Wow, I’m pretty much in love with the way the word balloons in the first panel here are arranged. It’s too bad that it doesn’t really convey any meaning — Skeezix is no closer to the foreground of the frame than the innkeeper, and I don’t think he’s supposed to be talking over him — but the sight of the two balloons suddenly occupying real space, and lying at different degrees of depth from the viewer, is striking and beautiful just the same.

It’s lucky for Lureen that Parson Tuttle is a notorious fraud without even the rudiments of a theological education, because I’d have to guess the a typical backwoods preacher in hill country wouldn’t take too kindly to devilish papist notions like “confession.”
