    Does it really matter for a Latina to voice her, especially given Monica’s heritage also is heavily Irish? Unless you always imagined her with a slight accent, I guess. Laura seemed to do a great job otherwise.

      I think it’s a matter of wanting to give more opportunities to voice actors of color, who are often marginalized into bit roles or stereotypical roles, if they’re hired at all. Plus, Monica does speak Spanish fluently, she has spent a lot of time in Mexico & similar communities (and there are no signs she’s ever spoken Gaelic on a regular basis), so that would color her voice and at the very least give her a slight Hispanic whenever she starts tossing in the vocabulary of those regions, or when she’s talking with Tepoz, etc.

        Cree Summer is black and does all sorts of non-black roles. (Penny Gadget, Elmira from tiny toons.) If you restrict voice actors like that, then it could backfire. Would her actress have to be short and part irish too? Short actors also have trouble getting roles. I agree it would be different if you had a scene where Monica had to speak fluent Spanish, but some programs actually switch voice actors for that. (Also for singing.)

        Unless you are on a high budget and can interview hundreds of people, you shouldn’t let other considerations interfere with simply choosing the best person for the job.

  2. She never was much for getting in shape…

    I remember the original comic with the two basketballs bouncing down the stairs, and got a kick out of seeing you use that gag again here. Thanks for making me smile 🙂

    Truly classic reference! The early strips could probably be ‘cinematized’ flash style… an interesting way to stay creative without wrestling with covering with new ground?

    Ladies & Theydies…? (Anyone with “huge…tracts of land!” really…) DecentExposures dot com. I could run without problems in a double-lined (front & back) custom fit 39H, prior to my reduction surgery. (Yes, an ODD-numbered band size! And they go up to an L, too!) The cost in the mid-2000s to mid-2010s was around $80s for this custom fit underwire-free bra, and after a few fitting sessions, I also got the size turned into a swimsuit with real support, and not one of those doily-things that don’t support anything. (Also, they make pants & skirts & dresses with wristwatch-deep pockets, they’re made in the USA, and they LAST!)

    I’m NOT a shill for ’em, just a very, very happy customer since 2006. I no longer need the 39H custom fit bras post-reduction, but I still buy mine from them, still get ’em custom-fit to my proportions, because I believe in supporting a company that, well, supports people like me…even if I don’t need quite so much support anymore.

    (Alas, they don’t use golden orb spider silk, but they do have a wide range of beautiful colors, even some prints, velour, and a special hydrophobic sports material that is AMAZING at evaporating sweat & keeping the “flop” area from being a total swamp in these heatwaves!)

    now he needs to animate the scene with the Lingerie Ninjas, when M went to get her specially designed sports bra.

  7. Khalida al Zarqua

    OMG… I so know her pain. The only difference is I am 6’2″ with boobs like that. SO there is usually more of an audience involved in my “Support structure fails.”

    • robnot

      wife, 6’4″ 220lbs,. 46DD (after reduction) marine. she would break a bra every PT… (audience)
      till she got a ‘elomi energise.’ ,, tho she does replace about once a year…

  8. Chaosmage76

    Hold on. She got one made! There were secret ninjas and everything

  9. Xerxes Aragon

    Lovely fan service.

    Pablo, are you looking for a Latina voice for Monica who lives close to you? If not, I suspect that we fans in New Mexico might be able to find you some candidates here. (I even have a good friend who’s New Mexico Hispanic, fluently bilingual with an appealing accent, and about a 39H herself, but I don’t think she’s looking for work. But there are others.)

    • Thanks. I currently have a Latina VA who I’ve spoken with and sounds excited to tackle the role of Monica. I just haven’t had much time to get another short started. =)

    You know what we haven’t seen in a while?
