Saving the City: Sans-Spandex

No comic this week.  Erika’s dog has gone from getting diagnosed with giant tumor, to emergency surgery where we expected either lose her or have to put her down from cancer, to miraculously coming through and now maybe is going to be okay…in less than 48 hours.  I am physically and emotionally SPENT.

    This is all going so well for our young… friends. Why do I have the feeling that something BAD will happen?
    Oh, right! It’s an action & humor webcomic.

    Man, I got almost to the end of the page before I realized I was meant to be reading those dialogue balloons as a back-and-forth exchange. Having them in completely separate panels with no connection at all is misleading.

    Might I suggest having the balloons overlap the center panel division from both sides, encouraging readers to read down the centre instead of one panel at a time like comics have trained us to do for almost a century?

    Or maybe having a zig-zag border between the frames would have helped — that’s a common convention for opposite sides of a phone call.

    Doing an archive reread, just have to say I love this line: “Gotta go. Don’t want her to think I’m being nefarious.”
