Strip by: Cody

Caption: The following story is 100% true. The names have been changed to protect the innocent, and the guilty, as well as all the people who were in no way involved in this story but may try to sue us anyway. Now on with the webcomic.
{Professor Ambrose is in his laboratory}
{two police officers suddenly barge inside}
Police Officer 1: Freeze! You are under arrest!
{the two policemen grab Professor Ambrose by the arms}
Prof. Ambrose: But what for?
Police Officer 1: You are ordered by court of law to remain silent.
Prof. Ambrose: Can you at least tell me what I've done wrong?
Police Officer 2: {sighs} You are under arrest for conducting scientific experiments without a legal license... and for backtalking the law!

The author writes:

This is the first strip I've written for a short story arc to be published here on Lightning Made of Owls. You can expect the rest to all show up in time.

Also, the word "backtalk" amuses me for some reason.
