For help on how to follow a comic title,
Uh folks? Mark is a RADIO jock, not a TV host. And radio does use ratings.
I am not even sure whether anyone is being critical of Dawn’s haircut except Dawn herself. At the time, that style was a trend, and surely Candace isn’t the only one who thinks Dawn looks great because at that age, staying on trend is seen as a big deal.
Bern. It’s that time of the month.
Seems to me the “good parents” ought to notice that Liz is bummed because April ruined her drawing. And yes, it was ruined. Just because she stepped away for a minute doesn’t mean it wasn’t important to her. April may not have meant anything bad by it, but that doesn’t make it feel any better to Liz.
Bernice. Get therapy.
That is a good point. Shannon spends more time with Brad and Toni, or with Shannon, than with her own father. The “bratty kid with no boundaries” trope is getting old. How about showing some growth on her part, and I don’t mean physical.
Is money the only thing people like you worry about? Were you this concerned when the last guy handed trillions in tax breaks to people who are already obscenely wealthy? Literally all we need to do to pay for damn near everything we need in this country is to TAX THE FILTHY RICH. Why aren’t they paying their fair share? Why are you, and I, and everyone else who isn’t on the list of the richest people in the world, paying MORE than they are?
I think you’re right. Today’s strip? This is called foreshadowing. Possibly leading to a surprise pregnancy. But we’ll see.
She’s not actually typing with her eyes closed. That’s an artist’s trick to hint at her emotional composure; she’s fast, efficient and confident on the typewriter. You can see the same way of depicting confidence or self-satisfaction when they draw someone, for example, strutting out of a room after making a snappy comeback, or posing in fancy clothes. I’ve seen it done multiple times in this comic.
Thank you for a very sensible comment that seems beyond some people. Just because she’s still living in her parents’ home does not mean she never pays for anything.
