    It’s a good idea, but why not have a separate comic panel for each of the instructions, with illustrations that match the instructions?

    …and remove the stick

    The final step of the ‘how to’ comic panel says “When finished with sugar on a stick, shut down the computer manually”

    I would try “…shut down the computer manually and remove the stick”

    Also, two questions
    1. are you sure the shading on the table legs is right (spurious question, does not matter)
    2. instead of the generic computer, why not draw an actual ‘X0′ in your comic thus giving
    the opportunity to add information with circles/arrows pointing to the power switch, the
    usb port, other places where the stick does not go, where F12 is, etc.’

    I hope to more comic-fy and illustrate them better over Christmas holidays. And re-shade those legs. I was watching Fringe and not paying attention when I started shading… Was hoping no one would notice. ^_^ I scan everything at each stage so I can go back and fix a picture so I’ll probably do that!
