Not Much Room To Talk Backfield

First | Previous | 2015-04-30 | Next | Latest

Strip by: Nyperold

Garfield: {empty thought balloon}
Garfield: Snails
Garfield: are
Garfield: slow.
Snail: {same panel} You take that back.
{beat}
{Garfield's eyes open wide as he realizes, perhaps, just who's slow around here.}

The author writes:

So my thought was, "What if it was Garfield who was slow?" So here, his thought takes an extra panel to truly get going, each word takes up its own panel, and when the snail has responded, Garfield takes a beat panel to realize that the snail, by contrast, was ready to think-speak as soon as Garfield was done, and thought all four words in one panel.
