Most of my storylines degenerate into everybody just running around in a panic. And, eventually, drinking.
In yesterday’s comments, people noted Dave’s surprising ability to keep running all over the place on these adventures without getting winded. This is kind of a subtle thing, but throughout much of Narbonic, Dave seems to be in somewhat better physical condition than you’d think to look at him. You see him toting around objects that look too heavy for him to lift, for instance. I had the idea that Helen tweaked his body a little back when she cloned him.
Plus he’s used to operating with smoker’s lungs.
I like the arrows in the first panel telling the characters which way to run.
This may be my favorite strip in this storyline, and yet it would be totally worthless without the NYAR NYAR NYAR. It always made me happy when I was able to make Mell’s odd vocal mannerisms work.
One of the downsides of having an awesome giant flat-screen Macintosh monitor is that now I can see all the smudges and blotches and pencil lines on these old strips that I couldn’t see back when I scanned them in.
Just a plot strip to keep the story going. Too many plot strips in this storyline. I like the sweat drops shooting off Dave’s head, though. It’s always good when you can work in classic stuff like that. Also good: plop takes.
Man, I draw flippin’ adorable demons. Also, that’s actually a nice shadow under Artie in the first panel.
Sure, I suck at drawing backgrounds in perspective. But I like how very in character for Helen this entire strip is. Especially the first panel.
