I know I can be a wordy sonuvagun (though I’d like to think I’ve gotten better with time and experience), but I really do love strips like this that are more about economy of storytelling than how many words I can stick in a panel. Marc nailed the emotion in a big way, putting the focus on Cap in a way my script just didn’t think to do.

Long time readers will grasp the significance of the last panel right away, but for the rest of you all you need to know is in this one page from SuperFogeys Origins. Enjoy!
