Love the last frame all by itself.
Thank you for helping me clarify in my mind why I knew this killing was so wrong.I'm 62,female,and white.I've never really had to deal with prejudice like this.Sometimes the fear of being a woman out at night by herself,but not every day harassment.Thank you so much for your strip.I love it.
I don't know if anyone has brought this up, but are you familiar with the concept of the Psychopomp? The deliverer of the souls of the dead to the underworld. You have Lemont acting as a psychopomp in his dreams. And this is the first time i have ever been able to use the word "psychopomp" in an actual conversation, every other time I was able to use it it was in a story along the same lines as that M. Night Shamalan movie with the kid that saw dead people.
Thanks for your touching messages in your strips. And unfortunately, the gen. public is not being informed that the "stand your ground" law does not apply to this case b/c of the victim's age. Not many people have the time, energy or concern to research the law & whether or not it's been followed. Hopefully, this fact and the fact that Trayvon called 911 right before his death will come out b/c they are these are key game changing pieces of information.
From the standpoint of an outsider (German) the word "killer" is very strong. I know that you would not want to use "murderer", because that would be prejudgemental. But "killer" – although correct and supported by the facts – also carries the co-notation of "serial killer" and all that. I don't know of a word in the english language that can describe a person who killed another person WITHOUT that co-notation. Does anybody? And, no, i am not defending George Zimmerman or what he did, i just need syntactical guideance…
