not-quite-animation

I know it's just good "storyboarding", but I love the 6 panel sequence starting here, where Greg and Janis are sitting on the bench.

In a traditional book form it would look OK, but flipping through them online, the way the frame automatically lines up, gave it more of a flip-book feel - sort of a rough animation that actually worked incredibly well!

I don't know if it was done that way intentionally or not - you see sequences like that all the time in comics, but never presented this way. It lent the scene an added air of reality!
When others say "Why?", I used to say, "Why not?"

Now I just say, "Who cares?"

That, and the "Gay Roommate" sequence. That was just hilarious, and it got the pause across very well. As well as the stages of Greg registering what Claire said. I love it.

The "sensible plan" comic (I'll link it later) is a little confusing to me - the lighting in the last panel, where greg's face is all in shadows except the eyes and the set of the mouth - it makes him look upset, maybe even angry, which just doesn't seem to fit with his words or his personality.

Maybe it's just an attempt at ominousness (is that a word?), but I guess we'll find out as the story unfolds further.

I belive the words you are looking for are a "preponderance of Foreshadowing."

Or how about, "ponderous foreshadowing"?
