WARNING: ARTIST RANT AHEAD! So, I'm annoyed by this page, because I made a pretty poor choice and didn't realize it until it was too late to start over. Jenna's "Here's what we do" speech shouldn't be a single wad of text in one balloon. This page should have been one of those things where the middle is a big white void full of text and little doodles. That way, we could actually SEE this Dr. Kroganon and his "globe things" and whatever the heck an Icesmith is. You know, since comics are supposed to have PICTURES instead of just words.

Then again, it's not like any of that stuff is what this page is actually ABOUT. That whole spiel is really to give Augusta a reason to praise Jenna, thus proving that it isn't only Megaweapon she fawns over. Heck, in the rough draft, I didn't even try to come up with dialog for that speech bubble. I just penciled in "Jenna solves everything" really big to fill in the space.

Anyway, I DO like seeing what Jenna's like when she ISN'T being a total doormat. We've already seen that she likes helping people, but now we know she's actually super competent at it!

OH! And lest I forget, New Voting Incentive!

Their mother seems a bit absent minded.

At least we see another Jenna hug. Jenna needs more hugs, more often.


Concerning white void doodle thing - I like the top and bottom panels, as well as the mum's "Oh Goodness!" reaction, so I'd think still having those with the textual doodle void in the middle.
Hmm... If I have time sometime and I remember, I might try and move around stuff in that image to make something up like that to see what it might look like.
Maybe.

Incentive:
I bet he's off to visit Skye.
...Or just came back from a visit.

Yeah, those are the parts I was focusing on. The middle was kind of an afterthought.

Also, how much you wanna bet Trigger bought some cheap, tacky "Hippy" Halloween costume, thinking Skye would be impressed by it? :)

That is totally something Trigger would do.

Honestly, our imaginations should be better at filling those blanks than what a drawing would be like. And, NO, I am NOT insulting your artwork. It's just that pictures focus an image into, well, a specific image, while imagination has no boundaries.

For example, Dr. Kroganon's "big globe things": They could be either the size of a person, the size of a small room, OR the size of a human head and there's 100,000 of them. The words don't tell us, but a picture would limit our mental image to be the same as what yours is, and that's less fun.

I guess it all depends on whether or not the thing being talked about is actually plot-relevant or not. Not to rag on the imagination of the reader or anything, but if the globe things were to end up being important to the story, then Mr. Storyteller over here really does need to paint a definitive picture of them, otherwise later events involving them won't make a lot of sense.

BUT, as I said (spoiled) earlier, this plot isn't actually about those things at all. So I guess there's no harm in letting the imagination run wild on this one.
