    Can’t read it-the prints tooo teeeeny. Probably
    a size 8 font or smaller. How come this strip
    does this? Only one I’ve seen with this problem,
    even after you enlarge it.

    Because it was drawn for newspapers, when the sunday funnies would use a half of a page for each.

    They would need to make the word balloons bigger, and cover up important items in the background.

    I believe in P3 that last phrase is Hersh Kisses. But then in P8, there’s something I can’t make out in Annie’s balloon: "Poor [kid?], suddenly one day her whole life just gets torn apart on her… " Even with magnification, it can still be difficult to decipher, so I too appreciation the transcriptions.

    I had trouble with those same two panels, but I think Leonora’s got it.

    Thanks, David!
    But since we can’t make the comic both bigger and more clear …

    How do you do that!?!?
