The Comic Critic Reviews "Happy Endings"

I’m a big fan of stories with multiple characters that are woven together as the plot develops. If this type of story has a distinctive name that I don’t know about, I would love it if some other film buff would enlighten me. Meanwhile, I will go with “Tapestry.” I’m also a big fan of drawing reviews with arrows pointing from one character to another. This one had so many characters that I thought it would be fun to feature just those I considered part of the secondary plot lines. And I know I’m going to get some folks arguing that these are not secondary characters, that they are all part of the whole complex structure of the story. They might be right. But doing it sure made drawing this comic a lot easier.
