Number of panels: 6
Next to the
Beaver confronts the recently unmasked (unbearded?) Shoe Goblin.
Beaver: "You're not taking that shoe anywhere Shoe Goblin!"
Shoe Goblin REMOVE!'s his fake beard.
Shoe Goblin: "I'd like to see ye stop me..."
Shoe Goblin HOPP!s in the air, PRESSes his beltbuckle and PFFT!s purple gas into Beaver and Steve's faces.
Shoe Goblin: "Once ye've had a taste o' my knock-out shoe gas!"
Steve: "Gag! My eyes! It burns! It burns!"
Beaver: "Cheesy fumes... Rendering me unconcious..."
Beaver and Steve are on the floor, with an open box that reads "SOLES".
Three shoe soles can be seen on the floor, as well as a dead sole fish.
Beaver: "Ugh... Head throbbing... Strange craving for stilton... What happened?"
The view pans slightly to the right, also revealing a soul (phonetically equivalent to 'sole') on the floor.
Beaver: "Oh no! The Shoe Goblin! He's gone! Wake up Steve! We have to catch him!"
Beaver SHAKE!s Steve, who is still sleeping
Steve: "Mrf.. Yes your highness, I'd love some more trifle... ZZZZZ..."
Beaver: "With a shoe that size there's no telling what he might do... But will we ever find him?"
A large shot of the whole city block, showing the shoe shop (labelled "SHOES"), a hat shop across the street ("HAT-O-RAMA" with a little hat above the O), and a "mile-long" shoebox with various rocket boosters attached to it, preparing for take-off, in the middle of the street.
A car is BEEPing its horn at the shoebox and the Shoe Goblin is climbing up the box on a ladder, with his hat bell JING JINGing.
Shoe Goblin: "Ha ha ha!"
The Sun is observing it all from above, while Beaver and Steve are completely unaware of the box, looking the opposite way.
Beaver: "Ok Steve, if you were an evil, shoe-obsessed fairy-creature with a mile long shoe box, where would you be?"
