I was trolling for new candidate clips recently and this one leaped out and begged to be written. I love eveything about this art, esepcially the skeptical expression on the groom’s face and the slightly embarassed look on Cupid’s.
Whatever is happening in the art tends to become the baseline reality of the strip for me. Though I sometimes tease with the supernatural elements then bring it back to reality, in this case there was nothing to do except to accept that this guy has had a working relationship with Cupid for some time.
Er, almost nothing. I did play with the idea of having Cupid be something like a metaphorical manifestation of the guy’s heart as he faced his doubts. That was both too difficult to write and too hard to find my way to a punchline.
