Freder Roselands excessively guarded collection of valuable artworks and artifacts has been mentioned once already...

And bonus points for whoever can guess the surname of Charm and Strange before reading the next page... ;-)

Quark? Boson? Subatomic Particles?

One of your guesses is correct! (Which one is it? Look at the sign on Charm's shoulder. ;-) )

Two aspiring thieves maybe trying to outshine a previous duo...

A punch in the dark. How uncivilised.

I imagine them to be sort of the "Always Someone Better" rivals to Dexter and Sinistra: They have the neater looking clothes, the neater looking hair, (seemingly) work in a more professional manner...

The next page will show that Strange also definitely has a rather low opinion on someone punching his dear sister in the dark. But... who is the puncher? ;-)

That's some advance security there.

Assuming of course that the mysterious punching person is actually supposed to be there... ;-)

That's a cheap shot, [redacted] showing up to the heist right after all the hard work has been done...

Perhaps [redacted] decided to let Strange and Charm have some fun first... :-D

When I first read this comic, I thought the punch came from a mechanical arm hidden inside the museum display. Security like a museum might have in an old Warner Brothers cartoon.

Hmm, I expected the web site to auto-link the URL. I'll try it with the "Add image" button...

Thank you! :-D I have put quite some thought into it, until I found something that worked!

Of course someone was going to steal the thing advertised on the side of the building...

Otherwise that would be boring! ;-D
