Don't worry, they're all just fine. The solid rock broke their fall.

I've recently stopped using sound effects in my own comics, since I realized they'd become a crutch to avoid letting the drawings' sense of motion speak for itself. However, they can still be very useful, as you show with that big WHAM! Something only comics can do, really.

@NitztheBloody: You know, that's an excellent point, sound effects can become a crutch. On the other hand, though, I've seen comics that work the visual style of the sound effects into the page's overall appearance, and that's really effective too. I'm more interested in trying to utilize that idea, but I certainly agree that casual, unstyled sound effects can be a bit bland.

@melaredblu: I'm a firm believer in sound effects. Bu they need to work as part of the art, just like word balloons.

@GroovyKinda: Oh boy. I guess I made the transition too abrupt. Sonny's reaction was to realizing June wasn't on the vacuum with them. Meanwhile, Cordelia was flying too fast and crashed. The thing she's holding on the last panel is indeed the vacuum, reverted to its wand form and totally busted.
Well, at least they crashed into... something.
"Houston, we have a problem." Uh, make that several problems.

@Hjels: You're probably right. For an empty void, there sure is a lot of clutter hanging around.

@Delta-v: I'm happy you like her pose, because I have a feeling May herself isn't terribly enchanted by it.
@melaredblu: That's just because she doesn't have our sense of humor.
