Comic 9 - Tough love

Tough love

Panel 1:
The keyboardist for Cult of XünÿX is still lying on the couch in the band's dressing room. He is in a T-shirt, dressed down from how he looked during the show. One of his arms is dangling towards the floor; the other is resting on the headrest.
Keyboardist: You knew the deal, sweetie! No drugs during the tour. We found your stash, you can have it back when we get home.

Panel 2:
Frits Zuniga, the singer for Cult of XünÿX, turns his head towards his bandmate. He is seen from the back, shirtless, skinny and with a towel around his neck. Much of him is in shadow.
Frits: I need it.

Panel 3:
Seen from above, the keyboardist is getting up off the couch. Frits gestures wildly at him.
Keyboardist: What we need is for you to be on form.
Frits: I /am/ on form. Did you see the crowd?

Panel 4:
Keyboardist: The crowd liked it because they couldn't hear your guitar. I could.
Frits: What are you suggesting?

Panel 5:
Keyboardist: Tag is right! You're playing like shit and everything everybody hears comes from my keyboard.
Frits: Fuck off!

Panel 6:
Frits and the keyboardist are now practically nose to nose. Frits is sweating. A dark shadow is visible behind him.
Keyboardist: …and as soon as this tour is over, I'm getting you
checked in!
Frits: Grm!

Panel 7:
Zig, Aideen O'Neill and Tess Durban are eyeballing the scene. Tess points at the dark shadow.
Zig: …And I'm sorry you had to see /that/.
Tess: Er… guys, what's that?

ReinderDijkhuis His name shall be Jan Boenen. As un-Goth as it can be, but that's what makes it work.
