Cartooning Tips ‘n’ Tricks!
Q: How do you ensure your readers will not interpret a “ghost” literally?
A: Make one of your characters quote Charlie Brown in the next panel.
Not yet, my friend. Sit tight.
Much though I have enjoyed this story – especially the confrontations between Blanchard and his son – isn't it a bit odd that a man should investigate a major accident in which people he knows were involved, least of all his own father? Aaron is the son of the designer and has worked with Robinson, captain of the crashed vessel; such connections would quite frankly make him unsuitable for such an enquiry.
Admittedly yes, that is a problematic hole in this storyline. Logically it's unlikely that this situation would have played out this way (even disregarding Aaron's involvement, why in the world would they send Robinson's ship on this mission?), but it does make a good stage for drama. In my defense, this whole thing was set up by the U.S. government, which doesn't really have a reputation for doing things right. In any case, thanks for being a critical reader… helps encourage me to try harder!
A more better ending should have been like this: "I need all the friends I can get…now lets get our act together, write a book about this and sue our former employers! We'll make millions!"
