If you are willing to accept reader requests, I have one: could you please remove whatever that thing on McKenzie’s lower lip is supposed to be, and let us forget it ever happened? I assume that it’s some sort of piercing, which is disgusting enough in real life, but the problem in comic land is that the resolution isn’t sufficient to resolve it, so every time it appears it looks like an accidental blob of ink.
One minor effect age-related effect comes from the artwork: the (largish) sizes of the characters’ heads make their bodies look “shorter”, giving them a slightly childlike appearance. Early on, I even thought they might be in junior high school; I still have trouble thinking of them as 20-somethings.
I wish this strip had appeared during the first week of the strip, even before the scholarship mini-arc. It would have clarified the age question and made a lot of the strips easier to understand.
And misspelling “g o d d a m n” emphasizes the perfection even more! ;-)
That’s how you can tell that they are prehistoric cave men: they are still spelling it with a “D”. See: HtTpS://EN.wiktionary.OrG/wiki/pidgeon
The reason that I asked is that sort of “also” placement is a frequent pattern among Germans when speaking English (because the German word “also” is a particle, but with a different meaning, roughly equivalent to the English word “thus”).
My first impression was that this strip muddled the issue of the ages of these characters. I thought the scholarship arc earlier on meant that they were high school seniors, but the blurb at The Daily Cartoonist indicated that they are supposed to be 20-somethings (therefore already college students). Mugging for selfies and video “likes” seems a little junior high-ish, but perhaps that’s just the way she is. The feature is still very new, so I’m more than willing to give it time for these issues to settle down and develop.
With hips like those, she should try out with the Chicago Bears.
Is “also today” just a typo, or the result of an awkward translation?
Because other readers are interested in your thoughts, and not in gimmicky icons. :-)
