One of my main worries is whether readers think the strip is threading water. It's got to the point where I'm second-guessing myself with increasing frequency.
This strip is a result of this torturous introspection.

In the first panel, Andrew's jaw is locked to a degree which makes him look like an American Indian. I liked the effect, so I stuck with it.
