Page 4:
Audrey: Who...

So you went to see him, eh? I expected as much.
It's honestly all right, Kevin...

Audrey: Because when you learn this secret
you won't be able to sneak away.
Kevin: Who...
are you?

Page 6:
Title: Chapter 105 Real and Fake, New and Old [4/8]

Page 7:
Kevin: Ah... You're the chief assistant, right?
That guy... Chuck Culkin was talking before,
and he said the chief was kinda getting on in years.
Oh, uh... I'm not interested in becoming an assistant or anything.
He invited me, but I'm not thinking about taking your job, not at all...
Chuck: Try drawing it.
Kevin: Huh...?
Chuck: He sent you here so I could get a look at you skills, right? Try drawing him.
Kevin: Uh... I'm not actually...
Chuck: Feel free to use any pen and paper.

Page 8:
Kevin: ..........
SFX: SHA SHAH
Kevin: Here, I drew 'im.

Page 9:
Chuck: Could you try drawing him one more time?
Kevin: Huh...? Okay...
SFX: SHAH SHA SHAH
Chuck: One more.
Kevin: Yeah, sure.
Chuck: One more!!

Page 10:
Chuck: One more.
One more!!
One more!!
One more!!
Kevin: Huuuuuuuuuu...
!!

Page 11:
Chuck: How long have you been able to do drawings like these?!
Kevin: Uh, since I was a kid...
Chuck: How long have you been able to draw Billy like this?!
Kevin: Uh... Well I sorta always draw him this way...
Chuck: How is it you can draw this?!!
Kevin: Huh...?

Page 12:
Chuck: How is it you can draw like Master?
Kevin: Master...?
Chuck: Who are you?!
Kevin: I'm Kevin.
Kevin Goodman.
Chuck: Kevin...
You have the same name as my master.

Page 13:
Kevin: Master... You're saying master at drawing Billy Bat...
is named Kevin...
Kevin Yamagata?
Chuck: How do you know that name?
Kevin: I was named after Kevin Yamagata.

Page 14:
Chuck: I can't believe it...
Finally...
Finally...
You came to take it back!
AAa!!

Page 15:
Chuck: AAaaa!! [Letters gradually get smaller]
HAa
HIH
HAa
HIH
HAa
HIH
Kevin: Came to take it back...?
Chuck: I...
stole it...
I stole Billy Bat from Master!!

Page 16:
Chuck: That man cajoled me into it...
I stole Kevin Yamagata's Billy Bat!!
Kevin: That man...
You mean Chuck Culkin...?
Chuck: Chuck Culkin is my name.
Kevin: Huh? There're two Chuck Culkins?
Chuck: That man isn't Chuck Culkin!!
Kevin: Ah... Then...
Who is he?!

Page 17:
Chuck: Over thirty years ago, he just appeared at my studio one day.
And he kept praising me, saying how wonderful my drawings were.
And how the two of us...
would take hold of the world together...
Kevin: You really don't know who he is?
Chuck: He... saw the movie "The Great Escape" a while back and laughed.
And said that not one American made it out of that POW camp...
When I asked how he knew so much about it
he just laughed.
Kevin: ..........

Page 18:
Chuck: And when by Billy Bat started selling
He said that his homeland was now a communist country, so he couldn't make money like this there...
That's all I know about him...
But just like he said,
we really did grasp hold of the world...
I stole Master's artwork...
and I took hold of the world...

Page 19:
Kevin: You don't grab a hold of the world just by stealing it.
It's because you worked hard for thirty years...
Chuck: Yes,
I did work hard.
On that man's strategy
I worked myself to death.
But...
I know. I know that no matter how much I draw it, I can't live up to Master's Billy Bat.
I'd expect you're well aware of it.
I draw
and draw

Page 20:
Chuck: and draw...
and draw...
and draw...
but I can't draw a Billy Bat like Master's!!
Much less can I make those complex, magnificent, mysterious stories!!
So somehow, for thirty years
I've done nothing but lie and deceive...!!

Page 21:
Chuck: All rightyyy! And so we meet him again this week
Everyone's friend, Billy Bat.
Okay, let's go on an adventure together.
What sort of adventure could be waiting for us this time...?
I drew my style of bright and fun Billy Bat.
But...
I can't draw that smile anymore...
I can't even draw...
the fake Billy anymore...

Page 22:
Chuck: I'm no longer a cartoonist...
I guess this is punishment from above...
The only thing someone like me can do...
is hand this chair over to you.

Page 23:
Kevin: N... No.
I... I can't...
Chuck: I'm counting on you.
Kevin: Huh...?!
Chuck: Take up the helm.
Kevin: No... But...
Chuck: You'll support Chuck Culkin Entertainment.
Kevin: Wh... What...?
!!

Page 24:
Billy: C'mon, draw!
Side: Kevin was named as the successor by the real Chuck Culkin. Will Kevin end up drawing the fake Billy...?!
Bottom: "Billy Bat" Chapter 105 / End
Next issue, a surprising development...!!
