The original strip that I submitted to the paper was revised a bit for the simple reason that I wasn't satisfied with the drawing I did. It was done in a hurry and not through the usual process of creating a thumbnail and weighing the dialogue for impact and delivery. But there wasn't anything simple about this revision. I had to tweak the angles here and there, I positioned and repositioned the characters over again and what I initially thought to have a weak punchline turned out to be something good after I gave it a once-over.
