Snarky Candiru2

Monday, 13 February 2012

Today's strip is the first in a week-long arc that shows us that Elly gets creeped out by all the sounds the Pattermanse makes at night without John present to reassure her. 

(Strip Number 4298, Original Publication Date, 14 February 1983)

Panel 1: We find Elly in bed listening to the various creaking and dripping noises the Pattermanse makes at night with a look of panic on her face as she thought-bubbles that when John isn't there, every sound becomes magnified.

Panel 2: She then thought-bubbles about how weak and foolish she feels for being spooked at night because she's a grown woman and thus shouldn't be.

Panel 3: She then mulls over getting up and checking out if something strange is going on in the house.

Panel 4: She decides against it because if she has to die of fright, she'd rather do it in bed.

Summary: Well, she isn't going to lack for camera-in-my-house letters this time. A lot of people are going to remember nights alone and being creeped out.
