I think Gordon just learned that you should really hear someone’s story before you make judgements about them. You can’t always go by what you see.
Stay tuned. There is more story coming!
I want to know Gordon’s story now. 20 years in the Marines leaves its own kind of lasting impression, too.
Teddy has a story that’s very familiar to a least a few. In all this time of your comic, it’s probably the first time Gordon has seen Teddy as “something human”.
Cannot wait for Wednesday…
Yeah, it’s that “someTHING human” that pisses me off about Gordon. Teddy will probably never be “someONE human” to Gordon.
Not only is this episode revelatory, it also shows that your choice of media is capable of facial expressive subtlety that I wasn’t aware of.
Teddy has suddenly moved beyond characature, and you’ve executed it well. I’m impressed.
I can’t even imagine such public humiliation. It’s terrible that the graduation ceremony, an event that marks the end of four years of hell for many gay men, was itself another opportunity for the straight boys to play bash-the-fag one last time. It is so much worse that day because no doubt Teddy’s family was in the audience.
I see Gordon rubbing the tattoo on his arm. I can’t wait until Wednesday to learn the story behind that.
Five sentences from Teddy,describing what was one of the worst days of his life…and the look on his face…the ‘mask’ came off,this time. (Though my circumstances were different,high school was hell,for me,also.)
