Responding to a call for help in the middle of a dense forest, Jinji discovers a poor Espurr tied up and surrounded by explosives! The Espurr tells Jinji she had been kidnapped as he examines the scene… but all is not as it seems!
I came up with this story as a sort of joke idea between myself and Charlotte (nowadays known as Witchy), taking into account her pranksterish tendencies. The idea as I originally described it was for her Espurr to lure Jinji into a trap by pretending to have been caught in one herself, with a faked kidnapping and explosives being some of my suggestions. Despite this, it is not entirely true to say I “came up” with this story – the actual strip was entirely Charlotte’s idea, which she created as a surprise for me. I should also make clear that despite similar ideas, this story has no relation to The Revenge of Witch Espurr; and it is not necessarily implied the two events are part of the same canon or timeline.
