    And, Gerry, I hope you were around yesterday to see all the speculation about Tiffany. Sure, some of it was the same flippant anti Tiffany stuff, but most was about why she might be like that and where she might have come from. It seemed so wrong for you not to be there.

    Thing is, girls like Tiffany rarely change, unless they get into a church group, get “radically saved” and turn their lives around (which could be another interesting angle), but even then they don’t always change that much unless they SEE the rotten way they treat people and make the decision to make drastic changes.

    Gerry has left us? :( That’s sad, Gerry is a fun poster, while I don’t like Tiff, it certainly is no reason for someone to quit. For the longest time, I was the only one who thought Shannon was actually not a bad little girl, other people put her (my favorite character) down; but, I never let it bother me; just kept pointing out how lonely she was and soon, others could see the good in her; so, don’t let others hatred of Tiff bother you, you, like anyone else, have a right to your opinion; however, the same goes for everyone, whether they like Tiff or not.

    I complain about that and I get a wave of comments that state Luann has out grown her and Toni is taking her place and a bunch of other antiBernice posts.

    ^^How is pointing out the fact that Toni is now Luann’s main sounding board (which if you look at the strips is the truth) “Anti-Bernice”? I happen to be very fond of Bern myself, but, Greg seems to be writing her out, as you yourself have said; so pointing out how Bernice is no longer Luann’s closest friend isn’t anti-Bernice, but, just stating a fact. As far as the rest of us being “cattle”; that is a personal insult to the rest of us; being part of a majority opinion doesn’t make one cattle, we chose to agree, or disagree with the majority, not follow blindly; get over yourself Lev, you are not “holier than thou”!

    Well I see how this is gonna play out.

    Tiff acts mopey and sad because she didn’t get her way, Gunther feels sympathy, starts to get taken advantage of by her, then once she gets her fix she leaves and she learns nothing.

    Don’t fall for it again, Gunth.

    Great comments, Levi. For that matter, lots of input all around. (which is why I seldom get a chance to comment on Luanniverse…too popular!) But it sure is one of my favourites! Why? Because a lot of the characters remind me so much of my high school aquaintances. Who didn’t have an archetypical Tiffany in their crowd? Or a Gunther? A Bernice, etc, etc?Sitting back and enjoying the patter……

    Gerry Lee, just in case you didn’t get a chance, I wanted to reemphasize a couple of things from when I responded, right as soon as I saw your post on Sunday…==I agree with you how it’s unfair it seems…. I related how many people will flock to a program about a serial killer and some even excuse such a character, because of the premise that "the character also gets the ‘bad guy’ ", but will unfairly condemn a 17 Y.O. comic strip character who has committed no crimes… and to me, it seems truly unfair…. ==And as others have stated, many of us (definitely including myself) also state views that are not necessarily shared by everyone, but still we all have a right to post and express our views, and yours was original, and positive…… you’d find that amongst the negative posters, there are those that you can engage in healthy and constructive discussions with, and you add a great point of view….==Tiffany has been portrayed as “Luann’s nemesis”, but she is a very important member of the cast, as portrayed in many promotional pictures and the like for this strip… it’s just the way that Professor Moriarty was integral to Sherlock Holmes, among other examples…. as Lev has stated many times, if everyone in the strip acted and were drawn exactly the same way, with exactly the same expressions and the like, there would really be no strip…. so again, please reconsider… and also again, you’d be pleasantly surprised at how many have actually commented things that you’d be encouraged to read….-Jay

    If the truth were known, there is usually someone like Tiff in any group of girls/ women….no matter the age of the individuals in the group. I don’t think Tiff realizes how her personality and actions are grating on everyone’s nerves ( including many of the readers of this comic). She truly believes she is perfect….and above everyone else.

    Tiff may be self- centered, but she also seems to be very ambitious. She joined this group because she aspires to be an actress which is also playing a huge role in how she interacts with the others. One piece of advice job counsellors always give is ‘if you want a specific job you have to see yourself in it’ and act the part as much as possible. Tiff is certainly doing that.

    The fact that so many adults are enjoying this comic is terrific but the goal isn’t supposed to be to shoot people down because of their comments. At the same time, it is not our place to continually drag the concept of ‘a sex life for the characters’ into every single discussion on this thread. This is still a kids comic strip and I would strongly bet parents have stopped their kids from reading the comments because some of them have become a titch too ‘blue’.

    This strip is supposed to be light reading and some are making it a battlefield of viewpoints. Everyone should be welcome here even if they don’t accept certain ideas about the characters.

    Just have a good time everyone! Lighten up!

    What amazes me is, if some don’t like what’s been said about a character or if for some pathetic person are attacked themselves in the comment section..Then perhaps, just enjoy the comics you like, but just tell yourself to don’t check the comment section...We didn’t have them when these things were in newspapers..I guess the though of getting the chance of others reading what you think is appealing. But there is a price..Garry Lee, I do hope you’re still reading and enjoying the strip and maybe just not stopping by here.

    It’s just a comic strip for Pete’s sake. These characters are not real people so even though there are vain self centered people in the world Tiff isn’t one of them. She is just lines on paper or a computer screen.

    I’ve been reading Luann for about 6-7 years now. The last two years on-line after we stopped getting the paper. I am sometimes blown away by the number of “posts”. Your posts are always fun and informative. But there’s lots of drivel out there by some posters that’s worthless. I think the point of the comment by fosdick (echoed by John and chefwen) is that some people seem to hang here all day writing assumptions to the personality or thoughts of a make believe person. Or little witty banter with songs or commercials. I wish there was a way to do a “sort” so one could just delete much of this stuff. At least you keep it real and what it is. Yours, very short comments, and a couple other regular commenters are usually all i like to read now. I’m sure I’ll offend some folks and apologize up front if this strikes a nerve..

    To offer a fresh perspective (hopefully)…

    You know, I’m new to the comments section on this site, and I have to say what I have seen is rather sad. I expect some people to be all for the “bad” characters because that’s how comic strips work. What I didn’t expect was to see people jumping down each other’s throats over opinions. If someone wants to believe that Tiffany can change, then thats great. If someone else wants to think that she never will, thats fine too. There is absolutely no need to get so worked up over this, or any, comic strip.

    Being new, I have to say that if these comments were the first I had read for the comic strip, I may not have kept reading. It’s OK to be excited about a particular character, but please keep the personal attacks and insults out of the comments section. Don’t call people names or generalize. Otherwise, all you will accomplish is to scare off any new commenters that might happen to read the strip. If you do that, then you will be arguing with the same people forever with no new people to offer fresh perspectives.

    In summary: – Comment what you like about the strip, but leave the personal attacks out of your comments – Leave inappropriate comments about ANY character out of your comments – Try to remember that there are people behind these usernames who have feelings and lives outside this strip – Enjoy the comic as a comic, and move on with your day

    I said it before, and I’ll say it again… some people have jobs and schedules that allow them to comment more frequently, some not… some have a way that they like to express themselves, some don’t … ==But to assume and generalize that some posters have no life? What about Facebook or Twitter or the like?…. do the people saying “get a life” go there all the time? Or watch a certain TV show or network all the time? Following some celebrity?… What do we talk about at work all the time? Be honest….It’s easy to tell people to “get a life”, but I’m sure that somebody somewhere is probably saying the same to us at some point in time… what entertains one does not entertain all.. what some people do, some don’t… but never assume that the people have no life, because you’re not there with them….we’re just posters on a screen, here…==Personally, I myself only read a select number of comics….10 or 12…. of that, I only post to even fewer on a regular basis…. with the exception of this strip and 1 or 2 others, the rest are “one joke gag” strips, so no need to post a bunch everywhere else… here is the only place that I post the most… why? For one thing, Luann is an involving strip… it is popular for a reason.. story and characters… more in depth ones than some others… also, when I first saw the comments on here, I saw how fun it was, and how “witty and creative” people’s posts were… it stimulated me to want to, as well… so sure we all have differences of opinion… tastes, too… but as someone said yesterday, if we don’t like a comment, we’re not forced to read it… we can scroll on…….

    For what is it worth, I really admire Tiff’s spunk and can do attitude. I have written many times that she actually stirs the pot and gets things done. I look for her to rebound in this current arc – she may take a few hits, but any decent villain always rebounds.

    Other than that I can only say “Moooo!”

    Wow. Condemn a girl for a couple of youthful pranks. We judge these kids so morally when they are teens and when they are adults they get rewards and praise for bad behavior, whether in religion, politics, finance, or whatever. I think Tiff will learn from these endeavors and, for example, end up owning, lawfully, the mortgage on Luann’s house. And, in her cheery fashion, will pick through your stuff on the curb for some charity event while having Lu evicted. Just business.

    It’s just a comic strip. It happens to be my current favorite one, but it’s just a comic strip. Getting offended by what anyone on here says is laughable. I think you are doing the right thing Gerry. If it hurts you to read to other people’s comments then not doing so is what I would recommend. People’s views on Luann or Greg Evans are not of much value. The only thing that matters is how you feel about yourself. So, I say ignore the trolls and pervs that infiltrate this comments section. It’s your self-esteem that needs working on. Good luck with that. When you are able to find confidence in your voice come on back.

    I agree that there should be bad guys or else it would be like most other strips (which are more funny but bit one-dimensional). However there could a number of bad guys in luann apart from a hateful bimbo. Why not just have TJ, Ann, world, crystal and Bernice be the bad guys? That’s plenty for this strip.

    I appreciate your comments, Leviticus. (Interesting juxtaposition of screen name with sensitive comments – Leviticus being a Bible book of list of abominables heh heh/)

    It’s a comic strip and one can take both the characters and posters too seriously. I’ve ragged on Tiffany, myself. I also suspect strongly that Greg has the character firmly in mind in a more rounded way.

    One can see that there is a hypersensitivity in her. Such people often exhibit traits like Tiffany to mask their insecurities and pain. If Greg ever does a background arc on her, I will be happy to see it.

    Of the teens, only Tiffany and maybe Crystal have not grown as they have aged. The coterie around Luann have. All are deeper now than when the strip started. Even TJ. who was kind of the male counterpart to Tiffany in his own way – the heavy, complicating Brad’s life. Perhaps Tiff will have her turn.

    So she behaves badly toward people and pouts when she isn’t accepted and adored. No sympathy from me. It would be different if she were kind and was still rejected. Then you can fault the others. But she would rather indulge in self-pity than try to learn from what her actions do to her.

    “You freaks need to get a life…”^There’s a saying that when you point a finger, then three are pointing back at you..

Even sports? Something?

    Does anyone remember the show Little House on the Prairie? Nellie was a horrible brat and mean to everyone, she eventually grew up and became decent. Hopefully the same thing will happen to Tiffany.

    I’m kind of hoping Evans does some character developement with Tiff. There may be a reason she acts like she does. Maybe all the need for attention – of any kind – is a cry for help. Of course maybe she’s manipulating those around her, but a little depth to Luann fans’ farorite villaness sounds like fun.

    I get the real reason you are leaving the group here. is not only do you identify with tiff.is that possibly in some ways you actually act like her in real life.you EXPECT to be the center of attention from everyone. you expect that you are supposed to get your way every single time.…….in many ways, your attitude about tiff reminds me of my husband ex-wife in how she felt her fav chars should be treated like. since she did identify with them…..

    Is it possible that Greg Evans is not making a point about Tiffany but about the fact that there are nice boys/men out there like Quill who will go the extra mile to prove their faithfulness?

    So, anyone who disagrees with your opinion that Luann has a pig’s nose and is nothing but shallow, whereas Bernice can do no wrong, is ‘cattle’ according to you. You have the only original ideas. Anyone who has other ideas, by definition, is just parroting — or should I say ‘mooing’ — what others have already opined.

    You have a very high opinion of yourself. Comments like those you made to Gerry Lee explain why no one shares your high opinion of you, and why you can’t convince anyone that Luann is horrible and Bernice is wonderful.

    Trying to exchange ideas with you, to continue your animal motif, is like trying to teach a pot-belly pig to dance. It doesn’t work, and it only enrages the piggy.

    Please consider a screen name more appropriate to your viewpoint.

    Antagonism is one of the basic tenets of entertainment in society. No story told goes without having some antagonist, some ne’er do well, some villain. They are an integral part of the story. Without the bad, how do you distinguish the good? And I don’t know too many people (none actually) that wouldn’t get bored into a catatonic stated without the push and pull of good and evil in their entertainment choices. Take all of Tiffany’s, Dirk’s, Ann’s, maybe even some of T.J’s scenes out of the strip, what would you be left with? Would you still enjoy it? Would it still move you enough to comment? Me, personally, no it wouldn’t. I’m old school. I root for the good guys but without the bad guys who would the good guys have to overcome?

    As far as the supercilious comments about getting a life and that this is a comic strip, I would like to echo IamJayBluE and others’ comments. Why is it that I have to “get a life” if I want to engage in a lively conversation about my favorite comic strip? Do you not watch tv or read books or go to the movies? I can just imagine that you must only engage in the most intellectual of conversations at all times.

    It’s all good. They’re teenagers and still growing up. Remember yourself as a teenager and how different you are now? I feel sorry for Tiffany because she doesn’t really know what she wants, though it’s pretty obvious that she is jealous of Luann. She doesn’t know how to express herself yet. I’m hoping that the next arc will feature a new guy and that he falls in love with Tiffany.

    “She is intelligent and fun”^I also think that she helps us see different aspects of Luann… instead of thinking that Luann “could do no wrong”, or that “there’s only one way to look at things”, Bern seems to add a different take, and a funny response to both another character, and the situation (like during the “road trip”, or when Luann left herself open for their “zings” when she related that strange dream with Aaron and the “x-ray eyes”)

    These are comic strip characters, after all, which for the most part means they are “types”.

    If you think commenters snipe here, you ought to read Funky Winkerbean & Crankshaft on Comics AZ. They are so bad that some have to be pulled. Not just snarky. Mean-spirited, attacking, aggressive.

    I like all the characters in Luann, and Tiff and Ann are the gals we love to hate. Thbey are necessary to the script.

    Whoever said this, " I’m hoping that the next arc will feature a new guy and that he falls in love with Tiffany." I’m sorry but I lost you in the 200+ comments, but although I think this would be an amusing arc, I think it more likely an Elwood, say, would be a match for Tiffany where there is mutual benefits that have little to do with emotion.

    ps. in all the back and forth today, I realize I love all the characters here and miss them all when gone too long.

    “And who would he match? Ox and Tiffany or perhaps TJ and Tiffany.”^Well, I’ll humor you and engage in this question, (even if it is a “tongue in cheek" one), as it is more constructive than what went on earlier….I’ll answer this way:

    Maybe for the first one, definitely for the second one… definitely no , that is….. ==Yesterday, I was mentioning that since TJ threw her “under the fire engine” and got away without a scratch, pretty much, why would she want someone like him, unless either her inner esteem is really lower than even the low that it would seem, or she would be one incredibly forgiving person….. or she has a very short memory…. with Oxford, like you’ve said, as the “jock” could be accepted in the “A” circles, so in that sense would fit into her ambitions somewhat, in maintaining status (though he has a big heart and not so much a big mind at times), and she seemed to genuinely appreciate his defense of her against Leslie….==But to be honest, if, as people are now wondering, if Gunther would play matchmaker, it just may be possible that another character could come about, whether temporary, or if she’s getting a long-term person…maybe another foil/antagonist for Luann and/or Quill… but before today, I didn’t consider that there would be any matchmaking going on… but this question is thought provoking, and constructive, compared to earlier….

    everyone who reads and/or comments to this cartoon has their favorites. I like them all; mostly Luann, Oz, and Crystal. I think TJ is mysterious and not so bad a person.

    No problem with somebody liking Tiffany — I didn’t like the trashing of Luann. I don’t think Luann is mean-spirited at all and tho I think she sometimes can be rude and even offensive, she shows that she is learning the “rules” of civility that every teen eventually needs to learn.

    It seems like the strip has missed out on some opportunities with this drama camp plotline. After three weeks of strips, the only people who have been shown at the camp are Quill, Tiffany, Gunther, and the camp director. None of the other campers have had a word of dialogue. We’re just seeing the regular characters interact with people they already know well. This sequence could have been a good opportunity for them (especially Tiffany) to meet new people who could either be friends or rivals to them, but instead it’s just the same small group in a different location.

    Ben and Crystal might be cool together. Especially since Crystal already has an awkward history with Bernice over Zane. Did I say a couple days ago that Ben was too dull for Crystal? I guess I lack consistency. Also, I like Crystal and Knute together, so I’m being a bit inconsistent there too.

    I don’t usually comment, but this seems to be “open mike night.” (love the give and take dialog by the way) Some have lamented on what seems to be Bernice’s dwindling appearances. Looking back when I was in high school, it seems that most of us didn’t have exactly the same circle of friends when we graduated as we had walking in the door as freshman. The person I had as a best friend chose a different path our senior year, thus beginning our separation. We all know in life things change and evolve, people take those other paths. Maybe this is what’s happening with Luann and Bernice. They are changing and maturing (hopefully), so their needs for friendship change as well. And maybe this is just a different angle….

    Gunther is such a sweetheart. He’ll get it out of her. She has a deep need. It will be nice to see the deeper side of her. She reminds me of Nelly on Little House on the Prairie. She just needed the right guy. Tiffany needs someone who will look past her facade. Even her best friend doesn’t know that part of her.
