0039 It’s Not Very Effective


Punks use threaten.

These next few strips were originally this length. When I first started doing art, I decided they were too short, and basically packed them together, 2 into 1. But thinking about the art, now that I have reached them, I decided they’d be way too busy.

We’ll have to see how it goes. If the next sequence keeps on with the low panel count, I might increase the pace of updates until it ends. Might. I’m still extraordinarily busy, trying to make rent. Even though the panel count is low, it looks the actual content is going to be really challenging. I’ll have to see this weekend, when I have more time to think about it.

I’m also thinking of rewriting the following sequence, or tweaking it a bit. This is Rey’s comic, and she hasn’t been in it enough. I like having the chance to show she has more expressions beyond “annoyed” and “angry.”

On the upside, the art for Friday is done. It’s just a matter of finding time to assemble the strip and letter it.

    If I were one of these guys, I’d be looking for an exit.

    It’s basically like any animal that has experience with humans… if an adult human is not afraid of you, you DON’T want to find out why. That’s why most dogs are actually terrified if they snarl and the human isn’t frightened.

    I know this works. I have had dogs as big and bigger than I am whimpering in fear when they threaten me and I smiled.
