If Greg’s goal is to make EVERYONE in the strip extremely unlikable, he is well on his way. I hate Quill’s complete lack of depth, Luann’s attitude in almost EVERY aspect, and Bernice is just a … well, fill in the blank. Ugh. Make the strip about Brad and Toni and get rid of everyone else.
Dump ’er. Do it now, Q.
The awfulness of the Luann/Quill ‘romance’ makes me long for the sweet release of DEATH. Quill’s an empty cipher, Luann has turned into a complete (fill in blank), and their ‘lines’ to each other are nauseatingly sappy and maudlin. Seriously, about to drop this strip very soon unless Quill catches koala pox and dies horribly. At least that would make me laugh.
I suggest changing the name of the strip to ‘Brad ’n’ Toni’ and dropping Luann and Quill altogether.
More drippy mawkishness in re: Luann/Quill. Please stop, this tripe is AWFUL. And all the commenters pointing out Luann’s utter selfishness are dead right, into the bargain,
Omigosh, what happened, Dave? ‘Fresh time’? ‘Roastring’? ‘Amonst’? ‘Stck’?
And this ain’t the first time, either.
Good gosh – is it necessary this strip be in 4 point type? I couldn’t even read parts of it with reading glasses (which I don’t even normally need).
It’ll be a ’g’day’ now that this sickeningly mawkish storyline is back-burnered for a while.
The existence of Mallard Fillmore is a complete mystery to me. Never mind it’s feckless and risible political extremism – it’s just plain NOT funny at all. At least, not in the way it means to be.
