“…this is the first comic page I’ve ever seen that’s made ENTIRELY of reaction images” (The Indomitable Eric).

I should have talked more with Erica about the kinds of page layouts she preferred, maybe. This is another example of her revisions: these last four panels were originally two two-shots. A lot of times I tried to hold myself to four or five panels on the theory that this would be easier for her, but she came to prefer more for moments like this. Bandit also originally had about six more “dudes” in her closing speech to Gravedust here.

Erica normally eschews repeated artwork, but in this scene, it was pretty much necessary for Gravedust’s eyebrow moment. She drew an original version of panel 6, but it just didn’t work as well as what you see here.
