    Nice touch, the rounded corner, top left.

    I miss the old tub faucets where the hot could be on a mere trickle, and keep a tub warmer during a good long soak.

    I second the compliment to the socks, since the modern elastics used in socks hadn’t been invented yet.

    I did stop for a moment at the fish-pattern nightshirt, before looking up the invention date for the Jacquard Loom.

    I can’t help but like a strip that encourages thinking about our history.

    nice tribute to one’s fellow ink-stained wretches :-)

    The above artwork was the sort of thing I saw when I looked at one of the Girl Twirl comicbooks and decided it was something to buy. No robot work (computer fonts or tone) to be seen, and the page looks better for it.

    More computer lettering. * sigh *

    This is one of the “modern developments” that made it easy to give up visits to a comic book store.

    And yes, I own some Girl Twirl comic books, and am happy about it.

    I think comics creators can be more focused on how their own lettering is imperfect than how visually jarring a computer font can be. Even a font created from one’s own hand lettering is obviously not hand lettering.

    What we see on computer screens is not perceived the same as what will appear on a printed page. Even the newspaper strips don’t compare to comic books and trade paperbacks, given how newspaper strips have shrunk in size.

    I would posit that there would be few, if any, creator’s hand lettering that would inspire a store browser to put the book back on the shelf, but the sterility of computer lettering could undo all the handwork and storytelling efforts that make Jane’s World so enjoyable, and hopefully, profitable.

    Let the pages come as they will, and we will stick around to enjoy them greatly.

    The computer lettering is a disaster. As bad as it looks here, it becomes far far worse on a printed page. This is a product that will never find buyers.
