I think I'm in agreement with Maggie's comments from a while back. At this point, the art is what it is. Frank puts in characters that would pass in a lineup for the people who they are supposed to be, slaps in minor background detail so we know if we're inside or outside and we go with it because he's 90. I'm not even going to comment on how Tim's part changes between the first and the second strip because that's not even why I'm mad.
But the writing is just terrible. I mean you only have two panels. That's at most three talking/thought bubbles? But every...single...day a character says something incredibly vague with their thought bubble like "Margo is not what you think," which is completely incongruous to anything that has ever happened in the strip. It's mostly that it's poor writing, but as a blogger who has to comment on this it's excruciating. End of rant.
