Thursday, March 24

"An'"s: Three.

Gratuitous "quotes": Two.

Crimeny, April, what did you want her to say---that you're a goddess?

So is this the end of her association with Evil Becky? Probably not, unless April is willing to break up the band.

Meanwhile, look at Becky's hair. In panel 1, there are tendrils going in all different directions, like Medusa (who was also evil). But in panel 4, it looks matted down, no doubt to illustrate how sad and bereft she's going to be now that Saint April has forsaken her. That's right, April! Clench that fist! Squint your eyes more! The path of the righteous is beset on all sides!

ETA: Schmoosie's post prompted me to check the color version of the strip. Not only are those some fugly jeans April's wearing, but in the last panel, she has two locks of hair sticking up like devil horns! Becky's got her so mad she's turning to the dark side?
