It took longer then expected to get this page edited on the computer. I am still new to gimp so I must have been doing something wrong but for the life of me I couldn’t figure out what. One time X worded and in the next panel it didn’t. At one point every time I tried to move panel 3 it kept moving panel 2 instead. Eventually I got it to move 1 and 2 and I did it backwards. Anyway after all that and the problems with the new half backgrounds I figured out I wasn’t going to have enough room for text in panel 2. normally I would mess with the size of the figure and make room but I didn’t want to spend another hour working at it when it was this late already. Hopefully I did something to the panels and it wont happen with the next comic and I put the text where I want. For now though I get to see if text is readable over a character or if its too distracting. I kind of wanted to obscure her shirt anyway and I can read the text but I already know what it says. Let me know what you think if its not too much trouble. If it is then thank you for just reading the comic thanks to you I made a new record of page views for father's day.


The text is still readable, but I think the joke would have been better if you had copied and pasted even more. Like maybe three of the same panels in a row. But that's just my opinion.

Also remember to spellcheck. That "out" in the last panel should be "our".

spell check is not my friend. that and i know what the dialogue is suppose to say so its hard to see if it actually says it or not. If anyone catches an error though i will be sure to correct it asap. to that end if you could make any spell check comments in a separate comment i can delete them once they are no longer valid and still leave the rest of your comment there.

as for the joke itself it has hard enough to make one drawings work for two different panels, i am not sure if it would have worked as well for three. i also wanted her to notice right away since the reader probably noticed before she began speaking in panel 4. also while copying is a bit funny i know it can be overdone very easily and i didn't want to push it. thanks for your opinion though im always looking to improve but i only have my own ideas of what is funny and the comments of readers to let me know how well i am doing.
