Is it just me, or does this woman look like she’s right out of a Leisure Suit Larry game? I’m pretty sure that’s what drove my brain to go in this particular direction with this strip – this woman needed a witless moron on the prowl to gun down.
It kills me that it’s 2013 and I still occasionally hear ”If I said you have a beautiful body, would you hold it against me?” as if it’s a brand-new concept.
..In passing, I mean. Nobody has ever said this to me.
Anyway, I wish I could’ve whittled down the wordiness a bit more on this one. It’s far leaner than my first draft, but it’s still got way too much dialog for a three-panel strip.
MRS. SHOEBOX’S ASSESSMENT OF TODAY’S STRIP: Wow. That’s MEAN. I appreciate it, as I’ve actually had these things said to me, but wow. That’s MEAN.
Sorry for completely missing last week – there’ll be an extra strip in the near future.
