Panel one: I love how, whenever anything is described as really good in this strip it's "amazing". One month to go until the big freeze and now you establish that Gerald is a great drummer? This band has been together for, what? six years now? I love how they tell and never show anything anymore. Btw, Apes, I don't care how good a drummer is, he can't make up for the rest of the band. Whether or not you want to admit it, they have talent too!
Panel two: another long shot. I'm getting a vague sense of loneliness from April.
Panel three and four: April, you spent years hating Becky because she became famous, I don't believe for a second that you suddenly switched sides. You'd be jealous, even if you don't really want to be famous. I really wish I could see her face in panel three. If she looked like she was hiding hurt, I'd buy it. And one more thing, does Eva care about April? Or just the band?
Panel five: Oooh, could this be the end of April 'n Gerald 4-ever? Gods I hope so! I never liked Gerald. He's insensitive and oblivious to those around him. On the other hand, I really don't want them to break up without April realizing what a selfish jerk he is. Because that means there's a good chance they'll get back together just like Liz and Anthony, only via future retcons. *barf*
Overall the Artwork isn't too bad but I really don't like all the long shots we've been seeing since the week began. I'm getting a sense of loneliness. It looks like the telethon is going to wrap up April's part in foob forever. I don't want that. I want to see her since I think she's one of the more interesting characters left. However, it might be a good thing since it leaves the hope that her character will remain unassassinated.
