Reboot to the Head 10

Page 10 in the Reboot to the Head series is live!  Enjoy!

I’ve talked a lot…

…well…I just talk a lot.

But!  One thing I have talked a lot about recently is “panel density.”  That I’d like to fit more panels into each strip.  Given that there is a week between page updates, I want to give folks a little something to look at/read to tide them over until the next update.  Unfortunately, when writing the script for this chapter, I got a little carried away.  This page was supposed to be 6 panels.  What you see here was to be the first 3.  So I was supposed to squeeze Trebarg, 8 cats, two tables, and all that dialog into panels roughly half the size of what you see here.

Yeah, no.

So, instead, I decided to stretch this out into two pages, which would give me room to actually show what was going on in these panels.  As I reread the script I realized that I had committed the same crime on subsequent pages.  Too much action and dialog to actually squeeze into small panels on a single page.  So, instead of a 3 page chapter, this will be at least 4 or 5 pages.  I think it will work out a lot better in the end.

At any rate, I hope that you have enjoyed the last couple of pages.  As always, we look forward to your comments and e-mails.

    Not that I have any right to tell you how to do your comic… but I wonder if you could have excised the second panel and pushed the monologue into the other two. As you note, space is at a premium in comics, and so sometimes you have to show your action in as few panels as possible.

    By the way — is that a pan of kitty litter on the door?
