I thought it was good, and sad.

She's got a new boyfriend*, so she feels like she can't go off on an adventure with her friend the way they usually do.

Reading way too much into it: there's a regret there, a tension. Her stick-figure posture says she wants to go, but her link to hair-guy holds her back.

*Maybe it's not a boyfriend. It could be an authoritative father, or someone she has to be a caretaker for, or even the representation of an idea. Duty, responsibility, fear of the unknown, societal expectations.

Ah, yes
I read it as the two males communicating, hence my comment on how it used to be "bros over hos", but now it's not.

Your explanation makes a lot more sense, now seeing that the speech bubble is actually linked to her, and not her male companion.

Looking at it superficially, one might guess that the man inviting her to come explore the future is an old childhood friend that she's abandoned for her new beau. Symbolically, I think you're right on. I can't even attempt say it better than you already have. …the representation of an idea. Marvelous.

Re: Ah, yes
It's also interesting how the bubbles are placed. Each says their own thing first and gets an answer later. It makes space/time more tricky in the comic.

Re: Ah, yes
she knows she can't be with him even before he asks or even exists, perhaps. Hmm.
