Here’s a little inside baseball: Rachel and I started putting Shinny after last year’s playoffs. For a while we didn’t know what the lockout would do to our precious little hockey comic. This strip in particular is a time-shifted product of that anxiety. Let us flash back to a conversation held between Shinny and her boyfriend in those pivotal days before the CBA memo.
BOOM. Mecha-Shinny vs Robo-Bettman. YES. You are welcome.
Let’s just be glad that — just like the non sequitur consequences of Shinny’s gambling– the uncertainty surrounding the league is now but a memory.
P.S. Let us know if you caught the other sight gag in this strip, ’cause it’s a sleeper, but it’s worth it.
