Each and every day a comic strip abuses the use of the silent second-to-last panel.

I thought the same thing about Lio, pretty much.
Today's "The Humble Stumble" also had a SPP.
...by "today's," I meant the Sunday strip.
Well, Humble Stumble does include a sound effect… Because I just returned from Chicago, I noticed a strip I’d never seen before, namely Watch Your Head, and lo and behold, yesterday’s strip features an SPP. Thank goodness I have a place to report it.
Sunday's Curtis had a pretty useless one to. If the kid's going to be surprised in the last panel, there's no reason for him to stop and think about it in the penultimate panel.
This is late in coming, but Ces has had troubles updating Medium Large of late. Check out this SAPP. I'm pretty sure most cartoonists would have switched panels 2 and 3. they might even have been right in this case.
Wow. They have a web page dedicated to reporting when a cartoonist uses a pause panel!In real life, I sometimes have to think a second before I open my mouth. I find I get fewer punches in the face that way.Cheers!~Roy Schneider, "The Humble Stumble"
