This is easily the most human Momo's ever looked. Seems so comfortable!

The strip has always derived humor from boundaries being crossed.

I like to imagine that if May were my friend I would have respected her privacy.

Conflict is core to storytelling. The trick is just finding the conflict that's natural to the characters.

I think it's a contrived jump from "It could have been a midnight petting zoo" to "It was, for a fact, a petting zoo", though. But it makes for a very clever punchline.

As far as I can tell, her apparent age changes along with the art style at various points, or perhaps as Jeph needed (she seems to look younger when around Sam, for example).  Then again, I'm not the best judge, being at an age where I'm still not over the hill, but think that anyone who looks ≤ 25 looks like a kid.

Ah! So we're going with the classic comedic joke of 'two people talking about different things but assuming that the other knows what they're really talking about'! That kind of works in this scenario, especially as Jeph has made it clear that May can't plausibly lie to save her life. It thus becomes inevitable that she's going to let enough slip for Momo to deduce what she did without necessarily with whom.

Momo's body language and expressions in this strip are hilarious! It could be a schoolgirl animé, couldn't it? Usa-chan asking Moko-chan what she did last night that led her to come into the dorm so late? Once again, that fits because of Momo and May's levels of maturity do seem in most ways to be at about 'high school graduate' levels.

On the subject of Momo's body language, did anyone else think her posture and outline in panel 2 was a trace of an earlier Emily appearance?

I think it's a contrived jump from "It could have been a midnight petting zoo" to "It was, for a fact, a petting zoo", though. But it makes for a very clever punchline.

It's not contrived when you remember from yesterday's strip that the petting zoo was Momo's suggestion about what May had been doing. So, Momo isn't looking for the truth but rather validation of her own personal version of reality. Most fan-theorists get wedded to their head-canons like that!

As usual, I don't have anything smart or insightful to say.

But - I really like today's comic. It's funny, and I genuinely like where this is going. It has potential for both comedy and interesting non-funny interactions.

Can't wait to see what's next.

Raising the question, why does the support group meet physically?

It probably makes it easier for those who have parole officers to verify that they're not leaving the area.  Physically at least.

I think an all-night petting zoo would be mostly bats.

Bats are probably a poor choice.  They tend to panic when large mammals move nearby.  And occasionally, panic on the aggressive side with a sacrificial kamikaze going on a no-hope attack to buy time for the rest to escape. Small children could get claw marks or bleeding bites and be traumatized.  Depending on how carefully cared for and selected the bats are, there could even possibly be a risk of rabies.

I can't think of any nocturnal animals of North America that would react well to petting. Other than domestic cats, and besides being too familiar to people for a petting zoo to be an experience, they hardly count as nocturnal anymore.  Coyotes and Bobcats can (sort of) become accustomed to humans, but I've never heard of one tolerating more than a very small closed set of humans.  A bobcat can be friends with one or two humans, tops.  Any unfamiliar humans will be treated the way wild bobcats treat humans (ie, panic and run). Casting a broader net, I think maybe lemurs are reasonably okay with people, assuming the people bring treats?

At first glance it looked like the poster behind May was advertising a drink called "Hot Guilt."  Must be the Catholic school survivor in me coming out.   Momo rushing in, pony tail flapping in the slipstream - excellent!

My reaction was 'Emily does not have pink hair. This must be Momo'.

I feel like she tends to wear looser clothing most of the time, which tends to make her look younger.

Also you don't have her standing next to a human in that comic, so her shorter height isn't apparent.

You do realise that Momo is friends with Pintsize and May, right? Whatever innocence she had was washed away years ago in a wave of porn gifs and sub-reddit links.

Now, you'd be more accurate to say that Momo is naive, at least from my perspective.

And it's not like Momo hasn't had lustful thoughts, specifically about Sven.  I just hope that she and May are able to talk things out without zappage going on.

Jeph's art has got REALLY good lately. I love May's expression when she's trying to sneak in in the first panel.
Eh - actually i'd say he peaked around the late 2000s-early 3000s.  Compare the current art here: (https://www.questionablecontent.net/view.php?comic=3989) with the same bunch here: (https://www.questionablecontent.net/view.php?comic=2798).  The current stuff strikes me as more 'cartoonish' compared to the greater realism of the previous work.  The lips are the most obvious difference.  Jeph is obviously capable of doing both styles so he must have made the change for a reason.
I have to look carefully to see those differences - the one thing that annoys me is having gone back to the "everyone has a super-pointy chin" style after having more realistic face shapes in the 1000s. I guess different people notice different things.

Further on the subject of art, i just noticed the black eyeliner/spikes at the upper outside of each eye Momo has.  I was going to say she looks good with them, but i can see them on May and Bubbles too at least.  So i think that Jeph has come up with another subtle way to distinguish AIs from humans.  Like the square vs round speech bubbles.

This wasn't a penny dropping. This was a sack of pennies falling on Momo's head after it fell out of the upstairs window of a bank.

Based on Momo's expression in panel 5, May does not have to do much but confirm what Momo has already deduced. The question is whether May will tell her with whom she did the deed and whether a conversation will ensue about the difference between 'relationship' and 'sex as uncommitted recreation'. Momo strikes me as the sort of person who would have problems accepting that the latter is actually possible.

Jeph did a lot of good work with the art today; I particularly like how he did the crowded street in panel 1; it's a lot more complex than how he normally does these things. One thing I did notice though is that Momo is blushing like a human rather than having the little tint panels on her cheeks light up the way he normally does with anthropomimetic synthetics.

Further on the subject of art, i just noticed the black eyeliner/spikes at the upper outside of each eye Momo has.  I was going to say she looks good with them, but i can see them on May and Bubbles too at least.  So i think that Jeph has come up with another subtle way to distinguish AIs from humans.  Like the square vs round speech bubbles.

Actually, that's how Jeph identifies a figure as female. Dora  and Emily have them too; I think Tai, Faye and Claire do too but it's a bit too early in the day to go searching for panels of them without their glasses on.

Is it an art style change, or are Momo's blush panels, like, super high tech?

Been recently rereading the comic (not the entirely, but a whole lot), and blushing Bubbles/May/Roko are, from what I recall, always depicted as having somewhat animesque, short straight lines on their cheeks. And Roko's chassis is probably towards the high-end in terms of quality.

EDIT: no, sorry. I remember Roko's coworker blushing similarly (her entire face being red), and her face wasn't extremely humanlike. I think that just indicates super-intense blushing that goes beyond the narrow short line. Or maybe there are just two kinds of blush panels, depending on which aesthetic the manufacturer is going for.

As noted, it eyeliner on female characters (or rather on characters who wear eyeliner, most of whom are female).

Rectangular speech bubbles usually mark an AI, but there are exceptions.  Momo in particular appears to have a more HiFi human voice that she uses from time to time in addition to her default robot voice.   She is, after all, a student of human customs and social behavior. 

Or Jeph may have forgotten to draw the robovoice rectangles in those strips.  But, I only remember it happening with Momo and it fits the character, so I'll keep that in my headcanon unless Jeph says it ain't.

Perhaps not.  Momo is a civilian model, designed to blend in with the human population.   Whereas Bubbles is military, perhaps a less broad set of expression software.

Perhaps not.  Momo is a civilian model, designed to blend in with the human population.   Whereas Bubbles is military, perhaps a less broad set of expression software.

Bubbles - as I mentioned a few posts before - blushes similarly to the way both Roko and May have, in the past. So I don't think that's about "military vs civilian". I still think it has to do with the intensity of emotion, or perhaps it's just an art inconsistency (I think the former, though).

Momo has a quite impressive mind there, managing to come to the right conclusion with so little data.  And I see nobody has commented on May's choice of reading matter.

New here, but just felt moved to comment on the last week or so.

1. May is the second worst person to ask about relationships or sex. The worst, obviously, being Pintsize.
2. Not exactly clear what May would get out of her proposal to Sven. Even if she's mentioned such activity before. The whole robot / human sex thing never made a lot of sense to me anyway.
3. It turns out there was no reason to censor May's chest.
4. From what May has said before, you'd think there would be no reason to censor her bottom, either.
5. May's post-whatever reaction is pretty hostile. It'd ruin the whole experience for me, personally.
6. USB is about 18 watts max even with oddball nonstandard protocols. You're not powering a robot body on that.
7. Do not ever sleep with someone who is deeply ashamed of the idea.
8. It appears Momo is interested, but interested in who? Or maybe it's just a general fascination.
9. Unrelated, but I'm slightly disappointed that Basilisk has never attempted to learn what Human Abs actually look like. Plus, Clinton never catches a break.

Reading the cheap porn in a convenience store is so in character for May that no one noticed.  ;)  Also, she has a history of noticing female meatpeople's boobage, specifically Faye's the first time they met.

Have you seen the Patreon version?

6. USB is about 18 watts max even with oddball nonstandard protocols. You're not powering a robot body on that.
Ever since 2012, the USB Power Delivery specification has allowed 20 volts at 5 amps, for 100 watts, with 100% standard protocols. My employer makes some non-standard USB devices that can deliver 130 watts, as well (I'm not sure if anyone else makes anything with higher power output - we have a 180 watt non-standard Thunderbolt 3 device, but it spreads that power over two connectors).

Marigold's, actually. "Holy crap look at the cans on that one!"

(Dale responded "SO glad she can't hear you....")

Did Sven tell May his name?

Did May tell him hers?

Neither was obliged to, it can just be that casual. I'm more thinking Momo may not realise exactly who May hooked up with if she just has a vague, May-delivered description to go on.

You would think so but it was May's advice that both initiated Dale and Marigold's relationship and got them through their first real fight.

Judging by her track record, she's actually one of the best characters to ask about relationships!  The question now is whether or not she can apply her wisdom to her own life.

I hadn't thought of that!

100 watts still might not be enough, depending on how efficient robot bodies are. I believe humans average about that much when stationary, more when moving around. Some fraction of that, I don't know how much but probably a lot, goes to keeping us warm enough to prevent fungal growth. Synthetics can skip that.

It's been a while since we had a Friday cliffhanger this good, I think.

So "yay" and "boo hiss" all at once.

So in character that no one discussed it, I think. I am certain it was not just you and I that noticed.
