D'aw, look at that smile Lillian has on that third panel. She's growing fond of those goofs!

The word bubbles aren't great in that first strip! They cross each others' paths, and it's not clear enough who says what, though once you see the characters' attitude you can tell which says what, but it shouldn't be a puzzle for the reader to solve. Ideally, the reader shouldn't even have to think about how they read the comic, only what happens in the world that the comic is depicting. That's what immersion is :)

For me, the best book experiences are when I truly feel immersed in another world, usually fantasy or sci-fi to really travel to another universe. These days I'm reading the well-known Dune from Frank Herbert, I've been meaning to read it for a while and so far, so excellent! I really dig Frank's style of writing. And it feels so nice to feel my mind escape to another world especially nowadays, when our society shows more and more explicitly its darker contours. The problems were always there, the virus is just showing them more clearly :) (yayyyy)

But let's get back to Roomie and Lillian, sitting in a bar, K-I-S-S-I-N... um wait, let's not get ahead of ourselves. That doesn't happen for another fifty years amiright? ;)

--> This is a rerun of the finished webcomic Go Get a Roomie! You can find these two strips in the old archive >here<!
