, right? We just cut away from that scene a little too early, says my headcanon.
