Is Yemisi a new character or just one we haven't seen in awhile?

I completely remember her and am definitely not lying.
new character
old character
Ummm......hang on. Let me check the archives.
Wasn't she one of the library interns introduced with Claire, Gabby, and Emily?
No clue, tired man.

Well, it's one way to get more comfortable with your body. It's a better option than using a vegetable peeler on your face.

What isn't?

...Don't answer that.

Now I'm wondering if I should hire a personal shopper, I dislike having to buy clothes for myself. Would that be affordable for the 'average' person?

I'd have to do that and a tailor thanks to 'weird' body proportions. Seriously, it's like the clothing industry refuses to acknowledge short and stocky folk exist.
[5'5" and I wear a 1XL or 2XL depending on brand for my shoulders alone.]

Anyone who is self-employed knows that you're always on the look for new clients. Also, I'm quite sure that a Personal Shopper will have Views even on your 'I'm too tired to fashion' sleepwear. I mean, grey goes well with Roko's skin-tone but grey goes well with just about everything, doesn't it? I now wonder if we're going to have a costume change sequence with Roko trying on different types of sleep-wear because Yemisi has made her feel a bit neurotic on the subject?

Meanwhile, panel 2: Yay is basically going to ignore all of Roko's objections and just do whatever they want, aren't they? I mean, that isn't changing anything but it's still an insight into their weak social instincts and overwhelming narcissism!

That's not mercenary, that's forced enlistment with minor incentive pay.

Roko, have a stern talk with your parasitic friend. They really need it.

I've got a cousin built like that. She got her dad's linebacker shoulders.

I seem to have gotten the broadest parts from all four grandparents; broad shoulders, barrel chest, thunder thighs, and extra wide feet. Finding gloves that fit is a little easier than shoe shopping, but I always have to deal with some extra length if I want to be able to fully close my hand w/o ripping out the sides. Needless to say, my button-up are usually worn unbuttoned or big enough I have to cuff up the sleeves.

Apparently I'm built like a short boxer, wrestler, or caber-tosser. Thank God for relax-fit jeans though.

Time and materials are the most difficult ones, in my experience. If you know some basic sewing, and find a fitting pattern, it's easy enough to assemble. There's a wealth of knowledge on the internet. The hard part is when you start having to alter patterns, or draft your own. But then, there's Freesewing.org where you choose the design, enter your measurements, and it generates your pattern to size. They come with decent instructions, as well.

Yeah, Roko was obviously feeling extra-horny yesterday in-strip, hence the large amount of used bread.

The last time we saw Roko was when Lemon successfully drew her out of her dysphoric episode triggered by chassis shopping with May. She didn't seem particularly horny to me while yelling at Beeps to stop smelling the stinky stuff.

Given that Yemisi's hair has visibly grown since we saw her last at The Horrible Revelation, I think we can safely say that a good few weeks, maybe more than a month, has passed since May accidentally triggered Roko's episode.

I was pointing out that there was no yesterday in-comic where Roko was feeling extra horny.

The one thing about personal shoppers I don't see, though they might actually exist, is ones that go out of their way to find sales, deep discounts and bargains.

My one sister could make a killing as a bargain clothes hunter is she wasn't such a recluse now and making her own clothing of late.

When she was working full time she was able to sniff out designer clothing that would almost fit her rail thin frame [she would adjust things herself] at crazy discount levels and then haggle the final sale even lower since the stores were trying to clear their inventory instead of sending it back to the design houses at a loss.

I suppose it depends on the customer. I'm sure some expect their PS to purchase something outrageously-priced, bizarre-looking and impractical.

It is that fact which makes me wonder precisely what Yemisi bought for Yay.

I wonder the effect on Roko's body incongruence. I think I've said, I like the idea of changing bodies, like changing clothes. More with that metaphor, some clothes, no matter how well-fitting or good-looking, I just can't wear. (Well, sometimes it's always, but usually I sometimes just can't wear. I never wear either. I don't know my incongruence won't haunt them while still worn.) So I'm exacting in what clothes I wear. I don't know that anyone else can ever learn that pattern, my clothes' essence. I think it could be like how some celebrities shop, where their shopper buys many options, most of which are returned. There's an interesting idea about bargain-hunting, though. If it's on a commission, based on my usual budget (that's accounting for things like my time/salary), I might consider it.

Actually, in all honesty, I think that new costume works for Melon. As for the (likely soft foam) headpiece? Well, it's the sort of thing Melon would do, isn't it? I do like Yemisi's "Hey, the customer is always right, no matter how otherworldly their choices" shrug. No-one has ever asked her to dissuade them from giving her money before!

Interesting how Yay is moving in panel 2. I'm wondering if this instance really has decided to try to be more feminine in presentation and found that they like it? Maybe, after long enough associating with Roko, this instance will be somewhat desynchronised from the others in behaviour?

I think it might be more about not wanting to get used to a character that's going to go away. I'm not a big fan of change, and I can definitely see that as a legitimate concern. I happen to really like Tilly, doncha knowit? But don't think bringing them back is gonna do much good for the strip, or the character. They exist in a sort of perfect state right now, that I'd rather have not messed up. I would like to see more of them, if well written, but it'd take some reworking of the story to let it glide to a place where that's possible. I'd love to see more of Station, too, but that would take a lot out of the present situation. Maybe as a spin-off comic, but I'm sure Jeph has his hands full with a consistent 5-days-a-week strip - I wouldn't wanna axolotl them.

Please?

I'd like previous characters to be developed a bit more, and the comic tends to have a sort of treadmill with secondary character where they fade into the background in time, even IF they remain part of the cast, and fill their own niche rather than being more explored. If it's a character I don't like, it doesn't bother me, but I suspect I dislike at least some of them because they were underutilised.

The new character might end up being good, but I have my doubts if the expiration date on the new character will be longer than for other characters that were introduced and later just sort of went away. And anticipating that kinda makes me lose my investment in the new cast member from the get-go.

Not every new character has to be a main one, though? Personally I'm fine with someone being introduced just to move the plot along (like Tilly) and then disappearing again.

All of this is terribly familiar to me as a onetime fan of the works of Rumiko Takahashi (manga artist/creator), who - between artistic preference and/or the demands of syndication - had a strong tendency to rarely resolve or progress story arcs and characters, merely add wacky new ones whenever things started to slow down.  Which is a fantastic way to draw things out and keep any given series going forever as long as it's popular and profitable, but tends to frustrate people looking for closure or lasting character development.

Which, it seems, is absolutely the point. She's written in there to move along the Roko/Yay storyline, possibly to spark Roko into laying down the law and drawing some new social boundaries between her and Yay.

Is Yemisi Jeph's new favorite character? Whom we are supposed to fall in love with? Like Tillie?

Here we go again ...

... can she please commit an actual sin before we break out the New-Character-Must-Die pitchforks?

Please?

I don’t mind new characters at all, but I do miss the older characters like marten, pint size, Dora, and to a lesser extent hanners, and marigold, especially because I feel there were still storylines to explore especially with marten and Dora. But, as long as Jeph finds engaging arcs it’s fine by me. That said, the past year several arcs have not really kept my interest.

I DO find myself thinking it might be a idea to do 2 strips. Keep Questionable, add 'Union Robotics' and spin off May, Bubbles and Faye, Rokko and Yay and have the Robot arcs there.

EDIT.

New comic up! Yay, Brun and Millie. :D

It's a good thing Mille was honest right away, because Brun has been having a rough time lately.

One could argue each new character takes away screen time from Marten...  :-D

"Do you have any secret feelings for me that I have no way of knowing about"  :laugh: 
I love the vaguely accusatory wording - as if to say, "How dare people introduce these pesky emotional variables that I have no capacity to be able to detect!"

Poor Brun! Today's strip really does strongly imply that Clinton and Elliot's revelations have been mildly traumatic to her and left her feeling a bit insecure about all her friendships. I do hope that she explains everything to Millifeulle otherwise she might start getting the wrong idea (although I'm not entirely sure what the right idea would be right now).

I'll make my wager now: Brun and Millie have been earmarked to be the cute romantic asexual couple - Quite into each other but entirely satisfied to just hold hands and occasionally hug in very intimate ways.

Time will tell what the nature of their relationship will be.

No, remember the brain implant that Station was pressuring Hannelore to have? I'm pretty sure that Tilly had one put in and that they and Station are wild and physical in the virtual world!

I don't think traumatic is the right word.  Brun just felt deflated cause she thought she was getting used to understanding people and kind of got side swipped by "emotions" cause she can't read social cues and didn't like missing pieces. The fact she just came out with a straight forward question is showing shes not avoiding it and confronting it openly?

That really depends on if Millie takes the cue and returns the question "Do you have any feelings for me", and if Brun answers with "Im picturing us..."

And I came away from today's comic with: OK, Brun and Millie for a bit, then Millie will give up as Brun is an Ace and return to Jones for comfort and attention.  Indeed, we'll see where these characters get taken.

I thought the interaction between Millefeuille and Brun was really cute last time, so I'm eager to see where this goes.  :)  (Opening with some honesty about feelings seems like a good sign!)
