When you say expelled…

This is episode 154 of The Middle Age. You can read the story from the beginning here.

Big thanks to my supporters on Patreon who make this comic strip possible!

I think everyone knew what was going to happen in this episode. 🙂

Shop Talk: Just as I was about to press the button on this finished episode, I scrapped it and switched the order of the last two panels to have the episode end with the retching. I had to rewrite the text but I think it works a bit better.

I’m not sure if the final “Ha!” was necessary (and really trusts the reader to recognize the word balloon style and font) but Maledicta needs to have the last word every once in a while. 🙂

Thanks again for your kind shares, comments, and support!

    Recognizing the word-balloon style: Just one of the benefits of giving different fonts to different characters.

    Being eaten, “Just a Little”? Sounds Freudian to me. And I really have no issue whatever with word balloons. The font variety really helps. I just wish the story could move a bit faster. Patience is not my strong suit.
