My brother used to call me a punk. He did when I visited last Christmas too, and I was freaking 29 at the time!

Also, did you know in written format, using numerical characters is inappropriate? That should have read 'I was freaking twenty-nine at the time!'. But I didn't do that. Because you don't own me. Screw you, basic rules of English writing!

Oh, right, the comic. Aren't they all being so amicable? I like that. I like that they are getting close again.

Oh, and you have my permission to (2) go ahead and overanalyze the two (2) last frames too (2).

4 the last time: the rule is 2 write nos up 2 the number nine, then use numerals from 10 onwards but you have to be consistent in a sentence like 'his dog ate two of my ten hats'.
I have found it strange the way Bill turned around his attitude - I've not found that to be the case IRL but, I'm glad he has. Maybe because he isn't older because older people seem to have a struggle changing their ideas?
Should I be analysing your art more?? I like it

@stickygirl: Perhaps I was taught differently. What is your source on the numbers thing? I'd love to start doing things right if'n I have been borking it up thus far.

Generally near-death experiences turn people's minds when they are already on the fence. Thing is, Bill was never against Annie, only against her having a bad life. Given how brutal her life had been, can you blame him for wanting to stop her from going down that road?
Then seeing someone else literally do what he had been doing, but with hate instead of misguided protection, that had to have served as a wakeup call.

Peoples mind can change. I can't remember if I mentioned it here before, but when I worked at EA, one of my bosses/coworkers and I were working on the weekend for some huge overtime. During a break, we were having a fun conversation and he went off on a very homophobic tangent. Here I am, alone with this dude who doesn't know I'm trans, and suddenly I am in a situation where this guy is a credible threat.
Anyways, my employment, um, "ended" shortly thereafter. Turns out a few years down the road that he had some encounters around Vancouver and it very much changed his mind. He went from a raging homophobe to a man who went out of his way to find me and apologize to me when he had no reason to.
My point is, it is possible for people to change their minds, given something even so banal as time. Now imagine them seeing their words actually come to action - it can't be easy to cope with.

You should be analyzing the actual art as much as you want. The graphical presentation of Annie's story is never going to be "good", of course, but I can at least try to improve, right?
Unless you mean analyze the topics held within, in which case, yes! Straight up, yes, analyze the heck out of it, I would love to get opinions of what people think is implausible or outlandish or just doesn't make sense. Or what is not pleasant but important, or pleasant but irrelevant, or any combination thereof.

I sincerely hope Panel 4 isn't foreshadowing...
