A perfect arc for this character. She is being true to her personality, as we’ve come to understand it, and life’s lessons are coming.
When Greg Evans pays attention to his characters, he really shines.
Luann is one of the very better comics. I appreciate how each character is a unique drawing, as opposed to cookie cutter type characters in Peanuts or BC. This does tend to raise expectations about each character being an individual we can make assumptions about, and have expectations of, in their way of dealing with people.
One frequent criticism is that Greg’s characters don’t stay true to themselves. Characters seem to act out of character at times. I was genuinely annoyed at a couple of arcs, because the characters seemed to be acting out of convenience to the story line, more than as expressions of personalty creating a story arc.
It takes a superior writer/artist to even engage me at that level. Luann has a great cast of supporting characters. This strip, to me, is the easiest to become annoyed at , and the easiest to be enjoyed.
I have to quit followng this strip for a while… These two guys need time to go away
It could also be new medications or something…
The characer’s motivations don’t make sense. They are drawn to be liked and understood… but the writing has become downright bizzare.
I WANT to like this comic again…. I thought I liked the characters… but I have no way to relate to such odd stuff…. I hope the author is okay…..
Maybe a stroke, or a bout of depression could explain this storyline.
I have no idea of these character’s motivations. Nobody is making enough sense to follow. I’m hoping the next story line comes soon.
Well yeah, they have exaggerated features…This one is a sneer and a leer.
Very few comic characters are genuinely ugly. Most cartoonsts don’t see a point to drawing genuinely ugly characters.
It’s such a clever plot….to gain an advantage in international competition by trolling Americans and making them mad at each other…. Though I think he might have stolen the idea from a “Pinky and the Brain” episode.
