The idea for this page, primarily panel 3, was came up with on a long train journey to a University in Scarborough. I wound up coming up with 8 scripts that day. I also almost missed my station. Yaaay.
PLOTHOLE: In the beginning of the comic Shelia said that taking away Rupphs beers would be the same as not paying her employees, but just recently she threatened to ban her from drinking if she got in another fight. There are two solutions to this.
The first is that Shelia stopped giving a shit about paying her employees. The second is that it was only a threat to stop her fighting and she had no intention of carrying it out.
@Floo: I guess all that depends on whether or not you took Shelia word for word and actually believe that a single person alone can keep a pub running, or if she was exaggerating her point to note how much money Rupph actually bought in. Either way, if you high-paying customer tends to break stuff you have to pay for, then what use is that?
There're two key things to remember - not everyone in the world says everything exactly to the word what they say, especially when emphasising a point, and when running for money, you still got to weigh up the cons even with the big pros.
As an layout con-crit, I'd have had the speech boxes slot closer together in panel 3. "Are you sick" and "Is it rabies" should and easily could slot in better with Leo's comments, and that would help it read fluidly. The suggestion, I assume, is that they say it quite fast and a little paranoid, if that's the right word, but flicking from one side of the panel to the other makes it disjointed.
Your coloured panels mean there wouldn't be a problem with who says what in a mesh of speech :3
