End of the week

Just two silent penultimate panels today, and one maybe:

Cathy by Cathy Guisewhite
The Meaning of Lila by John Forgetta and L.A. Rose

Does Baby Blues count? I decided no, because it's not a silent reaction. But, then again, it's not essential action. The strip would work just fine without it. I give it a pass today.

For the statistical minded, we have a three way tie for most SPPs this week with two each:
Non Sequitur
Pooch Cafe
The Meaning of Lila.

Add Baby Blues to that list if you count today's.

Full length update tomorrow.

Don't forget "Drabble", which has a SPP in the LAST panel!

Um, CB, I would recommend looking up the word "penultimate" in a dictionary. Or starting the Silent Ultimate Panel Watch blog yourself.

But SUPs don't occur as frequently as SPPs. At least, in the comics I read.

SUPs are indeed rare, but "SUP" is easier to say than "SPP", which usually results in a bit of saliva.

Okay, you're right that it's not a penultimate panel, but it was pretty unnecessary.

I'm still curious why Fagan split the last panel into two. It could've worked as one long 2nd panel anyway.
