So the moon minion is asking the emperor to kiss his burnt finger, and the emperor refuses. Fair enough. But we established that the moon emperor somehow applied his own “high-viscosity-moon-saliva” to the minion’s finger.
A better artist might have shown you the saliva application, but given my methods, I would have needed to pose a photograph of Ric sucking on or spitting on someone’s finger. No comic strip is worth that.
