This was the first of the vacations, and what I felt was a very fun tradition. I used to keep stacks of National Geographics around and page through, pondering where they’d go next. But this article on the tepuis of Venezuela was truly breathtaking, and it was fun to put it in the strip.
This strip cracks me up, especially the loops flying through the air in panel #3.
It makes me smile that my mom thought so too and purchased this one the moment she saw it. :)
I always found this strip interesting, because although there’s only one spoken word in the whole thing “AAAAHH!” (not counting Blake’s sleep mumblings), the strip really takes a lot of time to fully read, because each activity and expression plays a role in the strip.
I am always amazed at how much little tragedies plague people. But I also get it, some days when I’m at wit’s end, they plague me too. But even when it’s plaguing me, I still find it funny.
When researching writing this week, I was wondering how to remember which were stalagmites and stalactites. I found this (or was told it, I don’t recall), and it was my favorite way to remember.
I am very pleased with Vachel and Dee in the two silent panels.
