Word order for seperable prefix verbs

In lesson 18.4 is the following phrase: Das sieht aus wie ein altes Comic. I don't understand why instead it shouldn't be "Das sieht wie ein altes Comic aus". Other examples I have seen put the prefix at the end, e.g. "Du siehst ja nicht so fröhlich aus.". Please clarify the word order rule for me. thanks, Byron

Hi Byron, Both versions are correct. 'Aussehen' is a separable prefix verb. You are right in German the separable prefix is mostly at the end. All the best Paul
