Its a cartoon which is a different non-reality
Hey thanks I knew that I should have written 180 degrees. Thanks for clarifying what i meant. On the parent and older generation, lets wait and see. This is a regular four panel strip, so its hard to cram every dimension in every arc. I don’t think that Gunther will shy away. Like I said, this is a huge leap for him, and the strip, but I think Rosa will help him grow up, and his potential will be really enhanced by this experience.
Although Greg will surprise. I think he is about to deal with the next big change, and remember we haven’t gotten Toni and Brad married, and lets not forget what’s going to happen with our favorite brat Shannon.
I just have to put my two cents in on this whole arc. Usually they finish on Saturday, so this being Saturday I wonder if we move on to another character. Some people say its the end of the strip, but I think that is totally unwarranted. After all there is Toni and Brad who are getting married, then there is the Luann and Quill relationship, not to speak of of all the characters moving on from high school to college, or to other parts of life. So I think there will be a lot of this kind of change coming, although with Greg Evans there are a lot of surprises as well. As far as Gunther and Rosa I say bravo!! After all these smart beautiful kids—yes Gunther is handsome in his own way, and if a babe like Rosa loves him, who are we to question it—are only 18 or 19. Old enough to get a passport and join the Peace Corps I believe. They have plenty of time to go to college, to get married or not, and to embark on life that requires getting up and going to a job, and bills, and all the reality we all face. Besides, Rosa is going to make a man out of Gunther. If that is the way the arc is meant to develop get ready for a 360 degree change in Gunther the next time you see him. He will be a confident, dare I say manly kind of guy, in a quiet way.
The romance in this is too great—here a hesitant momma’s boy falls in love with a smart adventuresome girl, and goes off with her, getting over all of those fears to be with her. Everything else is, in my opinion, just irrelevant.
Oh one more thing: I doubt if Quill and Gunther’s mom are carrying on anything. Anything is possible,as I said, Greg likes to surprise. But I highly doubt that in this family strip. Gunther’s mom is looking forward to doing some things she wants to do, and Gunther is becoming a man. Lucky dude!!
I need to put my two cents in here. Of course I hasten to say that this is a cartoon, subject to the whims of Greg Evans, but I don’t agree and I think you misunderstand women entirely. She is testing him to see if he can get off the dime and chose her, or chose Mooney. She will be happy either way, happier if he comes with her, and is happy too. But she wants him to make her his first choice, with no reservations. Its hardly a brush-off. This girl is too smart to play that game. She plays for real. Now the issue is whether Gunther has the backbone to play too.
I actually feel a little pity for Tiffany. She has no boyfriend, because she is so self-involved I know, but that may mask a deeper insecurity. But on the other hand her strength is is beauty and make-up, and clothes. She is always pictured doing her face, or her eyebrows, or commenting on clothes. It is self-centered true, but she does have that skill-set. So maybe this leads to something good for her.

Come on, Our girl Luann is not a scholar. Clearly the Bernice, Delta, Rosa (who is going to Yale) and Gunther are the fictional school academic stars. I teach at a community-college so I am not criticizing them, but that is where Luann is going to school in the Fall. She probably falls somewhere in the middle in the graduating class rankings I would wager.
Opposites attract, and that is clearly the situation with Crystal and Knute. Plus she defends him with Tiffany, who has no bf. My big question or comment is, what no tatoos on Crystal? Usually young millinnials and post-millinnials (yes we are there) have a lot of tat, particularly if they are counter-culture, such as Goth.
They are both naughty, they are late teenagers in love and lust. The only issue is how far Greg carries this particular arc. Hmmmm? Probably a whiff.
You know I have not commented for awhile, but when I do it’s because I have been sort of compelled to do so to defend Luann herself. Of course she is meant to be a person, who is not perfect, but is a very normal, goodhearted, romantic,and lets face it, horny young teenage female. All perfectly normal. She is definitely not a loser because she decided to go to community college (it’s not junior college Greg, particularly if it’s a public institution); there are countless examples of extremely successful and smart people who attended community college. She misses her boyfriend, which is very important to her, so she has normal frustration. Lets see how this arc works out. It seems like pretty normal boyfriend/girlfriend interplay to me.

I think they are being Senior sarcastic, but it will be far more interesting and spur a really good arc. Lets see. But I am just about positive they are being sarcastic.
