The GIMP and Glimpse

A comic with two characters: a cartoon goat; 
            and a cartoon Tyranosaurosaurus rex dinosaur.
            Goat: Have you heard about the GIMP?
            Dinosaur: HEARD about it?? It's my favourite non-Inkscape image 
            manipulation program. I COULDN'T LIVE WITHOUT IT!!!
            Goat: Wow, strong feelings there.
            Dinosaur: Yes! Did you know most blogs and social media websites 
            won't let you post SVG images?
            Goat: I didn't know that. But, SVG? I was talking about the GIMP, it's for...
            Dinosaur: ... bitmaps, I know, but when I have a beautiful SVG image - 
            like say a comic about a talking dinosaur... that solves crimes...
            Goat: You convert it to PNG format before posting it online?
            Dinosaur: Yes.
            Goat: Did you hear they made a new version of GIMP called GLIMPSE so it wouldn't
            insult disabled people?
            Dinosaur: Really? Huh.
            Dinosaur (thinks): Neat!

BOY (laughing face): That's great, but what's going on with your face? ROBOT (monstrous face); I don't know. I think someone may have changed my basic personality setting from 'good' to 'evil'.

A comic with two characters, a goat and a polar bear. GOAT: Hey, you're a polar bear! BEAR: Hey, you're a goat! GOAT: Did you notice how your toe claws go right outside the panel? BEAR: I know, right: It's almost as if some lazy web designer didn't think that through...
