Interesting group of strips this week.

First time we see Charlotte and Tharqa although they don't have names or established personalities yet.

We also get some insight into Karen and Marshall and their relationship back when she was still sympathetic.

And here's Amy Mebberson, apparently one of the select few guest artists the fandom as a whole liked. As they should. Her style here was less detailed than even Gisèle's was then, but the characters' emotions really come through. It also would've been cool to see her P&A character renditions in the style she used shortly after for T's OEL manga Divalicious.

47. Every day of my life, Aggie.
48. Oh, yes. You'll show your ex how awesome you are. You'll show them all!
49. Xtra 1: That's money you could have given to the Salvation Army, Aggie.
50. Xtra 2: I want a secret bathroom. With rose pink tiling and support bars and...
51. Weights 1: MARSHALL: "Women, however..."
52. Pen, that first thing you said was creepy and a microaggression. I really hope you didn't and don't do this with Hel and Shel.
53. Pen, this next thing you said is narcissistic and sexist.
54. HAWT... um.. uh. There is something WRONG with me. (My sister felt incredibly conflicted crushing on Superboy from Young Justice. "Why did they give him the voice of Nolan North?")

Or to a good cause that doesn't double as an anti-LGBT lobby group and that doesn't refuse to help people because of their preference or gender identity.

Tsk! See what you did, Twitcher? Your suggestion to Aggie breached the comic's fourth wall and travelled several years forward through time (in-universe time), producing... this. :twisted:

I mention the Salvation Army not only because Penny is seen donating her Skater Grrl shirt to it, but because my sister rang the bells for them a few years back as part of a college assignment. She researched the charities open to her, and discovered that nearly all of them had unsavory policies. The Salvation Army was one of the very few that would hire a disabled girl. In short, she took what she could get.

47: One of the few times we see Penny initiating hostilities toward Aggie.
Xtra 1: One of Aggie's most hypocritical moments.

47: Somewhat baffling that Aggie said that aloud to, apparently, herself. I mean, I talk out loud to myself on a regular basis, but usually not that loudly.
Xtra 1: Not Aggie's best moment, no. Also, that outfit doesn't flatter either of them.
51. Much as I love Amy Mebberson, Marshall is not quite... pretty enough in this style. Karen's really cute, though.
No more zoos!

For the record, I am entirely against breaking up storylines like this. "Weights" should've started in it's own thread.

Too late. Your chance to state this was here. :twisted:
