Grouping For Looks is a page-by-page retelling of the Looking For Group saga through the lens of a mirror universe where Cale is a goateed tyrant and Richard is a holy soul trying to set him on a good path.
EXT. TOWN BORDERING KETHENECIA – THE PAST* – DAY
The gateway dumps Richard’s still still uncorpse into an alley in a town bordering Kethenecia. Sooba, Cale, Tavor, and Benny with minitaur Krunch sitting on her shoulder, take turns gingerly stepping on Richard’s chest on their way out of the gate.

Vaycon points at the tiny bull person on Benny’s shoulder.
How cute is he?
Breem smiles for the first time.
Awww. Who be an adorable widdle bull man? Ye be! Ye be!
Don’t make me break the fourth wall with your face.
