And here's part two of "story beats that make sense until you remember comics are a visual medium." It's fine! I'm glad comics don't have an audio component! Today I was reminded, as I often am, that animators frequently underestimate just how complicated sound design is, and how much work it takes to make it sound like anything less than total ass.
Thanks to James, Gavin Laing, and @ordinaryracco0n for their help with Jekyll's accent! (I think that's everyone--if I missed someone, please let me know!) I ended up using a combination of suggestions to hopefully achieve maximum weirdness. I believe it's now considered cringe to spell out accents, Hagrid-style (although IDK . . . I still find it charming), so I promise I will only use it sparingly.
