Wet Moon 6 page 4

Malady totally pressuring her.

i've never had beer before so i don't know anything about it so i had to do some research and consult people on what beer i should use in this scene. there were a bunch of different ones i was trying to decide between but Colt 45 was the winner, it seemed to me like the best fit.

Zia is so full of it! i like writing her a lot even though if i knew her in real life i would probably find her exasperating.

it's hard doing a scene like this and trying to suggest that there are multiple conversations going on in different parts of the room, but i thought the little indecipherable off-panel word balloons work pretty well. if it's too small to read on your monitor, Fern's balloon in the last panel says "i may be drunk..."

  1. Aww... Fern's so cute! This looks exactly like the scene from MY first swig of beer - only I wasn't being pressured into it and it wasn't a birthday party :)

  2. bless ferns heart!! I never really liked malady, shes a great character, but in real life I would punch her. loving how cute mara and cleo look though!

  3. Mara and Cleo look so cute together. :D

  4. Probably tastes like watered down horsepiss!!11 (making fun of american beer is so cliche, but I couldn't resist :I I've never tried it anyway)
    I must say, I like that Malady's and Cleo's eyes are smaller again, they just seemed to big for their faces that way. (the smaller lips on eyeryone look better too)
    The thin/long panels work so well.

  5. Awww, Fern's face makes me happy. I've always loved how well you can capture expressions and body language :D
