I made a little fixing on the page and made the fullview bigger. Enjoy! /EDIT:
Because any crazy neighbourhood needs their own mad scientist ~~
Ain't he cute?
(You so gotta blame Silent-Lands for the idea of including him)
If you can get the scalpel reference you will win a cookie!

Okay, so just so's I got this straight:
Roommates and GND peeps are still rooming with their respective roommates, and now we have Dracula living with Frankenstein, and Mina Harker hangin' with Mrs. Lovett. Got it, good.
I have a lot of trouble to draw him and Javert, so thank you for the feedback!
Well, he's the original material after all, while Frodorick is denial first and a copycat later.
I LOVE it!
That was my sister's idea, she made me draw it .
I think the way this crazy universe portrays him is as a very cute character.
THIS, COULD, WORK!
I am very much enjoying this.
I think the main trouble is that the sequence goes like this (pardon the underscores, I can't make plain old spaces work):
1 2 3
7 6 5
8 9 10
If it had gone more like:
1 2 3
7 8 9 10
It would have made the flow more natural. It's easier to understand that 'higher comes first' than to follow the loop of 'now read right-to-left, then left-to-right.'
Other than getting a bit dizzy, I'm really looking forward to seeing more of what you do! You've got some interesting additions to the cast to work with, and your writing is solid-- loved the Young Frankenstein joke, too.
Well, that's the thing about experiments… you don't always get them perfect Yet, I'm getting really good feedback on it, so I consider that a success (perception experiments are interesting). Thank you!
Your idea is good, but the slight diagonal 4-5-6 would make it a bit unstable (the 11 - 12 actual ones do that and it bothers me). Also, I'm thinking, the denser part of the composition would have moved a lot to the right that way, ending up in page more vertical-orientated while I'm trying to find a way for working with the boustrophedon on horizontal and compact compositions (maybe there's no way for me but I guess it’s worth trying).
I guess that your diagram would work really well on a page that include a really big drawing/panel among other normal sized ones, on which the speech bubbles are determinant to get the order.
In any case, thanks for sharing your thoughts, I’ll keep that in mind.
I have to agree with someone posting earlier - I was all confused the first time reading, since I was trying to read the lines left to right. The fact it's a loopy-traintrack sequence of panels works... once I'd figured it out...
Also, you might want to make the fullview larger. That's still a bit wee, methinks.
But yays great spin-offs...!
Plus I guess scatter-braininess is a must on a mad scientists:
Right, I noticed it might be confusing too because I made two bubbles smaller than what I initially planned so the reading sense could be more obvious but since any of my "testers" found it confusing I left it that way. I always make boustrophedon page compositions in full page comics, like on the previous two DTS, (it helps to avoid blank spots in the reading dynamic) but this was my first time applying it to such an horizontal one since my comics are always more vertically orientated. I guess you can take this as an experiment .
However, after that comment you mentioned, I was editing it for today. Hope it is easier to read now (plus full-view improved 200 pixels).
I <3 young frankenstein...
