Wow. You can tell I drew THIS a long time ago. Not only does Raff look a little different, but Holly doesn't have the "shark fin" ears that developed over the series run.
Some storylines were popular because of the issues they touched on and how far things spun out of control. Others were popular because they dealt with specific annoyances in the workplace. Among people in offices as opposed to the general readership, I think this storyline was the most popular one.
