Broken Dreams – Ep. 13


I patterned Acey Spades off the classic Humphrey Bogart detectives. What’s your favorite Bogart movie?

  1. This one is up for discussion. I found the second panel to be funny. I (almost) always read text-balloons from different characters from left to right (and I’m under the impression that is an (unwritten?) rule). So Acey gives the cops a knife, tells them it’s the murder weapon and then the cops ask him what it is (as if these cops can’t even recognize a knife).

    1. No, you’re right. I hoped that having the cop’s bubble on top would have his read first, but it wasn’t as foolproof as I wanted. It was a tight panel, and getting it in there without covering up pieces of the image annoyingly was tough.
