Is the schedule moving up? Cause I don't usually expect a comic until 8 hours later.

Further note: Dora looks really good in this comic

She does! Very elegant, in fact. At least until she starts fan-girling about Marten's mother. In fact the whole dining scene is very nicely drawn, and I bet a lot of effort went into it. And "parental-sex-life-horror" deserves to be a meme. That Lovecraftian moment when one realises that one's parents are getting it on.

So Veronica Vance has a blog.

Of course she does. Purveyors of erotica are always early adopters. I bet she tweets humiliating taunts at her subs too.

So Dora fancies both of Marten's parents...this must be a little disturbing for him, but I guess it means that it's only natural she should be attracted to him, their offspring!

Dora's profile - especially in panel 3 - looks absolutely astounding. It has... almost a zen-like calm to it. Great work, Jeph.

Of course, the transition from Zen Dora to Screaming Fangirl Dora makes it all the more fabulous.  :-D

Marten definitely looks a lot like his Dad.  I can relate and in a few years I'll bet my oldest will be able to do the same.

One of the things Jeph draws (or has drawn) least well is profiles.  I've noticed, however, in the last couple of weeks of comics that they're better. Now there are some excellent profiles of Dora in this comic. The new art is definitely coming together, helped along by Jeph's constantly improving skills.

Which is my roundabout way of saying "Woot! Awesome art, Jeph!"

I'm of the opposite opinion.  It's just a touch too prudish & hypocritical for me.  As long as it isn't that openly displayed it's livable; Marten certainly got a bit more then even I'd be willing to tolerate.  Dora's about to cross that line imho if she's getting sex tips from Veronica's blog.

Making jokes about the dancers in a strip club wearing holiday themed lingerie & Santa hats with the family during Christmas lunch/supper - funny (and has happened).  Modeling the holiday themed lingerie for the family - umm...I need another drink (and thankfully has not happened).

The art's better overall, don't get me wrong, but I think Dora's eyes look a little weird in the last panel. It's probably just the angle.

Well, at least Marten was cool about the TMI from Maurice.

I definitely think Dora wants to hit on Marten's mom - or maybe she wishes visa versa.    :evil:

But I'm totaly with everyone else saying that the whole 'in profile' artwork is improving. Its almost making me want to get back into learning how to draw worth a damn so i can 'join in the fun'.

Judging from Hemry's comments about Marten probably not wanting to know that much about his dad's sex life, I get the opinion that Marten gets alot of his personality from his father. It would be interesting to get a sane character in this series who does actually NOT want to talk so openly about what he and his signifcant other do in private.

I'm a little confused. Boy on his own, Dad on his own. They see each other every once in a while(i.e. not too often). Dad been divorced from Mom for a long time. Is it really that shocking to have that questions posed to you by your dad? (Especially if he's been going steady with someone for a while?)

More likely his dad getting married is not something that's occurred to Marten as a possibility. Sure he knows about the changes in the law, but that's one thing; Henry taking advantage of these changes, another.

Not a bad another, mind, just one not contemplated.

She lives in New England.  Quite possibly not.  I remember a time entertaining some friends from LA in February.  I had a light jacket and a scarf.  They were swaddled in scarves and balaclavas and boots and shell gloves and parkas in which I wouldn't have hesitated to explore the high Arctic.

(That being said, Dora looks snazzy in girl clothes.  She should wear them more often.)

Tights, folks!  Flesh-tone ("nude") tights.  Heavier weight than pantyhose, just as sexy looking, and surprisingly warm.  

And yeah for Marten's dad!  I wonder if it'll be an open-invite wedding, like in GWS... nothing like crossover pandering!  

It'll probably be a quick civil ceremony, though, with the honeymoon in Stowe.  

Will Veronica Vance give the groom away?  Will Marten and Steve be ringbearers?  Will Deathmole play at the reception?  Tune in and speculate!

Well, this is exciting! Weddings are always fun in fiction, and are sometimes also lovely in real life. :) I wonder how big of a to-do this will be....the entire Reed family is so very laid back.

I'm hoping we'll see some more of Marten's dad and Maurice's personalities. Particularly Marten's dad.

Oh, and this occurred  to me: Marten's mom would SO be on Twitter.

Another thought: 'Maurice' wouldn't happen to be a reference to a certain 1917 novel, would it?
