Daniel Norton is a wiry fellow. I first discovered his secret escape technique on the morning of 17 February 2000 and produced a quick scribble illustrating it, as shown below. Three months later I refined that scribble to create what you see here. It's really quite simple:
1. Dan is scared.
2. Opens hole in stomach.
3. Sucks himself in.
4. Becomes superdense core.
5. Sucks in bad guy with nunchucks.
6. Unfurls self.
7. Happy and safe, does a victory dance.
And it works surprisingly well!
