The joke only half-works here. It's a challenging task writing storylines in strip form, because you have to progress the plot and be funny at the same time. The attempt here was to make the joke coincide with the introduction of a new plot point at the end and connect the two simultaneous stories, but I found it hard to tie the two together in a non-awkward way. Oh well, I'll get 'em next time.
Happy Thanksgiving! I appreciate and am thankful for you all!

I had the same difficulties as the previous strip in figuring out the right compositions inside the car, but this time it was a little easier. More importantly, what is Billy thinking??

Interiors of cars are quite difficult to draw, it turns out. And it's especially challenging to fit a wide-angled perspective within such a cramped location; I have to stray from the actual design of a car to show all the necessary visual information. For example, in the third panel, in order for the gas pedal to be seen, there is nothing shown between the seats of the car, so that the "camera" can placed there. It's pretty fun working out how to fit everything into the constraints of a comic panel.

The story continues! I must say, drawing cars is beginning to get tedious at this point. And I'm still not even that good at drawing them. Nevertheless, the road-trip series must go on.
