Three's Company

I looked at today's strip and thought that Margo and Martin were having a conversation in the first panel.  It's getting pretty hard to keep track of who's who and where they are supposed to be.  And that Martin is now younger than Eric.  I guess that avalanche thing really took a lot out of him.

So I'm not a doctor, but I didn't think that hyperthyroidism was so life-threatening.  According to internet medical research, which is always accurate, a thyroid storm is pretty dangerous, but Margo wasn't displaying any of the symptoms besides being cranky, disoriented and binge-eating at the diner.  I felt that way at work today when I didn't get to eat my lunch until 1:45.  It was touch and go.

If A3G had better artwork and decent writing, would we be having as much fun?

@fauxprof: Definitely not! Take today (WEDNESDAY) for example--Eric specifically said he did NOT want to go outside with Gabby and Martin (or the shape-shifters that purport to represent Gabby and Martin), yet there he is, out on the streets of Manhattan. Wacky and hilarious!

Probably the most common symptom of thyroid storm is an out-of-control heartbeat, and to be fair, that's probably hard to portray in comic form. But are we even sure Margo is still alive? No one's seen her for days or seems to be making any effort to find her hospital room.

In other news, Martin has regressed all the way back to his teenage years in Wednesday's strip, so Margo's deathly illness seems to be doing wonders for him.
