The image is mostly negative space surrounding two sets of bootprints, each connected with dotted lines so that the reader can tell they are two separate entities. Each bootprint belonging to the left track is accompanied by the word "CLOP"; each bootprint on the right track is accompanied by the word "CLIP." When the two paths meet at the bottom of the page a question mark appears above each.} {Frame 2: The two sets of bootprints are shown, with the left pair speaking.} HI! MY NAME IS THORI AND I'M AN INVISIBLE DWARF! {Frame 3: The two sets of bootprints are shown, with the right pair speaking.} THAT'S NICE!

HOBBITS ALWAYS CLIP! {Frame 5: A though bubble rises from the right pair of bootprints.} ARRGH! {Note: Between frames 5 and 6 is a small frame which reads "THIS SPACE FOR RENT."} {Frame 6: Speaking aloud the right pair of bootprints responds.} SAY, AS LONG AS WE HAVE SO MUCH IN COMMON, WHY DON'T WE GET OUR OWN COMIC STRIP? {Frame 7: Both sets of bootprints are shown speaking.} [Left Set] THAT'S A GREAT IDEA!

DIVISION OF ARAMAC ENTERPRISES {Frame 1: The bootprints are now shown only as outlines. Each following frame is a minor variation of the bootprints speaking to one another. In this frame both are speaking.} [Thori/ Left Set] WELL, LOGO, HERE WE ARE IN OUR VERY FIRST STRIP! HOW YA LIKE IT? [Logo/ Right Set] THE TITLE'S OK., BUT I CAN'T SAY MUCH FOR THE SCENERY! {Frame 2: Thori, the left set of bootprints, speaks.} DON'T BE HARD ON THE ARTIST, LOGO!
