The ‘Nothing Is Happening In Apartment 3-G’ Update

I would just like to assure anyone wondering what’s happened in Apartment 3-G since the last update about how nothing is happening in it, that nothing has continued to happen. I confess it is starting to look like the story might be digging out of its extremely deep ruts into implying something happening. Specifically, this past week Margo did not meet any strange, haunting, phantom-like faces to chase off. Margo did warn Gabby, her until-recently-unsuspected biological mother that the place she had been planning to use for the wedding, Stonewell, had suddenly jumped considerably in price.

How she could have known this I don’t know, because as far as I can tell there haven’t been any moments when she could have learned this. But then Margo and Gabby did teleport mid-conversation from the middle of whatever smalltown American city Henry lives in, back in 1947, into every interior in Apartment 3-G ever anymore. So I can’t rule out their having psychic powers letting them learn these things.

Margo warns Gabby that the Stonewell property, where she hopes to marry, has gone up in price from fifty thousand to a quarter million. (Stonewell is in England so this might be dollars or might be pounds. Gabby's fiancee --- Margo's father --- is absurdly rich.)

Margo has an idea: 'I'm going to make Diane Device disappear!' Gabby does not understand this clearly stated plan to murder Diane.

Anyway, the characters are obviously deciding to take up recreational murder, or possibly stage magic, so that’s very reminiscent of being something-ish, without anything actually happening. In the meantime, I had another bunch of mathematics comics to review over on my other blog. There’s some silly pirate jokes in there. You’d probably enjoy.

  1. Sunday Panel 6 is a new wrinkle, with Margo filling in when Gabby fails to ask a question.

    Today’s appearance by Lampy is a relief after all that Happiness Falls scenery. You can understand why they had to come inside. NY in a July heatwave in turtlenecks and jackets?


    1. At this point, I’ll take lamps in turtlenecks as being nearly as good as story progress. It’s at least something, and it doesn’t bring the world’s most nightmarish deer-based creature on-screen again.


      1. There’s almost no end to the ways the coloring monkeys screw things up. It’s almost like they’re actually prohibited from reading the comics for comprehension, or taking any direction from the cartoonists. In this case though I couldn’t say for sure the problem wasn’t that the word balloon trailed in the wrong direction and the artist accidentally drew the wrong hair on Margo. If it wasn’t a mis-drawn Margo and word balloon, then it was a subtler artistic error since, well, Gabby should be looking to the left. Gabby looking to the left would mean their poses more closely match what’s in every other panel, and it would mean Margo in panel 5 and Gabby in panel 6 were still looking at each other.
