I really enjoyed Chris Ware's Jimmy Corrigan and decided to present the action here as a succession of disjointed snapshots. This sequence also assumes a familiarity with Twitter conventions, and subjects the reader to Alex's Twitter style, which can be completely indecipherable at times. (Fortunately, in this case he didn't have the time to make it shorter. =-)

I may have overdone it.

Janiene and I spent a couple of days cutting and pasting individual panels trying to make this work. At one point it looked like I would be pushing those little paper squares around endlessly on the floor of a psychiatric ward. Finally, I had to call it good enough and let it go. The idea of barraging readers with information, and leaving them to make sense of it, is both fun and sadistic. I plan to experiment with it further.

This was also the page where Jer convinced me to stop being a perfectionist about my artwork.

The object crashing through the window is a fire extinguisher. I was informed by Amy Riddle that the windows on the monorail are shatterproof. She recommends using a crowbar.

The placeholder for Alex's Twitter avatar was the Kyon facepalm image which I use as my own avatar on various services.
