His poor, poor mother. And poor innocent Frankie. And his poor dad. And all in all... war sucks. But Frankie, that was a damn fool thing to do!

I love the layout. The black, dripping middle panel has a great impact. As does Frankie with his reflection.

I like the dripping panel of Frankie's mom, too. Dunno who I stole that idea from, but I think it works. :P

First, last bit of dialogue made me lol.

Second, central panel is amazing use of facial expression, it had a lot of impact.

Thirdly, the last panel had the most impact for me, seeing Frankie with his military hair, smiling in ante-bellum innocence, still so Frankie, but still so far from the Frankie that will come out of the Argonne in a year and a half's time.

Thanks much! It's the result of direct-to-ink sketching...but if I draft it in pencil first, I think it ends up looking WORSE, so I'm glad you like it this way! :)

Centre panel. Just... centre panel. It's like the living proof no one wanted that sometimes you don't even need to travel to 1917 France to get shell-shocked.
Also, I'm bowing to your henscratching and, later when it's less hot, building an altar to it and sacrificing a pidgeon.

Hot there too, eh? It's been hot and humid here for weeks--I'm beginning to feel like Jonah in the whale.

Poor Frankie's Mom. Between the 1920's and her son, she's gonna be one of the most shell-shocked people in the book...

It's summer for you. That time of the year when Germans on vacation come to crowd our beaches, and I come in peace to bother them with my horrible spoken German. (For the record, there's also a thriving colony of French people, but speaking THAT language is safely out of my league.)

WOOOOT horrible spoken German! Alas for me, the only tourists in Vermont are from Quebec, and if you thought speaking/understanding NORMAL French was bad, try Quebecois...
