I always felt this strip read oddly, like it was out of sync in how Dee talked and then Ted reacted in the following panel… but, at the same time, I think that weird flow works well with the gag. Hm.
Yeah, timing seems off until the last panel. Then it makes sense.
Your comic is very enjoyable I look forward to it everyday. Have you ever thought about having Dee learn sign language? I know she can hear, but learning some sign would allow her to communicate. Of course I understand that part of the humor and childish innocence of the character comes from her inability to speak, so that may defeat the purpose to have her learn a language. :)
@Rosie, you’ve hit it on the head. If I ever was going to have her speak, it would probably be words, but part of the magic of the strip is her silent innocence. :)
I love this one. Dee makes her point so very well without words. The timing may appear odd at first glance, but it only takes a moment to realize what’s really going on, and then the dig on Vachel at the end is kind of priceless.
To me the timing enhances the feeling that Dee is energetic. She’s constantly one step ahead of the calm Ted.
