I remember starting to lay out this strip, with all the SEMME agents clamped to the wall, and suddenly freaked out halfway through as I realized that I’d created something kinda Crucifixiony.  Dammit, no, I was not intending Christ allegory!  I was not yet weaned away from thinking such things kinda blasphemous, and so I… uh, I guess bent them all at the knees?  I mean, there’s only so many ways you can keep people clamped upright with their hands away from their bodies.  It’s just how humans do.

Anyway, this is way more space efficient.  Thumbs up to the Head Alien.
