This is one of Those Things that I am inherently divided on. Because the biggest step to normalizing Queer people in media is for it be abnormal to find them odd, and push back from authors to these types of 'helpful critique' that are actually bits of thinly veiled homophobia is a great shift in that direction. On the other hand it's always a dangerus thing when authors attempt to normalize a demographic they are not a member of, I am inherently weary of queer or racial representation by a a white straight cis person, my knee jerk reaction being even good intentions can come to bad ends and bad intentions being more common then good.

It's one of those things you have to judge on a case-by-case basis, and I'm inclined to not judge Jeph to harshly for all this: Claire has been openly trans for more then a thousand strips, and there has always been the casual fact of Dora's bisexuality, Tia being a lesbian and so on. Jeph has frankly always been pretty good about queer people in his comics, and I don't think more is a bad thing.

Unrelated, but it's "wary," not "weary." I've been seeing this misuse a lot over the past six months or so, all over the internet, and I don't know why it's gotten so bad.

Anyway, if Jeph is that disinterested in the cast he already has, then he'd be better off starting an entirely new comic than introducing a revolving door of new characters for whom he promptly ignores the last characters he introduced and immediately gave a month-to-months-long arc.

That's what was done with Alice Grove, which was cut short, well, probably because he grew tired of it.

Just a hunch.. but.. I suspect Jeph is intending for us to dislike this woman.

Wait a minute. Two pages ago. Did Faye just describe her dream guy as Steve? I mean the conclusion we're supposed to draw is Bubbles, sure, but I mean. Like that third panel, if you cut it out of its current context most people would think Steve, wouldn't they?
So this is how Liberty dies. With thunderous applause.

We weren't crying wolf we're simply surrounded by wolves.

I'm not sure about where Steve belongs on the Sliding Scale of Bro-iness, though.

Steve hasn't really done anything to earn ire.

[up][up] I think they may have been talking about Hanner's mom.
So I'll make a resolution
