Yes her look has changed significantly recently. I've been suffering the same problem.

To me, she looks like a 12-14 year-old girl in today's comic.

Around and around and around and around and around and around we go.

This whole discussion is just sinking into the depths of infinity and ad nauseum.

Yes, that pretty much sums it up for me, too. That's why i stopped reading this thread on tuesday.
But enough of that. Let's quit this rather boring storyline and return to something far more interesting: Shenanigans in CoD!  :-D

Manga style!
Chibi characters!
Yaaayyy!!!


Oh, I love this so much. A perfect strip to end the week and give me something I can return to over the weekend every once in a while for a quick re-read.

You can go so many places in your imagination with today's strip. Was it a consequence of Dale and Emily both being gamers that they do everything like bits out of one game or another? Or was it just Dora anticipating a fight (the way that Faye and Raven would have in years of yore) and then remembering that Dale and Emily are both far more relaxed, generous and, dare I say it, socially healthy?

Either way, you can tell that Jeph was apparently been on a Mortal Kombat kick when he drew this strip!

I can't help but wonder if Marigold might be behind this innovation.

Yay, Dale and Emily! :D Emily's T-shirt has got me wondering whether Stoats are an in-universe sports team (or possibly a band) or whether she just really likes stoats. Knowing Emily I'd assume probably the latter.

I smiled a whole lot at the new comic today and I just want to establish that I liked it a whole lot before I pick on one little thing.

Has Dora... lost her look? I'm not sure what makes her Dora anymore.  In the first panel I thought she was Emily, until Emily showed up.

My exact thoughts!
There has definitely been a bit of playing around with character models in the recent weeks.
(That and overall art style, thickness of line etc...)

I think Mssr Jaques is just experimenting with things (as he has since the strip began, I suppose!) but some of the little changes have been a bit jarring recently.

The last time I checked, the U.S. consensus is that the ideally sexually arousing woman has the face of a twelve-year-old girl, the breasts of a nursing mother, and the body of a boy athlete.

And now for something completely different.

Maybe this arc will keep up with the drama and possibly revisit Cossette or Penelope.

They're actually known as the Blue Devils, but you already knew that, I think.  :parrot:

Stout, on a completely different subject, is one of only two UW System schools that are not named for the city or county where they are located. Stout (which would be known as UW-Menomonie if it followed convention) is named for its founder, James H. Stout.

The only other UW school not named for its city is technically named for its location: UW-Parkside. The school, constructed next to Petrifying Springs Park in northern Kenosha County, is situated halfway between Racine and Kenosha.

OH MY GOD THEY ARE ADORABLE!!!!

*Ahem*

I mean, nice muscovid. Kudos.

I, too, would like to report that I made various polite and dignified sounds of approval while viewing the stoats.

And absolutely no glass objects cracked or shattered.

Just so long as it's not a pilsner. :P


Speaking semi-seriously, though; Emily strikes my as the sort to enjy alcohol more for the flavors and sociality than the getting drunk. So a good mixed drink like a 'seaside sunrise' or a 'screwdriver'.

[Fixing typos]

situated halfway between Racine and Kenosha.

I've got a grandfather from Kenosha.
I don't really recall why he moved from Wisconsin to Kansas. It might have been on assignment from the Salvation Army? Oddly enough, he moved here before meeting my grandmother. She happened to move here from Michigan. And both of them were 2nd generation immigrants (Germany for one, Scotland and Canada for the other).

Dr. Manhattan was right about it being a wonder what all has to happen for one person to be born.
