Strip by: Ian Boreham

{In the Matrix headquarters lobby, Trinity is running on the wall, as in the Matrix movie; there are bullets flying everywhere, and the air is full of debris. However, she is actually on a "Dance Dance Revolution" machine, modified to cover the wall also, and she is stepping on the buttons on the wall. The machine is labelled "Dance Dance Matrix Revolutions". Instead of the clues for where to step next, its screen is covered in the Matrix green rain.}

The author writes:

OK, OK, I know this scene is from The Matrix, not from Revolutions.

From time to time I find myself thinking "Hang on, that thing in the Matrix didn't make any sense!", and I have to remind myself that there is nothing to be gained from thinking about such things. There is no point in finding out how deep that rabbit hole goes. The Matrix movies are made to be experienced with critical faculties dialled down a bit.

This was a strip I put off doing repeatedly, since it looked like a lot of work. It did turn out to be somewhat time-consuming, and I'm not entirely happy with the result. If I'd planned the colours better, Trinity would have stood out from the background better, and it would have been easier to see what's going on. Hopefully it's still intelligible (assuming that it makes sense to anybody other than me).
