This one continues the storyline in which a woman deals with first her boyfriend’s suicide threats and then his suicide after she decides to leave him. It’s now on it’s third act, survivor’s guilt. It’s been a while since I went to this series — 10 months — but I have really battled how to depict survivor’s guilt and that led to about a half-dozen false starts that never got past the layout stage. Sometimes it’s really difficult to condense what needs to be said into a four panel strip while leaving room for visuals and this was one of them.
Unfortunately these strips are the least loved of all the storylines. I think that’s one of the reasons I put this storyline off, because it is the trickiest to deal with and the hardest (I think) for depressed people to read, because it’s about the fallout of a depressed person’s actions.
