  1. I hate it when artists flip artwork for little or no reason. It is even worse in this case, since the wings belong over the left breast pocket. I have to wonder if it is a conspiracy against dyslexics–or maybe the artist has dyslexia and can’t see the wrongness?

    • Robert, you’re absolutely right that flipping the art here was wrong. I’ve redone the panel with the art flipped back and I’ve posted it here.

      I used this art once before for a different gag and I flipped the art then because I had both characters talking. The man was the first person to speak and I wanted him on on the left so that you’d have a left-to-right flow of dialogue. That’s generally what readers expect and most letterers prefer to have the dialogue read left-to-right.

      Unfortunately, I didn’t notice the wings when I flipped the art the first time I used it. And I forgot the panel had been flipped when I used it this time. Thanks for bringing this to my attention.
