What is happening in this strip? Is the author/artist attempting to build a previously unaddressed relationship/sexual tension going on between Rita and Rick? Is this something that we should be keeping an eye on into the future? What exactly is the relationship between Rick & Rita about? Is there a story behind this? Perhaps, and I say this with all sincerity, you should simply allow the storyline to play out. Perhaps, and I say this with not that much knowledge of how this will play out, you should accept that life as a general rule is sloppy, unplanned, and mostly meandering. Perhaps, and I say this as someone who does not know how this little written blurb ends, you should just keep moving through the archives. We’ll get somewhere eventually, and we’ll get there together, reader.
