I'm not sure how successful I was at painting Bob as a cooperative spirit in this storyline. I mean, the point was that, at his core, he's a decent guy. His problem has always been his sibling rivalry with George: since George was the good guy, Bob always felt like he had to be the bad guy. But during this storyline, Bob has kind of gotten swept along with things, and he's not really thinking about how he has to be the bad guy. And like so many of us, when we're not really thinking about how we're supposed to be acting, we fall back on who we really are.

All of this was building to George mentioning Bob's behavior, and Bob angrily forcing himself back into the bad guy role, which leads to the end of the comic. Of course, in order for that to work, Bob has to start getting along with George in a believable way, but you can't just have his personality change suddenly. So the goal is to slowly change the way Bob is behaving without the audience realizing it, and I don't know how successful I was at that.
