One


Well, it looks like just one today:

La Cucaracha by Lalo Alcaraz

After avoiding the watch for months, La Cucaracha has been appearing more frequently. SPPs come in waves.

And we have another very quick post. Some evenings are busier than others.

Have you noticed that the images posted on the official For Better of For Worse website are animated recently? Check it out with today's: http://www.fborfw.com/strip_fix/archives/001919.php

It's creepy and weird. They blink, but they don't otherwise move. The drop falling from the girl's boat is frozen in space and time, but in the next panel she blinks. Perhaps the strangest aspect is the timing. They animate whatever panel they expect you to be looking at, so there is an ideal comics reading speed which is sort of enforced.

I can't tell if it's clever or if comics and animated cartoons must be kept separate. I've never seen an animated comic that really works. Maybe this subtlety is the way to do it. But why do it at all?
