Balloon tail for POV talking character question...

So, consider a panel where Character A is talking with Character B... and the panel itself features art rendered from the perspective of Character A... so, what you see on the page is Character B only (looking right at the reader) or perhaps Character A's glasses in between the reader and Character B.

Where do you point the balloon tails for Character A (who is basically standing where the reader is located) when he speaks?

I'm wrestling with this in my mind in preparation for a page I'm about to letter.

Thanks, Paul!

I was considering that... wasn't sure I could get away with it.

I'll try that when I come to that page and see how it looks.

Thanks, Bishop. Yeah, consensus is a great thing. I was hoping whatever advice I got would be the same from a couple of different people.
