I had a bunch of ideas for dialog for this one. But it seemed funnier for her to just stare for three frames. This strip was particularly challenging because of the missile "breaking the frames" between panels 5 and 6.
See, some time ago, apparently while on crack, I decided that the space between frames in C&A would be transparent. I thought I was all clever. But when something breaks frame, it becomes a major hassle. Most notably because of the way it anti-aliases to white in photoshop when I shrink, but is displayed on grey on the site. Oh well.
Of course, Strip 6 was the biggest pain in the ass on that front.
