What Have We Been Reading? #3

It's been a while since I've done one of these "What Have We Been Reading?" posts.

How posts in this format work: I swipe a panel from a comic I've recently been reading.

You, the readers and commenters, tell me whether you recognize the panel, and where you think it's from. A few days later, I draw up a more extended consideration of the book in question. (I still owe you a review of Shiga's Meanwhile..., don't I?)

Here's a hint about this panel: it contains both of the title characters of the book.

Another note, not exactly a hint: the panel also contains two things I really didn't like about the book.

I'll be on my way down to SPX directly after teaching today. I imagine I'll be able to keep posting from Bethesda, but I'm not sure what form those posts will take.

I neither recognize it nor have any idea what it's from.

As for what you didn't like: is the language part of it? The size of the nose? I'm grasping at straws here...

The facial aspects of character design in this book were, indeed, one of the things I didn't like about it.

Also, the lettering, which I've tried to replicate in my swipe.

More about it after I've made a dent in my SPX haul.

Since no one guessed this one in over a week, I've decided to let the cat out of the bag.
