(Reverse) Talking Heads

There are a few places (I feel "scenes" would be acceptable) in this where I could've pushed talking heads waaaay more. (Talking heads are/is an easy trick, mostly for saving time, but they don't really add anything or enrich the story. And it also doesn't help you push your abilities.)

I think I accidentally managed to use reverse talking heads; people barely saying anything in (almost needlessly) elaborate panels. Well, elaborate for me. But I think panels like that can make you take more of a nice little pause. Especially if it's in a conversation where a natural pause would be.

It seems like that's something that few people do in mainstream monthly comics, at least, that aren't copied static panels.

I can't even tell if this stuff's good anymore. (I'm not even sure good's the goal anymore, maybe idiosyncratic is a more manageable ambition.)

A veto of sorts

When I started this, one of the rules I made up was that I wasn't going to copy/paste panels. I've had decided to retract that. Ideally, I wouldn't copy/paste anything, but I sort of had to come to terms and accept that sometimes it's just a practical, time management necessity.

I'm still gonna try to keep copying to a minimum though. Notice I didn't copy the entire panel and just paste different faces.
