Comic for Tuesday, May 15, 2012

- George knows OH NOES!
- Susan's reaction to George knowing
- Elliot's reaction to George knowing
- Elliot's reaction to thinking he'd put Ellen at risk
- Susan's half-truth

A word of advice: Do not threaten or otherwise endanger Ellen. Elliot will break you. Unless you're Rocky, that is. Rocky is immune to breaking and has access to robots.

The dialogue in panel six of this comic is deliberately not a whisper, but that fact has drawn my attention to the fact that the "silent pause" dialogue balloon in panel five was left in whisper form. I'm not sure what is implied by that. Was she silent beyond normal silence, supernaturally still or something?

I suspected I've done this sort of thing before and asked the same questions then. I'd remove all ambiguity by making it a non-whisper, but then I'd have less to ramble on about in this commentary, and that would be a tragedy.
