    Does that mean JJ isn’t a babe? Because she was Mike’s girlfriend, fiancé, wife.

    JJ may have been a babe years ago, but Kim has intelligence and an ability to connect with Alex in a good way.

    You have to remember that before she met Mike, JJ had run off with Stupidhead.

    Kim is indeed a babe, and Zeke is always a creep.

    A old story that a , lady friend told me a long time ago , she said that ( some women don’t want the SOB , but they don’t want anyone else to have him either ) . It is strange how some women think ?

    I’ve been waiting for this moment ever since the b!tch ran off with “Uncle Stupidhead”.

    It’ll all be downhill for those two from now on—and they deserve it!!

    hee hee, I called it yesterday. (ad don’t remember this bit) but there she was all set to rub mike’s nose in it even though she was always the one causing grief, this was the best way to hit her hard. Mike’s got a better life and a hot girlfriend and she’s got…zeke

    Revenge can really be the sweetest thing. Mike earned the the right to have it, what with the misery JJ put him through.

    JJ hasn’t been traded in on a newer model, she was stolen and had to be replaced. Check your chassis lady. You’re still good, just not necessary.

    Once is understandable, but Mike nailing down two babes of this magnitude (creative-imaginative-beautiful, smart-sassy-beautiful) is wild. If only we all could have the luck with the ladies of a comic writer’s avatar in the world he creates.

    There is a BBC clip of a Korean expert being interviewed over a video link a few years back (early adopter, way pre-Covid). His little kids came romping in and an Asian woman came running in grab them. He was a Korean expert, fluent speaker of Korean, lived in Korea… but commentators assumed she was the nanny. Turned out she was his wife and a highly qualified professional. Things never change, assumptions.

    Kim should have met them at the door with a skimpy top on with the necessary one shoulder strap falling down the arm. I’m disappointed.

    Props to Trudeau for that third panel. By removing all the extraneous details, you focus on JJ’s reaction.

    JJ might have been hoping to get back with Mike & dump Zeke. She have a place to stay (instead of her car) while she’s working on her big art installation.

    With regard to JJ, I think it’s important to remember that she is to some degree damaged goods, having been abandoned by her mother. There’s a through-line.

    Enter Alex. “Mom. Uncle Stupid Head. Hey, Kim, want to do some coding before dad comes home?”

    Ok, I cheated a bit and looked at the “art”. This comic is from Dec. 13, 1996 and actually predates the one that we saw recently of Alex not getting a good Christmas present. The actual proposal was on a Sunday so we won’t see that but the “art” itself debuted on April 14, 1997. I’d say that it was fugly but that would be praising it. At least it’s really large though, as promised!
