Ooooh, the suspense! I wonder if acknowledging speech bubbles as being there is breaking the 4th wall?

Yup, that's breaking the fourth wall, alright.

MadameLecter, if you don't know already, the 4th wall refers to the 'invisible' wall that is assumed to be there in television and movies, but is not really there to allow the camera access into the room.

This "fourth wall" (as film/television sets usually only have 3) could be broken by acknowledging it isn't there.

Breaking the 4th wall refers to characters in a story who are AWARE that they are in a story.

Speech bubbles don't actually exist in the world of any comics, they are just there for the audience. The characters themselves don't interact with them in any way.

But here, one character acknowledges the speech bubbles which theoretically don't exist (just like the 4th wall theoretically exists, but doesn't.)

In short, yes, it's breaking the 4th wall.



Now how about a Bio Page for Fitzlucas (the lawyer)?

Ah...so is it bad that I broke the 4th wall by accident? How can I replace the wall 'cuz I honestly didn't mean to! *cries*

Also, idk about a bio page for him. Maybe if he develops into a more relevant character that appears more often, then maybe? Idk. I just wanted the main characters up there at the moment...

You could do what Dave did for BotD, and give minor characters a separate section under the major ones, perhaps.

And as for the 4th wall... You'll probably need a 4th repairman. It's going to cost you though... Do you have any idea how expensive 4th drywall is these days?

I...uhm...I still don't knwo how to go about fixing the 4th wall. How would the 4th wall repaiman repair it?! Maybe I could just not mention it again? Or should I fix the bubble and reupload this scene? I can do that?

And I'll think about the minor characters bio page.....maybe. I don't want to give away anything tho...

There are comics out there in which the fourth wall does not exist, and its nonexistanceis part of the style, like Reasonably Clever on the BCN. It's completely your choice and both styles are great in my book. Great job on the comic again!
