- I'm back, and feeling better. And so is Canberra! I decided that Mel and Syd get to have two intro strips as they're the main characters, but everyone else gets one. To be honest this is how it was originally going to be back in 2011, but I thought my ideas were too good and needed to be too strips. Looking bad, most of them were...not that good at all and two wasn't necessary.
(Plus the entire joke of Can's original first intro strip was that Sydney was an asshole to her. He was in the early days of the comic but this gradually got phased out, so it seems incredibly out of character now. He's a git, but not to his daughter. The second one (which is the same one used here) did play off that, but with the first one gone it now seems like he's just oblivious instead of outright trying to sabotage her. Early-Syd, you really sucked. No wonder Mel could hide his feelings easier.

Throughout the years Canberra gradually started resembling Syd and Mel more, which was unintentional at first but not anymore. She does look a bit more like Mel to me though.

I love that parliament. It's actually built partly into a hill. One ANZAC day saw me in Canberra, having a picnic. I didn't realise we were sat on the Parliament for some time!

Just for the record many Canberra residents (myself included) prefer to think that Canberra doesn't resemble Sydney or Melbourne all that much.

I'm super happy to see the return! And I'm very glad to hear that things've improved for you.

Can is very endearing in her earnest determination. The expressiveness in her posing is great, too.

Perhaps underscoring Can's frustration in the last panel, I [a foreigner]have never actually seen a picture of the Parliament building before this, but I've known of Syd's Opera House for as long as I can remember :p

Take a better look. Here's the wiki page and it opens showing how the building was built inside Capital hill. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Parliament_House,_Canberra#/media/File:CSIRO_ScienceImage_11 533_Parliament_House_Canberra.jpg

I didn't really notice the appearance shift, but I do like how Can looks now :>
