God invented hands just to make life hard for artists. They are *such* a pain in the ass to draw.

Today's comic required so much exposition, I had to design where the talk bubbles would be first, then fit the art around them. And I still didn't get to put all the expos in that I wanted to.

One obvious question is: What is the maximum amount of power JJ's time machine can hold, and if that's more than 6, why didn't she charge it up to max?

And the answer is: If something happens to her, or she otherwise loses her time machine, she wants to minimize it's usefulness to whoever finds it.

But I couldn't fit that in the already very text-crowded comic.
