Joseph likes to think of himself as a natural born leader, but when it comes to actual management he's simply too loose-canon to really hold up under the pressure.
Marie stop being creepy
It's like almost every scene there needs to be at least one page that just fights me every step of the way. This one was full of wonky off-model looking characters that had to get redrawn a bunch of times- I usually let little instances of that slide because let's face it, consistency isn't one of my strong points, but this was coming out bad enough that even I could not bear to ignore it.
The next page is much better at least IMO.

Lunar Baboon by a lunar baboon
Click that there link to see the rest of that comic strip! It was difficult for me to find one where I could just take a panel or two out of context to use as a little promo image here because Lunar Baboon is a gag comic and it usually doesn't serve well to be broken down into smaller pieces.
I'm not a parent but I love this comic to death. If you're a person who reads webcomics, you're probably a nerd, and you're probably at least a little depressed, so even if you don't have or want kids of your own, a lot of Lunar Baboon will resonate with you. It's swiftly funny, often touching, sometimes a bit somber, but always heartfelt and a trip through the archive is sure to put a smile on your face. It's really rare to find a comedy-focused strip that doesn't resort to nastiness for humor, so this one gets extra points in my book. That's not to say there aren't poop jokes and other crudities in Lunar Baboon, but the humor is upbeat and lighthearted, a good measure self-deprecating without being self-pitying. Try your moon monkey today!
See you all tomorrow!
I have an expression pretty much like Marie in the second panel right now because I suspect Marie's grandfather's jokes were the kind of jokes that worked great when the old man told them but are going to sound hilariously awful coming from Marie. :D
And yeah, I notice it too - there's something about short scenes that makes me nervous about it. Maybe because with a long scene we sort of expect that not everything is going to be perfect but a short scene seems easier so it keeps presenting some kind of unexpected challenges. Like the scene I'm working on now is just two pages and not exactly complicated but it takes so much time...
@Oly-RRR: AHAHA I will wait for your return observation now that the next page is up :P
Yeah, I'm not quite sure what it is. It's like some weird target practice or something, I can get (what I would consider to be) a bullseye on all the surrounding pages and then just miss the mark on one of them compeletely.
How will Marie's improv skills save the day this time?
@Squirreltastic-Blue: Find out in next week's episode! Or uh, you know.
@mitchellbravo: Yeah, I... I know.
