She's such a charmer.

Next ish concludes George's encounter on the ledge, with new Midnight Avenger escapades to follow. We'll be seeing this little lady again in the future, though. I knew if I were going to add a female character, she'd have to be totally different from Christopher and George and Twitch. An older, angrier, and much more caustic high school "Heather" seemed like just the ticket.

heheh Sorry George, she sort of has a point. This Heather is a more than a ledge full of drama!

In future, she'll be handy for delivering the sort of harsh reality observations that the rest of the cast lack.

Books? Oh, Em Gee. Gross.

I find it really funny that being a "geek" is now considered totally cool. Young folks make a big thing out of reading books and are proud to announce themselves as introverted, socially awkward geeks. It's the "in" thing. I can remember being teased just for reading, and for wanting to read instead of play sports. It's sometimes amazing how times have changed...

Worse than reading a book in my day... Try being in the Chess Club, and playing D&D. You could count all your friends on one hand. They were easy to find too, most of them were stuffed into their gym lockers.

I was in our school's D&D club too, at least briefly, but the local churches all complained to the school that we were promoting Satanism and the school shut our club down. The joys of life in the Bible Belt...

Word balloons are showing a ton of personality and helping to convey the emotions. Great job and I'm still in favor of your colors scheme.

Thanks! Hand lettering is a pain, but I am enjoying being able to put more character into every dialog balloon. It's weird, because now when I read font dialog balloons they all come across as a bit cold and monotone, to me. But they're SO much easier to deal with...

I think the text/bubbles is as much art as the art itself. You can express so much with a thought or speech bubble. The shape, the color of it, so many things.

I agree. It's funny, though, it really wasn't something I thought about much until I'd used vector bubbles and typed fonts for a good while. I really started getting conscious of how "samey" it looked.
