Luma’s World — Sunset Frets

A walk will, indeed, help.

By Comics, Featured, Featured Comics

Panel 1: Luma is sitting on the floor swaddled in a blanket and staring at her laptop. There's a fish tank behind her with a goldfish. Her fish asks, "Luma, you have been staring at your laptop all day." Luma yells back "THE WORLD IS ON FIRE!" The fish, worried and maybe a little annoyed, says, "...Just go take a walk." Panel 2: Luma is not outside her house. The house is a brick townhouse. The sun has just set, and there is a lamp post next to Luma. A few small fireflies are above her head, but she doesn't seem to notice. She thinks to herself in a thought bubble, "Will a walk help?" Panel 3: Luma looks up and sees the fireflies. She looks amazed by them. Unlike the other panels, this one lacks any borders. The fireflies are the main color, and Luma herself is just drawn as line art with very simple shading. Panel 4: Close up of a glowing firefly. Panel 5: A firefly lands on Luma's hand. She's in full color again, and there is a yellow outline around her to contrast her against the now dark night sky. She looks at the firefly and says, "Maybe not everything is totally terrible after all. The firefly replies to her, saying, "You're not so bad yourself."
