The actor’s freeze as Mark leans into the shot.

Yeah, it’s a cheap shot, but I couldn’t resist.

However, this is the last Zortic strip of 2008. But you definitely want to be here next week for the first 2009 strip.  I won’t give away who’s going to be making their appearance next, but you’ll get a brand new introduction to one more old friend…

Okay, it’s Splink.  It’s not like there were that many cast members left to reintroduce anyway.
