I'm quite certain that Diane has no idea what she's talking about and that Elliot and Susan's latest review won't result in any sort of mayhem or hijinks.
I know nothing about the dude in panel one. He exists solely to be the dude who almost took the review seriously. All the same, I want him to return. I will find things for him to comment on, dammit, and--And I could've sworn I drew stubble on his chin. That chin is NOT supposed to be shaved. Maybe I can correct before--Wait, no. It's already part of the commentary! NO! THERE IS NO SOLUTION TO THIS PROBLEM! IT WOULD CAUSE A PARADOX!
Meh. He can grow it in later.
