Hereville here.

This is a special Monday page to make up for the page I missed the week before last. Page 26 will be posted sometime on Thursday. (Not Tuesday as I originally posted!)

    I really must thank you for the kind arrow explaining the alarm clock.
    I never would have figured that out on my own.
    but then, things wrapped in things are generally hard to spot as what they are. that being the point of wrapping gifts.

    I’ll also take the opprotunity to thank you for actually making up for a lost issue. many webcomic artists wouldn’t bother. and considering how much work you put into each page, a monday/thursday schedule is a bit of work.

    bravo, amp.

    I love the cleverness of the alarm wrapped in a sock. I can’t wait to see what happens next.

    color me mystefied: is this one supposed to be before the last one posted (which already put Mirka and her brother outdoors somewhere)?

    The first panel, showing the moon in the night sky, was meant to indicate that time passed. Did anyone else have trouble with this? If so, I might add a “that night…” caption to the first panel.

    I don’t think it’ll be necessary when the pages are read one after another, and you’ve already got the caption for the alarm clock. On the other hand, a “That night…” caption might make the alarm clock caption a little less of an irruption. (I like it, but the propensity of modern comics to eschew all manner of captions and narration leaves me stumbling over them a little. Which is strange: the caption box is a perfectly useful tool, with a long and respectable history in comics. Show, don’t tell can be carried to extremes like anything else. –I blame television.)

    Yeah, I worried about that a little. But to “show, not tell” the clock would have required four panels (1. Mirka holding clock and stocking 2. Mirka stuffing clock into stocking 3. Mirka going to sleep or a “time passes” panel of some sort 4. The alarm clock going off), and it just didn’t seem worth taking up that much space just to avoid using a caption.

    And, as you said, I kinda wanted to reclaim the caption as a legitimate tool. (There are actually a lot of captions in Hereville so far, although I think this is the first arrow-caption I’ve used.).

    maybe my problem is less with the late-nightness of this panel than with the former panel, which I now guess is about a _plan_ to sneak out (later), while I thought that it was about the sneaking-out _underway_…

    (or I could be dense. not without precedent. ;)
