#422 – a good friend

Two things bug me about this page on an ongoing basis. I often wonder if Eve’s crime is serious enough to warrant a dramatic confession. When you read onto the next page, it’s clearly not. But webcomics are read page by page, and I think about building a moral consensus for the sake of story. To me, kissing someone else’s (now ex-) boyfriend years ago could go either way – it’s obviously a not-nice thing to do, but it almost qualifies as something that’s not worth admitting now, that can only possibly cause pain. At any rate, Eve is wrong about the sabotage she thinks she’s committed. The real truth Eve is hoping to cop to is that she still wants a relationship with Will, which, in the end, she doesn’t cop to at all.

The 2nd thing that bugs me is how heavy I inked panel 1. I’m not sure why I did that! Sometimes you’re just jammin’ out a panel without looking at anything around it.
