The thing about the boxes and random stuff on the lab’s shelves is that the students use these labs collectively, so they leave a lot of their things here that can’t fit in their lockers. In retrospect, a genetics lab used by teenagers probably shouldn’t be based on the honor system, but, hey.

It was unintentional, but I like how the three rows of panels work as their own separate strips. Each is its own mini scene, ending with a “button”–that is, a moment that finishes it off naturally, allowing the story to jump to another scene. (Looking back at this many years later, it seems like this was the point where I began consciously adopting that technique for pages that cut between multiple scenes.)
