Compression Is Our Business.

Click on the images for larger versions if you need em.

Take a page and make more room for the STORY! Oh, and make Hawkgirl's tits smaller, please.

Did we lose anything by cutting those panels? No.

Thanks, Greg!


  • Just a note to let you know that i really enjoy your podcast. I appreciate that you obviously enjoy and geek-out on comics, but that doesn't mean you have to put up with their lowest common denominator tendencies.

    The episode with your brother was one of my favorite episodes to date. (I was going to comment in that post but the comments were broken.) My older brother got me hooked on comics too, so it was a nice nostalgic romp through sibling fandom.

    I appreciate your unique voice in the comics podcast world and look forward to future episodes.

  • Gotta say, in the example given, a lot of the pacing is lost by the compression of these panels. It's about the intonation, the emphasis that the characters are putting on certain words and sentences. Hence when the dialogue is compressed, the 'delivery' comes off as flat, as if the characters are rattling off the words.
