Having An Old Friend For Dinner

8

I’m not ready yet to start in on a proper story arc (although I have the first one scripted and am photographing it), but I thought I’d break up the monotony of the “tours” with a couple self-contained strips.

I’m trying to build personalities for each of my characters within the strip.  Jonathan Swift is very much out of place in this time period (more so than the others), but his satirical wit (and Modest Proposal references) were just too good to pass up.  I have a story arc planned involving him for that reason.

I’m also interested in whether or not you think that Oscar’s figuratively raised eyebrow in cell 7 comes across, lending a wry sarcasm to his tone in cell 8.
