Where did his hands go? The jacket looks artificially extended. Not to mention you'd think that arm would be at least slightly angled to hold the book.
Why is she telling Susan this?
Because Grace and Tedd clearly don't talk about anything ever. Seriously, you think this is the type of thing that would have come up. Oh wait, I bet it did, and Tedd was too much of a douche-jerk to tell her.
Also...does anyone else get...tracty...vibes off of this?
YOU DON'T KNOW HOW HARD IT IS TO BE A MAAAAAN. YOU FIND ALL YOUR FEMALE FRIENDS ATTRACTIVE, AND YOU CAN'T EVEN FUCK THEM D:
I mean, there is character development, and then there is just being inconsistent. First, Grace was tortured innocent who knew about sex. Then she was a tortured innocent who didn't know about sex. Now she is kawaii innocent who doesn't know about sex. In ACTUAL time she's...apathetic?
But, that's another criticism for another day, lets focus on this.
Tedd is a douchey jerk bag. Sure, he'll have his "justification" but it's a shallow justification that implies a complete lack of communication.
Also, with the way Grace talks about the human body, she sounds like some sort of strawman evangelist. The body...it is perfection...
Seriously what the hell just happened to Grace of old, that was just wondering why she couldn't be nude when it was more convenient?
Except it's not that much more convenient, but hey!
Shive has been avoiding the "face dialogue face dialogue" thing as of late, but his panels have also been getting incredibly crowded. I don't think it helps that most pages are not that horizontally challenged.
OH MY GOD THANK GOODNESS SUSAN DID NOT REFER TO MALE SEXUALITY IN ANY WAY. THAT WOULD JUST BE AWKWARD.
Also, it's nice to know that all females have the exact same tastes in males. There is some bio-science out there, that says females have a much wider variety in tastes than males. Now, whether that's true or not, I don't really care.
What I do know is that males and females have been arguing with their friends since who knows how long about whether X or Y is hotter.
There should not be some white-washing of opinions.
There should not be a group of people who all think the same things about a bunch of subtle things.
First of all, once again, Shive is telling what Susan is going through, instead of showing.
And what he is telling us, is that, gasp, Susan has hormones!
Because not only do guys only think about that, so strong are their hormones, but girls do not!
Look, unless Grace loaded Susan up on hormones, wouldn't s/he just be a male equivalent. Noticing that, oh, they are attractive, but no more than s/he would as a female? If you wanna go all bio on it, maybe slightly more physical, slightly less psychological?
And suddenly Susan is all super angry competitive man.
Not that she was ever a competitive person to begin with.
No, fuck you Sarah. When have we ever seen Susan go all competitive on our asses?
Go ahead, show me something, I'm waiting. If anything, she's the type to hate competition, given her hate of everything else!
The backgrounds have vanished completely. Most likely to compensate for any effort Shive has done previously.
Also, silhouettes are horrible on their profiles. They look like some sort of pig like animal.
Oh, wait, no, they look like the animal Dominicus Deeganus.
So, Jason D. Poit is Elliot's favorite actor.
We also saw Ellen lusting over Poit before.
That's a weak connection.
The fact that she would lust over someone she found to be her favorite actor as a male.
I mean, some do, but it's a bit of a point that just makes the world all that more isolated and sterile.
Also, considering how long and hard it is for something like that to happen, it's a good thing Grace is oh so willing to do it for a guy like that, huh?

Grace's antennae continue to creep me out.
I've been getting Dominic Deegan vibes ever since I first saw Susan's male form.
Wouldn't the people at the party who are wondering what male Nanase will look like feel cheated when she walks out as some famous actor she probably has no real resemblance to?

Eh, she ends up just looking like a beefy nanase anyway. There really isn't much to the poit thing.

Why is Grace so friggin terrified of sexuality? That whole "EW EW EW" thing just struck me as so bizarre.

With a Charlie Brown shirt!

Cakman: Because she's supposed to be an innocent adorable bubbly person. And as we all know, sex is the least innocent least adorable least bubbly thing in the world, ever.
Fear the sex. Fear it.

Your words enlighten me, AHR. I shall spread the word, and all shall hear, and all shall follow... Or die! The world shall live! And then die out, because no one will reproduce, I guess.

Oh, God, so much text in these comics'... If I want to read, I'll pick up a book.
