Something sure isn’t right here…
This was not on my bingo card. :)
I guess that’s my point – the main character is Luann. Bernice and others are largely side characters to flesh out the comic. There will be periods where they will “come and go” because a new arc replaces their involvement in the comic.
It’s true that Greg and Karen can revisit Bernice and Nil’s arc. But this one will end before the week is done. I’m not expecting Nil to have anything more to say except that he doesn’t like Bernice’s new look and wants her to change back. How will Bernice react to it given she seems to embrace both the idea and “look” of a muse. I’m curious to see how the duo – both authors and characters – play this out by Friday.
I’m a bit amazed at some of the comments that come up in a three-panel comic such as this one. It’s easy to get involved.
For my part, I guess I’m disappointed at how this arc could end. It HAS to end and move on to the next one, but it’s unfortunate that it has to be written in such a way that makes both characters less dimensional – for lack of a better word. Nil is going to reject Bernice’s new look. Bernice will be disappointed. The question is how they will grow from it.
I don’t envy Greg – it is quite tough to be a comic author of a series like this. It’s rare you get the chance for them to really grow and permanently change, like the Toni and Brad arc.
It’s kind of interesting, if we’re to comment on such things. Bern looks pretty dressed in these clothes, considering – as implied in the previous strip – that she chose the outfit combination herself. I like the hat with matching black accent, black choker, yarn-like dress and boots. The second panel is also a nice pose – fun and a bit charming.
While I get that the story has a predictable lesson in Nil “seeing her previous appearance as his true muse”, I appreciate that she/the author tried something different. I’d like to see her gradually evolve as a character with this style in mind. It could add a bit of dimension to her personality over time, where she learns to relax some. Maybe that’s Greg’s intent, maybe not, but I like it.
I agree it’s not a fast moving story. Just that the new long format doesn’t work well with the comics.com site. If there was somewhere else to view in original resolution, I’d prefer that.
I’m not a fan of the new format when presented in comics.com. It’s too small to read!
How about splitting the comics panes up across multiple days like before, so things appear larger?
Unfortunately that is updated even less often, like 2015. :P
I appreciate getting Endtown at least once a week, but this new long format makes it difficult to read here. Is there somewhere else one can read this comic?
“I saw we press his reset button”. Seriously, this turn of events just plain crazy and cool. Can’t wait to see what happens next.
