When Gwen takes the stand and speaks with a voice that "grew full loud and shrill / growing a windy shriek in all men's ears / a ringing in their startled brains," I assume the author is being metaphoric. But, of course, Lit Brick cares little for metaphor.
Note: This will seem hasty after I just had a break, but I need to take another break. Actually, the last break should've just lasted longer. We're moving into a fixer-upper right now and the work is overtaking my comic time. We'll be moved in completely on Saturday, though, so comics will return in a week. Thanks!

Lit Brick is a comic started by Jodie Troutman in an effort to read the entire Norton Anthology of English Literature. Having eventually succeeded in that goal, it now features comics about all manner of random literature. For more of Jodie's work, visit troutcave.net!
