Thank you Ryan for your feedback!
I agree that parts of the comic don’t have as much ethos as they could. Our initial idea for the narrator was to use a librarian because that is a common representation of the humanities. However, when I tried to draw the librarian, adding glasses was difficult for me. I think the current narrator still looks like a student. But now that I am thinking about it, we could add ‘WPI’ to her shirt to create a stronger connection with the audience. I have never heard of XKCD before, but I looked them up and it looks like an interesting comic.
We plan to produce this comic in the form of a pamphlet/small book. In the draft I used 8 ½’’ x 11’’ paper folded in half. Currently, the layout shown in my post will be very similar to the final layout.
