Since my Arkian / Cosmos story was all about the reactions and responses of the principal players to the character exchange, I felt - after giving The Knight his due in the first two pages - to switch focus and address the other half of the equation: namely, what did the Cosmos gang think about the disappearance of Gene? The most heavily impacted, obviously, was Jenny: given that her significant other had been snatched away right before her eyes, with no way of telling where he had even gone and even how to get him back, she bore the brunt of the shock. The Knight, in turn, would feel honour-bound to offer his support and reassurance, given that, in an indirect fashion, he was the one who displaced Gene in the first place. At this point in the story, coincidentally, I revealed a slight misapprehension on the part of both myself and the characters: that - sight unseen - the Character exchange was a direct swap, with character A and character B ending up in each other's comic. As such, both Artie and Co., and then the Knight, react in horror at the consequences of Mr. Ellis running amok in the Arkian universe's high-tech, lots-and-lots-of-shiny-buttons future. Fortunately (or unfortunately), upon viewing all the crossover strips as they were released, I saw that the exchange system was completely randomised, with characters being flung hither and yon to the most random strips imaginable! Oops. Oh well, nobody in any of the comics had any clue what was going on anyway, so their misreading of the situation is perhaps understandable....
