This is another strip I was deeply tempted to rewrite, because it's just panel after panel of the same visual while I backhandedly dunk on someone else who wrote webcomics at the time (though depending on who you ask that remembers what I'm talking about in this strip, he probably deserved all the dunks you can dish out, but that's neither here nor there.) Ultimately though I really couldn't think of anything better to fill this space. The visuals are the issue: there are a lot of samey strips in the Dead Library, but most of the time there's at least something that happens at least once to shake things up. The easy thing to do in a rewrite would be to insert literally anything - surrealist dialogue, out of context conversations, dialogue continuing that ongoing "Franco" storyline I started entirely in these rewrites. Problem is those stand out the most in strips like this.
