– Very often I’ll change the dialogue in a strip while I’m lettering it. Sometimes this will just be simple rewording to make some text fit better, but every now and then I come up with a better punchline. That’s what happened here. Originally, the punchline was that Jake wouldn’t even notice they were wearing costumes to begin with. But then I switched the focus to Charles, and the idea that Modest though his glasses would give him a special detection advantage was funny.
Of course, re-writing dialogue as I’m letter is how I get typos.
