Speech bubbles! I decided I couldn’t escape that little thing called dialogue and so had to learn how to make speech bubbles in GIMP. So excuse the errors with the pointer thingies that show who’s talking, I’m still learning this thing. There’s a fair few aliasing issues I need to look at and before I’m really happy with my speech bubbles.

I decided to break from the seriousness of the comic in the last panel simply because I was getting sick to death of posing all the ragdolls and needed something to keep me doing it. As soon as I thought of the last panel’s line I was inspired to keep going, because I could pose badly and pretend there was a good reason for it.

Also, excuse the awful “What in Xen” line in panel 4. It’s supposed to be like the phrase “What on earth” but it really doesn’t seem to work that well.
