I am publishing this strip if only for it to serve as a lesson for other comic creators. I thought multiple bubbles would express laboured breathing, but, apparently, what i have expressed instead looks like, well, not that. He. Is. At. Least. Saying. His. Words. Slowly. But beyond that I think it’s more sort of, “Hold on, I need to nap. Right here. Right now. On this side walk.” Why would anyone be running away from that? “Oh, fuck, he’s about to nap. I’d better get out of here.” Sometimes I worry I don’t know what I’m doing, and then I create a comic that proves it.
