I bet every astronomer in the region sent Marigold packages of carrots, apples, alfalfa, and sugar cubes the next day.
I think she used “The Klaatu Method” (from The Day the Earth Stood Still) to make sure no one got hurt. Unicorns (and super-advanced alien races) are nice like that.
Before I saw the links to the art her picture is based on, I was a bit concerned that Marigold would draw herself all fenced off like that. I guess that even if it were her idea it would be a little too first-year-psychology-student to assign any particular conclusion though. (The only conclusion anyone should ever make about Marigold is that she’s awesome, and so very sparkly.)
Then he ate the doctor’s brain before shambling off into the night.
So, you keep making everything about your own layout enormous – so that we have to scroll like crazy to see our comics – but you’re still shrinking the comics themselves so that even on large screens they’re difficult to read? (Otherwise we could just zoom out so that your layout is less obnoxious.) When are you going to realize that we come here for the comics, not mediocre web design?
That’s an extremely clever bit of social commentary. (…or maybe I’m just reading way too much into it.) Beautiful as always in any case. Thanks.
I really like the way Marigold thinks.
I wonder if there’s a form of funhouse mirror (or other, or a certain view, etc.) that would make her appear so unflattering that Marigold would be able to look away in disgust… and maybe even gain a little resistance to her self-gazing addiction.
It is, though it took me 30+ years to realize. Too bad Nate wouldn’t know that though.
