Epilog Week continues!

Three tigers? There were only two in the cage of the secret trailer. There are only two in panel 3. So where is that third cub? Anyway, we see that ol’ Rex is sure quick on the rebound.

Regarding Rivera’s new technique of “recap balloons”, as I’m temporarily calling them, I notice that she uses the standard quotation format of only adding closed quotation marks to the last consecutive “paragraph” (panels 3 and 4), as seen in the panel 4 recap balloon. Noteworthy from a grammatical point of view, perhaps, but it looks awkward in a comic strip. Few readers would even get it or appreciate it. Putting close quotes in every recap balloon would look more consistent.

Still wondering about Diana Daggers!
