Listen women always obsess on whether they are pretty or beautiful enough, even when they know they are. Luann has a hot bf herself, and is making progress, and others see it, her boss at her job for example,
This is why this is such a great strip, and I try to catch it every day. It always is a little bite of fun and surprise, and you want to see where the story goes next, and with which characters. It has cheered me up many a day.

I have not commented in many months but I can’t resist commenting today. Some of these comments are sorry to say so far off the mark to me, totally clueless. One comment has Crystal talking to TJ and eying him as if there is some kind of romantic interest. The whole idea of Crystal and Knute is that opposites attract. I think the more perceptive point is that Crystal is showing legs (nice ones), smiling, and does not look as Goth (who always has shorts on), and Knute, who clearly is her bf, actually looks nicely dressed, for him. The fact that Greg has 11 characters in one long panel, in a nice perspective is great, and I think Shannon is cute, and out of the mouths of babes. Also of course Brad and Toni are acting as surrogate parents which is very significant in this strip. Also the fact that not everyone is in the strip just means that we are looking at different parts of the gallery, and all the characters who are usually in the strip might be in another part of the gallery, and some are not even in town, Delta for example who is at Howard University. I just think this is a really sweet rite of passage kind of panel for the different characters as they get older surrounding the head of Luann, who the strip is about after all, I think it portends some future events, such as the wedding of Toni and Brad, and maybe let me throw everything to the winds, another (?) proposal on the part of Quill, but most of all it shows our characters in a really nice, sweet, and well-drawn light. Thanks Greg!!

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.
