To me, the coloring makes this strip much more understandable. The black and white version consists of one big rectangle with stuff going on almost at random, which can disrupt the flow (not good). Realizing the mistake I made, I worked to add various colors to the background, helping divide this comic into the six panels it was intended to be. Candace’s roommate didn’t get to be as tough as she is by accident. She learned to fight because, with her relatives,¬†she had to.
