Now that would be disconcerting.
So when exactly did she get poited?
Somehow I find the Golem Girls cute and heartbreaking at the same time!
I’ve always felt particularly that way about Bud.
Bud seems to be learning to be “human” again and enjoying herself.
Now Jin is the one who most desperately needs help.
And, cranky as she is, i think Monica may be the best choice to help – because, if nothing else, she’s about the most “human” of the non-supernatural cast…
And loyalty works both ways. God knows that if there is any justice in the world, Jin is owed all the help she needs.
I love that reaction “Aaaand, now I’m standing.” Got a smile out of me.
I have has a few mornings myself where I supplied my own commentary.
I thought the “And now I’m standing” was because of a sudden and unexpected poit orchestrated by our dear Jin…?
Yes, I think she’s in Jin’s living room. That would be a strange way to get going in the morning, I suppose. 🙂
Come to think, the wall hangings behind her in Panel Two do look as if Jin pulled a stealth poit on Monica – they definitely look like something Jin, with her “oriental” look and persona, rather than Monica, would have.
And Jin was (as i said) the one who was able to snag Bud with a stealth poit that Bud didn’t even notice – and she was wide awake at the time, too.
I thought that was obvious Jin poited M. Why else would Jin be apologizing, or Monica’s thought derail in mid-sentence? I was just laughing over Monica’s reaction to it (shows she’s getting used to the GGG just tossing her around anymore).
I figured that Jin came over to Monica’s place without letting her know in advance; she’d done it before.
It’s Jin’s place. 🙂
I remember Bud yelling at Jin for busting into her living room – until Jin pointed out that Bud was now in her living room…
Mmmmm . Croissant .
I hope Monica is awake enough to listen and not give Jin her usual kneejerk crap — with Jin asking for help so seriously, this cannot be good.
Boy – taken without context, Jin’s last line would be almost as much a conversation-stopper as what one of my friends once reported that said *just* as there was a lull in conversation at a party:
” I have to go home and wash my weasel.”
(She kept ferrets.)
Cheddar Croissants? The demon realm has a cooking school?!
As I understand it, Mayahuel was observing the human world from the demon realm, but couldn’t leave the demon realm.
Oh wow! Just what Monica needs, More food. I hope she has a good listening ear.
“Those poor people down at the water treatment plant” Snerrk!
Cheddar Croissant. Well, we were all wrong, then.
makes me feel better about my breakfast of Cheetos and Diet Dr Pepper XD
I was kind of thinking corn and pumpkin quickbread, but you use what you can get. Can you get Turkey eggs in the markets in MSP?
I just noticed – no wonder she didn’t get much sleep – all thse pairs of staring eyes on her wallpaper. You know, if you stare at the stars long enough, they start to stare back….
DAMMIT! That wallpaper wasn’t creepy until you pointed that out to meeeeee…. D: Can’t… stop… staring…
Geez, you’re right – creepy eye wallpaper. That would have to go.
I had that kind of pattern on my curtain as a kid…it gets reeeeealy creepy when the moon makes those eyes glow…
Me? I’m just surprise that Monica doesn’t have a sore back *all* the time! ;x
Zes, your avatar fits your comment so perfectly 😀
Is it just me, or do Monica’s boobs look even bigger than normal? “A moment on the lips, a lifetime on the…chest”?
She’s not wearing a bra, that tends to happen when busty gals aren’t wearing one. Their boobs can look bigger and more pendulous.
… and more painful! At least in her back and shoulders. That second panel reminds me of my posture (sans boobage) the last time I threw my back out.
Jin bribing Monica with a cheddar croissant and saying “I need your help” … something wicked this way comes …
I just want to say I love this comic- I’ve been reading it since the very beginning. But I feel I’m starting to be worn down by Monica’s ghastly figure. It’s one thing to have a big chest, but its another to have such a minimal waist- and the proportions are worse than Barbie. Standing alone would indefinitely have her spine snap in half. I know a cartoon is a cartoon, but this exaggerated female shape is a style loaded with such heavy controversy and connotations. I don’t know. It’s just starting to irk me. Oh and by the way,for the title, did you mean ” I need your help?”
I know what you’re trying to say, but tell that to the real women of the world that are honestly shaped like that, through no fault of their own, just nature, and they have to deal with being written of as sluts, bimbos or constantly being accused of having implants. My goal is not the hyper sexualization of Monica, But that we shouldn’t be judged on our outward appearances.
Awaiting the day that no people are judged on their external physical appearance (especially if it is beyond their control). For large breasts equals sex object is just as inaccurate and negative a stereotype as any based on race, nationality, disability, and the like.
Thank you for replying, Now that I see what you are doing, I really appreciate that. I guess my paranoia came from all the comics I’ve read where certain gender stereotypes are played to the extreme. I was at a moment of weakness- I apologize. Still loving the comic as always!
Showing us the problems that go with a large bust goes a long way toward achieving that goal. Braless pirouettes, painful jogging bounce, etc., takes the superficial sexy right out of the picture and lets us see the smart, knowledgeable, self-confident person behind the huge rack.
And then, seeing the smart, knowledgeable, self-confident person behind the huge rack brings the sexy right back, but it’s no longer superficial. Well done, sir. Well done indeed.
Trust me, in each of the three panels, Monica looks like many other busty young women I’ve met. Having come from the Midwest farm country (Michigan & Wisconsin), lemme tellya that Pablo’s assessment of “… when busty gals aren’t wearing one [a bra] … Their boobs can look bigger and more pendulous” is spot on, that’s just the way that nature made them, and it does not make them any less attractive, especially when you’ve taken the time to get to know the person behind the boobage.
Some people naturally want to take other people down to make themselves feel better. ‘Tis sad, but it’s also the way of the internets.
My shape causes controversy? Cool.
Wow, I had that morning yesterday! Someone’s reading my mind! ACK!
It couldn’t be a more disconcerting morning if Jin had said, “The pastry will explain everything.”
(do the la la la la…)
My query of what Jin had for breakfast yesterday was answered! Woohoo!
I’m assuming Jin grabbed Monica first chance she got with May out of the way for a while — so it’s not something she wants to run past her Mom for some reason. Even more interesting.
Every time Jin pulls one of these stunts where she seems to be channeling a prior existence (and most notably in the recent interaction with Tina), the same sentence comes into my head:
“Listen: Billy Pilgrim has come unstuck in time.”
Dave Davenport has become unstuck in time?
Cheddar croissant, you say? Yeah, I’ll listen to anything for one of those.
