Off Panel

Amy greets the audience and begins to explain how fans can send in their letters and art when Sticks appears, horrified that Amy would give out their contact information so carelessly. Amy asks what she means, enabling Sticks to ramble about "them" and how "they" are spying on everyone. Amy concedes that you need to be careful with sending people your personal information but argues that they need to give fans a method to send in their questions and fan art. Sticks objects, fearing that the art will be used as a method of stealing her soul, before deciding that the fans can have their contact information as long as they keep surveillance on her mailman. Written by Aleah Baker, pencils and inks by Ryan Jampole, letters by Jack Morelli, colors by Matt Herms.
