Doctor Quackenbush? That makes me think about Groucho Marx and his brothers in that film xD I can watch that film twenty times and still laugh as much as the first time. (Excuse my English, it's my thrind language)
Tracy, I've been following Lackadaisy for years now, and I've just gone back to re-read them in order on your website, and I have to tell you that I just about did a backflip of joy over the Marx Brothers reference. Somehow I missed that before. Thank you for being so freaking awesome.
Lovely, and hardly boring. One needs these pages to explain where the story goes and how it's going to get there. I agree on the facial expressions - they make the characters very easy to get attached to. Pepper is a darling, and the whole thing really reads super well.
Woo for Marx brothers references! Also, woo for those of us who say woo for them! Poor Wick, he just can't keep up. Gotta love the 'That's a new one...' face. I hate to say i make that face when people say stupid things and ask stupid questions. >> *shifty eyes*
Hee, I thought I liked Ivy before, but now I know I do! I'll have to check, but I'm pretty sure your artwork just keeps getting better and better. Can't believe I'm not paying to see this, feel like I'm ripping you off...
I will treasure that quote forever . . . woop, better make sure I got it right now. -checks- Oh, it's umm, not um. -takes mental note-
Yay. I love everything about this comic, which reminds me I want to buy it . . . hmmmm . . . . and my bank account is getting re-activated after some dumbass supervisor put it on hold and even more incredibly dumbass cretin underlings to that supervisor couldn't figure out what was going on so it took a whole month of no access to MY money and I still don't know that its fixed. But if it is, I will make sure some of my money goes to you in exchange for that splendid masterpiece you keep making . . . though I'm sure some will probably end up going to some other third party or other, as things go.
That was...left field, but not unappreciated. The only thing I'd say about this strip is that it devolves into talking heads somewhat after the halfway mark. The wide shots you give us are extremely nice, and while I guess drawing the car every time must be time consuming, they do break up the heavy text and give us atmosphere and context. My criticism, such as it is, would be to nudge you back in that cinematic direction and thus keep the pace of the strip a little more consistent.
