I woke up yesterday morning, having been up WAY too late and not properly rested, and I had NO IDEA what I was going to do for the this comic.
Well, that's hyperbole. I knew I wanted Susan to make progress, which meant being on the ship and shrinking. I just wasn't sure how I was going to go about it.
Then this happened somehow. The first three lines, ending with "feet", popped into my head while I was considering narration as an option. I initially thought it would just be three lines for three panels, but it just kept getting longer.
The decision to not have her halo shrink with her happened while drawing the third panel. I guess it technically counts as a hat.
