Strip by: KelpTheGreat

{Whole strip is repeated in negative: with negative colors, and reflected as if into the negative axis of a number line.}
(Minus is playing with a ball by herself)
Mean boy #1: Hey, that's the new student playing there, right? Let's go "join" her, heh heh heh...
Mean boy #2: Heh heh heh heh
(Mean boy #1 grabs her ball)
Mean boy #1: Got it!
Minus: Thank you.
Mean boy #1: No problem!
Mean boy #1: Here you go!
(He throws the ball directly into Minus' face, knocking her over. Mean boy #2 catches the ball.)
Mean boys: Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!!
Mean boy #2: Ha ha! You see her face? "Thank you", she said... then WHAM! Ha ha ha!
Mean boy #2: Hm?
(A root has emerged from the ground behind the boy, tapping him on the back of his head, and coiling around his right leg)
Mean boy #2: AA!!
Mean boy #1: Hey! What's happening to you!?
(Roots are extending rapidly towards this boy also)
Mean boy #1: AA!!
(Roots have entrapped this boy's left arm)
Mean boy #2: AAAA!!
Mean boy #1: Help!
(The roots have formed into trees and have lifted both boys approximately 8-12 feet off the ground)
(Minus resumes playing happily with her ball)

The author writes:

From the "About" page for iToons: "(iToons is) a much better name than Square Root of Minus Comics would have been." So naturally, I had to make a literal square root(s) of Minus comic(s).
