Per the usual, this Sunday is a big day for silent penultimate panels:
9 Chickweed Lane by Brooke McEldowney
Doonesbury by Garry Trudeau
Momma by Mel Lazarus
Pearls Before Swine by Stephan Pastis
Opus by Berkeley Breathed
Sherman's Lagoon by Jim Toomey
Take a look at today's Bo Nanas and its effective penultimate panel. It manages to fit dialog and a comic pause together. It creates just enough pause to set up the joke, but doesn't use an entire panel of silent dullness. Good use of space, Mr. Kovaleski.
I had a busy Friday and Saturday and got behind on my internet reading, and, damn, if I didn't miss some great Mark Trail moments. The Trail is always at his best when there is a bear involved--and when you add a jealous woman in lingerie, well... this is going to be awesome.
I guarantee Mark will be saving this girl from a crazed, injured bear very soon. (And in serial comics time, very soon means sometime around November.)
