Panels 1-3: Well, if you’re gonna overdialogue—or overnarrate, technically—a sequence, best to at least alternate where the overstuffed word balloons are placed, which adds at least a wee bit of visual interest to these otherwise unexciting, text-dominated panels. Having all three balloons placed at the top of each respective panel would’ve been too repetitive, IMHO.
Panel 5: Who, exactly, might the Titanic Tale-Teller be addressing? Who? WHO? Let’s find out together next week, folks! (SPOILER: I already know the answer.)
