See? “Awarded”? It’s like getting an award–something a certain cartoonist has never achieved!
I don’t know what purpose Adeela serves, except to fulfill a diversity quotient in hopes of attracting the attention of an awards group or two. The thing is, he already had Khahn, who was a Muslim, and who was available as a worker at Montoni’s but then he decided to give him his own shop and then wrote him out. Why try again? Has there been an uptick in awards for this sort of thing? The blandness of the dialog in panel three makes me think so.
In contrast to some of the earlier episodes of this arc, the artwork here is very slapdash. To coin an oxymoron, it’s decidedly slapdash.
