Here, we get a chance to see Stu's taped ribs, so that injury is finally, officially, addressed.
Stu's character evolution from stiff, no-nonsense ninja to less-rigid, mildly fun-loving ninja continues in panel two, where he insists lots of burritos must be consumed soon.
I have a fairly good feeling that Mike's exclamation in panel three about forgetting Bee Man is based in reality. I have a vague memory of almost finishing the writing of volume 2 without resolving the B-story. (See what I did there?) Luckily, I remembered before wrapping things up, and added Mike's line as a way of poking fun at myself for almost screwing up.
Finally, confession time: I relied on liberal use of Photoshop to clone the bee texture used on Giant Bee Man. Too many tiny circles to draw.
