Apologies (again) to Thorbjørn Egner.
Yes! As promised, here’s the follow-up to this strip. Character inconsistencies prevent it from being called a sequel or prequel, so we’ll just call it a reboot and leave it at that. Oh, and if you’re scratching your head in bewilderment about what’s going on here, the previous strip about these guys also holds further information, complete with wikipedia and youtube links.
