New characters - Julius the rat, and Pierre the griffon. Julius and Pierre live in the same town as Raaky, so they'll both be making appearances later on.
Here's the gist of the comic, for anyone who's confused. Pierre wakes up early to the sound of his alarm, sleepwalks down the hall with the alarm clock in his right hand, and stuffs his alarm clock in the fridge. Only in the *last* panel is he awake enough to ask what time it is - but it's still doubful whether he's lucid enough to realize what he did with his clock.
This is also an example of why good art matters: if you don't get that that's a refrigerator in the third panel (or notice the clock in his hand), you won't understand this comic at all. You'll probably understand that Pierre is tired and irritated, but you won't understand that he's SO tired and irritated, his first instinct on waking up is to hide his alarm clock inside an airtight box.
I showed the black and white version of this to a few friends, and they all though it was funny - but only *after* I explained panel 3. I hope this colored version communicates everything more clearly. Anyway, I think this is a good candidate for redrawing once I've fleshed out my art process a bit more.Enjoy more of Raaky's World on my homepage, Raaky Designs Art
