Comic for Friday, Nov 27, 2015

I had some difficulty with the staging of this comic. I felt Grace's abruptness, follow-through, and lack of modesty was key to the comedy here, but there's also only so much I'm comfortable with, and it's really easy to make something like this too blatant. Heck, anyone other than Grace, and I wouldn't even consider this.

For a while, I thought I'd have to make Sarah and Ellen successful at getting Grace to stop, but the solution was as simple as making it four panels instead of three (panels 2-3 were originally one panel), and having Grace cross her arms in the last panel. I think it would be funnier if her hands were still on her hips, but none of the speech bubbles worked there, and I really don't want to go into full Austin Powers gag mode.
