Trapped in the Closet

And here we are, the final page LotH launched with. This was the big tweest to get you interested in the series. Unfortunately, it comes before nearly anything about Jill is established, and I’d eventually have to undo it a little to give Jill a goal, but the story hasn’t gone off the rails quite yet.
I don’t have as much to say about this page as the first two, but I like that Jill getting out of bed takes six whole panels. We’ve all been there. Decompressed storytelling isn’t a thing that I do often enough, but back then I wasn’t the chump paying the pagerates so I felt less pressure to cram as much stuff into a page as possible, and letting this moment breathe did a lot to establish Jill’s character. I should do that kind of thing more.
Jill’s brand of cigarettes, Toasted Smokes, is I think a reference to Mad Men.Tags
