    Piro and Hair are probably both characters who will re-occur.
    .
    We know little of Piro’s character (beyond the bags), but Hair sees a retread of Knute. Though he seems more musical (and probably smarter – with some ambition).
    .
    To make sense in this strip, this gang will have to interact with Luann at some point. Dez may have some role in this.
    .
    Since Quill is at Moony too, they could first interact with him, or via the Drama teacher there. (Luann has some sort of part time job there, a ‘genius’ in stage design. )

    Tiff should be more than welcome, a familiar face.
    .
    Maybe they can move the party to her suite.

    The cartoonist is OK, but the retrospect is pointless.

  4. LDover commented on Luann 25 days ago

    Has Luann ever before been depicted as a poor dancer?
    .
    Her interest in all the school dances, the prom, starring in the school musical, etc. does not show her in that light.
    .
    Sure she can be a klutz at times. But this strip is just not Luann.

  5. LDover commented on Luann 25 days ago

    This is, IMO, one of the weakest strips in the entire Luann series.
    I see no point in having it here at all.
    .
    Delta was once a stereotyped black kid, into
    “expected things,” like loud music, wild dancing, etc. Greg gave her a new persona,
    a dedicated do-gooder.
    .
    Big switch.
    .
    Now we are back. why ???

    .
    Now we go back ????

    Aaron was in most of the early strips. Didn’t know who Luann was. At first he seemed very innocent of all boy-girl things.
    .
    BUT
    Then he became more interesting. Knew who Luann was.
    But Tiffany was always all over him.
    He was attracted to Tiff some. Not clear how much.
    .
    For a while, Aaron paid a bit of attention to Luann.
    They wrote together, joked, got locked in the library.
    There seemed to be some chance for Luann with Aaron.
    .
    He summers in Maine. - Has a deaf girlfriend there.
    Luann thinks she is fictional.
    Why would he invent such a girlfriend?
    Does Luann think that Aaron is inventing a bogus girlfriend to insulate himself from her?
    Later Luann is surprised to learn the girl is real.
    Aaron has even bothered to learn sign language.
    But rather soon, the deaf girl dumps Aaron.
    Not clear why.
    .
    Luann even had some dates with Aaron.
    Situations usually odd.
    Nancy was angry once because Aaron did not kiss Luann when he brought her home from a date.
    Luann was worried about it.
    Yet they become a sort of couple, but only more or less friends — at least it seemed.
    Luann would like more.
    Then Aaron gets deeply entangled (secretly) with a much older girl, Diane.
    Maybe he was seduced by her? Not clear.
    Luann finds them out.
    The mutual feeling is that he has sort of “cheated on” Luann.
    .
    Then he goes off to Hawaii.
    Luann see him there, but he turns up with a Chinese girlfriend.
    He seems apologetic to Luann, which makes little sense if they had no commitment.
    He later tells Luann by e-mail that he has broken up with the Chinese girl, not clear why. Did she dump him?
    .
    Aaron tries to contact Luann by e-mail.
    She is fed up with him.
    Yet she still has the occasional dream about him.
    .
    So Aaron was not so boring a character.
    Attracts females.
    Has his defects.
    Not clear exactly what.

    Gunther almost assuredly had Spanish in HS.
    .
    That does not mean that he would catch what the
    driver said as well as Rosa did.
    .
    TJ and Toni are not in the picture but could be there. The table has two sides, well actually four. But we see only one view.
    .
    But Toni could be at work, and TJ may be outside — bringing in the pony that he is giving her.

    Over 300 seconds . . . ?
    ,
    ?
    .
    Does it blow up?
    Did TJ have one in his truck?

  10. LDover commented on Luann about 1 month ago

    And TJ and Shannon even form a bond within the DeGroot context.
    .
    Surprises everyone but them. They share a commonality.
