Dear 100 Hour Board,

Why do dramatic (not funny) comic strips feature occasional bolded and italicized words? Is this random?

A: Dear Eligug,

I assume it's random. I used to wonder the same thing, and started trying to find any sort of pattern, but I never came up with one. Maybe it just looks cool.

A: Dear Eligug,
Bold and italics are usually used for emphasis.
