    That was a hair-raising experience.

    I don’t know where to start with this strip, there are so many things!

    I love the way the middle panel is unsymmetrically divided, yet perfectly sized for framing Dakota’s growing hair.

    I love Dakota’s starry-eyed, rapturous expression.

    I love Phoebe’s frantic arm-waving! ::grins:: And her “Stop beholding her glory now!”

    I love how Dakota winds up bending backwards under the weight of her new “Rapunzel” tresses.

    I guess it’d just be easier to say I love everything! Great job Dana!!

    Interesting that her eyelashes and eyebrows didn’t grow too. Would have been fodder for a few more days worth of strips.

    Looks like Rapunzel guest stars in this one.

    @Masterius

    With the way this strip is going, it could become an animated series. But with the way they do cartoons nowadays, I wouldn’t advise it (yet).

    I dunno. IMO quite often the charm of a comic strip or comic book is lessened or lost when it becomes an animated series. However, I think it would be neat if, now and then, one of the strips were an animated one, like Samson does with “Dark Side of the Horse”.

    As an aside, I have this mental image of everything being neatly resolved with Dakota (one way or another) only to discover that Dakota’s mom has discovered the pile of her daughter’s hair, and headband, deposited on their porch. ::grins::

    Eh….. Masterius and fintin beat me to it.
    Rapunzel, Rapunzel! Let down your hair!

    Although in the second panel, top frame, she looks more like the new Emma Watson.

    Dakota can now cut her hair to her normal length and sell the rest for a tidy profit to a wig maker. I wonder if it all was worth it to her in retrospect…

    All that hair can’t be good for her lower back.

    Could Marigold swing by my place and take care of my bald pate?

    Good job unicorn! But I think you did it too much.

    God bless Adobe. That’s at least 3 layers of masking to get the dark on light on med effect on the hair.
