Not pictured: using the old shaving cream and feather prank to wake her up.

anybody got some needle and thread for that torn sky?

@schlissel: Shattered moon, torn sky...apparently my idea of evil is anything that hates sky things.

Okay, what's the "old shaving cream and feather" prank?
I really like your pacing in this one. June, solo, with a bit of background, then Leopold's pause, all leading up to that big panel with everyone staring into the void. Their body language is really individual and expressive, too.
And the shading and expression on Leopold in 5.

@GroovyKinda: The prank I'm referring to is when you put shaving cream on somebody's hand while they sleep then tickle their nose with a feather, causing them to itch their nose and get shaving cream all over their face. It's a classic.

@GroovyKinda: Yeah it was the fifth panel that struck me too. I got a bit of an old Soviet propaganda poster from it, with the angle and shading. Don't you just see Spiders with a hammer and sickle? :)

And you're right, the pacing is really good here.

@Hjels: Now I'm tempted to put a red filter on that panel and make a poster of it...

Hmmm. As I read Spider's words, it sounded like a proto-confession that morphed into a non-explanation, then became a no-fault description along the lines of "It just fell over", and finally became an "I tried, but you failed".

That nailed the response of a responsibility avoider, and reflects poorly on Spider's current mindset. I hope that's what you meant to do because, to me, it really adds to the flow, and I loved it. If I read it wrong, eh, it's still a powerful presentation.

@Delta-v: I admit you've analyzed the dialog a bit more thoroughly than I did. I've been thinking along those same lines, but your insight helps put that idea into much clearer terms for me. I really appreciate your feedback on this.

Yeah, that pause in panel 2 really sets it up. Leopold has a sort of "how do I put this?" or a "how much can I tell you?" kind of face.
As for the Soviet poster, well, just change the wand Cordelia's holding to a monkey wrench, and They're Boldly Marching To A Brighter Future Together.
