This strip came to me at the last minute. I needed a place in the story to slow down the momentum of the last few falling strips, and a jump off point to carry the adventure further towards the center of the Earth. I planned out the sequence of frames and ended it with a cliff (tail)-hanger. It was a challenge imagining the clump of rock breaking apart, but I finished it up in good time. Still, I felt it needed something more. The mental image I had of Gorr slowly swinging by his tail wouldn’t go away, so I decided to animate a bit of movement in that final panel. It came out closer to what I had imagined than I could have imagined.
