If Only

Scott, you're the last person I should be having coffee with, but I'm thirsty and you're here. So let's talk! Scootch over a little closer, we don't have to be sitting opposite each other like strangers. So how's Nina? Hey, come on, it's okay for us to hold hands, we're adults. God, you seem so tense! Do you want me to rub your shoulders? No point crying over spilled bordeaux, you know. Speaking of which...! I think I have a bottle of Bailey's stashed in my bag somewhere, why don't we make this Irish coffee?

I finally realized why Frank flip-flops the characters. He needs the conversation to flow properly so he draws as the conversation needs to progress. Did everyone else learn this in kindergarten and I was home sick that day?

I like Maggie's narrative better, I guess that's why I read this blog.

Ken: No one learned this, it's a terrible way to draw a comic. The "camera" shouldn't suddenly jump to the other side of the characters in mid-conversation.

Or should it???? ...nah, I'm just playing, it shouldn't.
