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.
I wanted to really play with the cast of Little Dee here, by not only handling a somewhat gruesome ghost story (largely inspired by such early books as Frankenstein and Jeckyl & Hyde), but also by playing with themes such as the literary double and a narrator within a story.
Blake’s unaware deadpan in this strip still slays me. :)
SPX was a grand time. Ahhhh! And now I’m on the late bus back to my brother’s. Zoom! Blogging from the bus — so, a con report will have to wait until wednesday’s strip.
And I won’t be in Seattle for it, but the 17th is the annual “Pigs For Peace” walk at Greenlake, and my sweetie Beth is walking, so please donate, and know a donation for her walking is like for me walking (only I’m only there in spirit). They’re an organization who takes care of potbelly pigs (among other animals) who were pets and were poorly treated or not wanted, and so now they have a good home.
I’m glad you all seem to be enjoying this week. I know that almost all of have a story to tell relating to the topic, either of ourselves or someone close to us.
I find willfully ignoring something wicked someone’s done is sometimes better than facing it, especially when you know they are incapable of change and you also know you’re stuck with them for the duration.
And sometimes not.
