Purpose: This comic is setup for the rest of the story arch, a mandatory bridge point connecting the initial incident to the resulting chaos.

Feelings: Conveying the information clearly was a challenge. How does one establish setting (return home) and action (attacked by inanimate objects) and still maintain any level of art?

Answer: Well, messing with the panels for a start. Like breaking panel two for instance, and the sense of time expressed in panel three. After all, comedy is 99.9% timing.

Initially I had a dialogue bubble of Noah (protagonist) saying (Oh well...) in panel three. I showed it to :iconthemightypegasus: and she suggested removing it entirely. It certainly creates a sense of timelessness.

Medium: Pencil and Paper
Time: Three hours

Something about the way he stands in panel 3 makes me wonder about his original gender view.

I agree with the cat. In addition to timing, the pause makes the impending catastrophe that much more spectacular.
