Boom. He said it. I’m glad Lee spoke up before he left, I would have just scurried away and thought about all the stuff I wish I had said later. But then again, when I do manage to say something in an argument, it’s never the most level-headed or wise thing. Kudos to Lee.
I can understand Frank being in a hard place at this moment, with what is going on. However, Lee is right; Frank doesn’t know what he wants. Maybe it’s something Lee should have mentioned before the whole dad thing.
or, you know, before saying “let’s ditch your family”?
The parting shot, yes though he’s still flustered so all ain’t been said…
But did he have to slam that door?
The pacing of this page is quite the perfect example of panel size==> panel time b^^d
I feel so bad for both of them. It’s so understandable from both their perspectives and situations. But i’M STILL REALLY REALLY DISTRESSED.
It’s really hard because both of them have valid points and yet both of them are wrong? Not making the right decision? stupid boys?
Like I can’t decide who I’m more upset at.
And now for Frank to have his own ‘delusions’ about a talking cat.
wow!! *that* was mature!
After being yelled at so much, I’m proud of Lee for not yelling back. He just said the one thing that hits home. Not sure why other people are mad at HIM or think he’s being immature. I think he’s showing and enormous amount of restraint, and sometimes difficult things *need* to be said. Jeez, I’ve been in so many situations that started like this and they always led to more screaming. *hugs both of them*
Cue Lucky telling Frank in her most “Guuurl, please,” voice, “How stupid can you be?!” I’m glad Lee gave it to him before he left, but I am still just so upset about how all this went down. Those poor boys, the both of them.
Wow, I love the way the texture from the paper works with the blinds in the last panel… This is such a beautiful series.
As long as Lee doesn’t go off and wish he never met Frank or something like that, I’m happy.
That was one scenario in my head also.
One question… where the hell is Frank’s mom? In the hospital cooing over their dad? Yes, he is in poor health and needs help, but he’s IN A HOSPITAL. There are doctors and nurses there to take care of him, and you don’t have to visit every single day. How about going home and dealing with the family’s finances instead of making you high school aged son do it? Are you an adult or not?
As someone who has had personally dealt with this sort of thing, allow me to give you some insight.
Strokes, asthma attacks, heart attacks, you name it are terrible and terrifying diseases. Even more distressing is being in a hospital, away from loved ones for an extended period of time. In this case, since a stroke can heavily impact a person’s memory, it is quite beneficial for Frank’s mother to be spending time with her husband. It helps his healing process in ways that no doctor can. Doctors and nurses are unfamiliar people. Unless he knows them personally (in which he does not). Furthermore, there are legal and financial matters that you have to deal with when a loved one ends up admitted to a hospital, insurance being the number one culprit. Someone needs to be there to iron that out and Frank’s dad is not all that there at the moment.
Please do not assume that his mother is just sitting on her hands. This is an issue that the whole family is dealing with, not just frank. Everybody here is emotionally drained and trying their best.
Frank you are going to regret this
Owww my heart.
true shit though.
