I keep forgetting that 1 in the morning isn’t “today” for most people. (But here’s today’s [or Monday’s] strip!)
Panel 3 is basically what all my thumbnail sketches look like.
I just got done reading a graphic novel series entitled Local by Brian Wood and Ryan Kelly. I seriously recommend reading it- the art is top-notch, the plot compelling, and the characters so gritty and nuanced that they are as good as real. (Fun fact: the lettering for Local was done by Brian Lee O’Malley, the guy who did Scott Pilgrim.)
