I like that there's not the similar dialogue anymore, but it seems a tiny bit forced, and definitely a lot harsher in tone. I wonder how the change will reflect future meetings between them... If it was just a flare up, or it's the beginning of the end made a little less subtle?
Personally, I gotta say, I rather liked the originally posted dialogue. Not only for the flavor of it's snark, despite the similarity to what was said in a past conversation, but precisely for the fact that it was similar. I can speak from experience that when you're trying to make a point to a friend (or frenemy) about something, and they be outright and obnoxiously stubborn with their issues, it very frequently turns into a repeat or circular conversation. sometimes within the SAME conversation. Those who don't learn from history are doomed to repeat it and all that. In a way, it felt somewhat more natural to me as a result.
Just the same, the new dialogue isn't without merit either, if perhaps less amusing and a bit less subtle about shining the spotlight on the crumbling friendship between Christo and Peter. Whatever the case may be, stick with your gut and do what flows well and feels right to you, Gibson. I truly think of this as one of the best comics I've ever read, and I've never yet been disappointed in your material. And this coming from a guy who usually pokes around for comics for a good laugh or an action packed story. But then again, you manage to throw in very funny yet very -real- moments, and the character development is superb. I can only think you deserve more recognition man, and I'll follow this comic (and Eden) to it's bittersweet end.
Stories they tell ...
I am really wondering if everyone will take it well. Some people really don't like being reminded of their past.
We all kinda forget the camera is there till we see the photos later.
With Sam, it feels kinda like he is sharing his diary with everyone (imo), and not everyone sees things the same way a lens does.
The same way everyone reads a novel differently ... or a web comic. :-)
... and +1 again to Mr. Twist for making characters that are so nearly tangible in their crafting.
