This is a page where I had to completely revise a large part of the original layout. Go back and take a look at it, and ask yourself just what exactly I was thinking when I reversed the angle in panel one. Moab has consistently faced your right in every single panel so far (and indeed for most of the rest of the comic). Why in the world would I have turned her around for one panel for no good reason?
I honestly think I did it because I wanted to make sure the cowboy mounted from the left as Western riders always do– this was supposed to emphasize the normal or typical nature of his riding. Where we come from, we ride moas, pardner, and don’t ya fergit it. The obvious solution, to have him walk around Moab and mount from her far side, just didn’t occur to me.
Of course, that means he’s saddling her wrong on page 10. Dammit. That never occurred to me until right this second. Iowa was actually doing it right, then he interrupted her and did it wrong. I think I have some major revisions to make! Thank whatever for pencils, and a chance to think before you ink.
