Hemispheres

by macronencer
Some marriages are not made in heaven. And it's far, far worse when the two participants are trapped in the same head.

Author's Note: This comic is based on the pervasive myth that left and right brain hemispheres have different 'personalities'. This is almost certainly not true, but it's a bit of fun to imagine it is regardless. For more information, see: https://www.scientificamerican.com/article/5-common-myths-about-the-brain/

@Morzone: I expect Right Brain just heard it somewhere and decided to try it out! Always good to learn new things :)

if I was going to run into a word I needed to look up, I have to admit I was expecting it to come from the left half of the brain rather than the right.

Learning new things every day.

Almost a year
We're coming up to the first anniversary of Hemispheres, and I want to thank those who have read any of them in that time (especially Morzone, my die-hard fan!) I'm not an artist, I'm a writer — but I've had a lot of fun with this format and I'm frankly quite surprised that I managed to get this far without skipping a single week.

I said right from the start that if I made it to a year I would publish these in a book, so I guess it looks as though I'll have to follow through on that! Obviously if I manage to do that then I'll post a link on the main comic note page and in an author comment as well.

Onwards and sideways...

@Morzone: Very true! I'll tell you something else: one-handed is VERY bad if you have something expensive tucked under the other arm, and the brake on the side you're gripping is not working. Believe me, I know... it was the only time I've ever been knocked unconscious :)

One-handed is Still better than "Look ma! No hands!"

@Ryjora: Thank you, that means a lot to me! I'm considering publishing a book of these at some point, by the way.

I really enjoy reading these, they're simple but clever.

@Morzone: Well yes... But what I was thinking was more "they're fictional"! Every comic author is required to break the fourth wall at least once - it's a rule now :) Thanks for your comment!

I mean, they're a brain. They're technically thinking it, not saying it, right?

I'm very curious what movie would bring this internal discussion about.

I have a hunch it's Twilight.

@Joseph: Hahaha! Yes, Left Brain gets a bit above itself sometimes :) Also, Right Brain can't spell 'Concorde'...

@Ryjora: Thanks! It's tough to keep coming up with ideas, but I have at least five or six in the pipeline, so I hope to continue for a while yet.

I'm glad that this series is still going!

My point is that I expected something something entirely different when I saw the page title and now I'm just wondering which half of my brain is responsible for thinking of it that way.
@Ryjora: Thanks! :)

@Morzone: Thanks for noticing! You wouldn't believe how long it took me to choose those typefaces... :-\

I didn't notice earlier but I like the way there's two different fonts for each side. A nice touch.
