I’ll have to switch to inhumanual.
This is more tragic than usual.
It’s inhuman to have a comic where the characters never ever listen to one another.
@Jim I’d make a “Parallel Distributed Conversations” joke, but… ummm… yeah.
The parallel conversations between characters holds the message of a lot of C&G comics.
Poor comment bot!
They listened to each other for the first three panels. That’s more than usual.
And I quite like that tendency, because I feel it represents a real conversation more effectively, where everyone is just looking for a chance to say what they want to say. A direct, logical back-and-forth dialogue is an interview, or an interrogation.
Or is it that they are always listening to each other, but only responding to themselves?
Same goes for civilization, the most brutal wars have civilized combatants.
