This comic contains Tedd’s first declaration of something being blasphemy, and it will not be his last.
I actually drew a separate version of this goo hunting sequence back when I was still in high school. I’ve lost track of the originals, so I’m not sure how much this version deviates, but I’m pretty sure the nets were always there. I assume “splip”, “splort”, and “sploot” were exclusive to this HD special limited edition version of those comics (and hey, now with DVD-style commentary!).
If I talked about every art thing I would do differently in these older comics, I would never stop typing, but I’m pretty sure that “swoosh” is something I’d do differently. I mean, it sorta works, but the direction it asks the reader’s eyes to go in is something of a circle. Elliot’s dialogue to “swoosh” to “sploot splat”, and then back to Elliot’s dialogue. One could read that one panel forever if they allowed themselves to do so.
