I find this highly relatable. The only thing I know about poker, is that having a lot of aces or picture cards is a good thing

How to say it... A bit surprised about Hugh doing all that quick analysis in his head. Normal during a game but I found him more about acting on instinct here :D
Barry is not amused at all. That strategy works on people like Hugh. I know. Not even talking cards :)

Oh no, Hugh's got a good brain and all, the problem is more with his personality - more on that on next week's pages :D

And yeah, uh, when it comes to force of personality I am definitely more often on Hugh's side of things when people start acting hard on the exterior, such as Barry :')

yeah, it seems that his self-doubt got in the way of victory.





perhaps that's the lesson being taught?

Haven't gone back to check yet, but I've got to wonder. Did Barry even look at his cards this round? Playing cards IRL, with someone so confident that they don't even look at their cards before the flop can be intimidating.

In this case, I imagine Barry has simply had enough of Hugh's timidity and just not care anymore. And, Hugh not noticing this just adds another layer to his over-analysis of the situation.

I don't know that he did... maybe he did? Maybe he just remembers and he doesn't need to keep looking at them? Oh jeez D:

I have to say I'm really happy this is coming across because it's EXACTLY what I was going for :)

So you're saying that Barry is trying to get Hugh to grow a pair of balls spine...

Barry doesn't need to know what the cards are. He knows Hugh.

I think Barry looks very cool here, XD
Maybe with the flustered Hugh as a comparison. I love how you emphasize om the gestures.

Haha! Yeah, I wanted there to be a pretty stark difference between the two, thank you so much! :D

Somehow I don't think that this is the first game of cards between Hugh and Barry. And, if Hugh is learning anything, it is one small thing at a time.

Oh no, they've played plenty of cards :D

Something tells me Hugh's more into it for the fun than for the game itself, though, heh.

He's about to have a STERN talking to, I hope! He's in his head way too much, and not in the game (of cards, here. AND in life).
Needs to set on a better path.

This week is gonna be Barry's philosophy, so we get to see what his aim is, here...

I dunno if I'd trust Barry's aim really.

He brought a knife to a gun fight and lost his bike to the puny humans doncha' know.

Haha :D Hey, that was an unforeseen circumstance! You'll notice he's not so broken up about the missing bike at least. I'd be pretty mad about it, myself :')

This page is great. It conveys so much about their personalities so effectively

And it seems like Barry has the same poker strategy as me

You're a cruel bastard :')

But thank you, I'm trying to figure out how to tell all this stuff through comics and I'm glad it seems I'm learning!
