She Said What? Swagger-style

by Kim Van Sickler

 Panel One
Elsie (running): Argh! The rope twisted out of my hands! Help me!
Megan (in balloon): OMG! You're doomed!




Panel Two
Elsie (hanging): Umf! Head's as fizzy as champagne. How 'bout a hand?
Megan (in balloon): I can't do this alone! Someone stronger, smarter, and preferably super sexy, help us!




Panel Three
Superhero V: Never fear! Velociraptor Man is here!
Panel Four
Superhero V: Note to self. Retract claws when rescuing damsels in distress from hot air balloons.





Panel Five
Megan: Buzz off, Super Dud! Your incompetence makes me want to vomit!




Panel Six
Elsie (red shirt): Your negativity really bums me out.  I only want friends who see the world in a glass-half-full kind of way!
Megan (brown shirt): O...kay. Our savior seems to be a really honorable dude.





Panel Seven

Dino: He looks a little grey, but hey, I'm not a picky eater.
Megan (brown shirt): We tangoed cheek-to-cheek with death and won! Thanks, Velociraptor Man! Better?

Ha! So there you have it! Seven panels dialogued. I upped the challenge by working in the bonus words: twist, cheek, buzz, honor, grey, champagne, tango, and vomit. Happy Blog-o-versary to Michelle Wallace and Elise Fallson and for coming up with this fun, creative exercise!

    1. Well, like you said. It's not really a comic strip unless you can get a chuckle.

  17. Thanks for your nice comments Nick and Lexa. My 15-year-old rolled her eyes when she read it and said, "Mom, you are NOT cut out to be a cartoonist."
