Dragon Comics 86

In the short term, though, it seems to work out pretty well. Blood to the brain and all that.

Inversion is good for the spirit. A lot of yogis will tell you that every minute you spend upside down adds a minute to the end of your life, but don’t repeat this information in a room full of military dudes, because they will tell you how long a person can reasonably be suspended upside down before it kills you. So, I would say that, in theory, time spent upside down under your own power may improve your health. Or not. I have no studies on the subject.

When I taught a lot of yoga, I did a lot of handstands. These days, my wrists are not as reliable as they used to be, so I don’t do as many. Instead, I have an inversion table. My friend found it next to a Dumpster and, knowing my affinity for inversion, grabbed it for me.

Another fun fact about inversion is that it can decompress your spine, effectively making you taller.

But being upside down is just fun.

    Such a synchronicity, this discussion of change and that it should take place between Dragon and Owl. Owl’s questions, my questions to myself. Love the little bat–what works for one may not work for another. There must be a word (and as a wordie, I want to know it), for what you have done for the background, making it one through all 4 frames–spectacular.

    So true. I thought of how it would play out using different character foils before deciding on the owl, but once I knew the punchline I realized it would be funnier coming from that bat. Then I toyed with giving the bat the whole conversation, but it was clearly an owl discussion.

    I’m not sure what you’d call the background.
