Breaking the fourth wall, later

It’s always fun when I can break the fourth wall!

In my Art of Comics class we’re reading Scott McCloud’s “Understanding Comics” as a textbook (first assigned book in college that I already owned!). The third chapter is all about “gutters,” those spaces in between the panels where all the action actually happens. The gutters serve as time in comics.

I love having Chuck lean across that time barrier and instantly be in “later.” Little things like that you can only do in comics.
