Marita's expression and body language in the last frame made the whole page for me! It made me laugh but it also diffused the tension and let you believe she feels in her element now. Good transition and nice Psychology 101 from Karla.

Why are you trying to be quiet? Life is short.

She asked nicely for me to be quiet. It's right there in the last panel.

OMG! I love this comic. And this is my favorite page (so far).

The work you are doing with the superhero(ine) theme in comics is amazing. It becomes this really productive device for examining gender norms about body and ability. It's a perfect blend of gritty realism and the fantastic.

And then this page, where the most mundane skills are transformed into the heroic. That plays so well with the "I've changed but I'm the same person" theme she's dealing with.

I also find the art very engaging. The brushy style in the panels is loose and flowy, which complements the story well. But the layout of each page is where you really shine. It's poetic, somehow. I love that there is often some design element peaking out from behind the panels -- a visual cue that there's always something deeper going on in this story.

Totally subbing this! What a treasure. Thank you.

Thank YOU for such a thoughtful, insightful comment. You articulate the themes with far more finesse that I've been able to.:) It always makes me so happy when the story connects with a new reader.
