The image of Summer hanging out at home while surrounded by her Lisa videos is one of the more disturbing FW scenes I can remember, right up there with those faces you can sometimes see when TomBan draws gigantic asses. No wonder she’s shunned by the cool kids (and apparently everyone else too). I especially like panel two, where she’s literally watching a DVD in the truest sense of the term. Simply groundbreaking.
And it’s “fireworks factory” syndrome again as BanTom shamelessly draws out his “story” with a few profound silent panels. Everything involving Lisa is treated with such intense gravitas and profoundity with all sorts of seriousness and pondering. And I guarantee when he FINALLY gets to whatever it is on those DVDs that merits all this angst it’ll be the sappiest bunch of crap you’ve ever seen.
“Hey Cayla, got a minute?”. That’s up there with “hey Funky, you hungry?” or “hey Owen, wanna read comic books?” or “hey Les, wanna act like a smug annoying jerk?”. I mean of COURSE she has a minute, especially if it’s to remind everyone that she’s just Les’ second insignificant wife and not the one who died. This is already hands-down the most annoying arc of the year and they haven’t even played the f*cking DVDs yet.
