How did his sleep mask turn into sunglasses? Did he try to deal with it?

Or is it a sign, his evil always-sunglasses-part got stronger?

Ooomph... This strip.. It left me with nothing but sadness and pain. Sad Well, ok.. tinged with anger at devil Slick.

Just ouch. Methinks Slick might have a bit of a character building moment after this.

Interesting comments being made in this strip, Tat, about the relationship between advocates of feminism and the audience they're trying to reach. Slick's dark "Id" side reacts against Nique's totalitarian (for lack of a better word) approach and rebels with further perpetuation of misogyny.

Hopefully once the wounds start to scab a bit, we'll see a reconciliation between the two, with more open, genuine, two-way communication. Would love to see that as a metaphor for healing media-created rift between women and men. <3

They'll think about it on the drive home, and then angrily cut someone off. That person will then also be pissed. I'm pretty sure all that negative feeling ends up in the Middle East or something."

I feel it should be noted that there is a chance that the devil girl Slick chose might be into getting bomf'd.

Pre-bomf face doesn't exactly scream excited anticipation. Nor do the after effects look in any way appreciated, just endured.

There's a lot of interesting happening here... Actually I think that a lot of things went way over my head.

...I understand the fact that Kcils needed to see someone in a miserable state to compensate for Slick's/his current miserableness. Back to "Porn degrades" right there.

I think that I understand using your heart as currency as well. By having the need to view the degradation or suffering of others, you are effectively heartless and sacrifice humanity. At least that's how I see it.

Why was the heart in a safe, though? You'd use that metaphor for people that are emotionally shut in. Slick isn't IN THE LEAST. No, not gonna question the money. I can imagine a story behind that, but the heart?

Also, I wonder how it's like from Slick's perspective. He wakes up to find in his laptop some really fucking sick porn? Not knowing what's going on that's exactly when you run all of your antivirii.

Also fourth panel: Never fun.

When the cupid went hunting Slick threw it in a safe to keep it.. safe.

Also, slick just turned into a vampire (No reflection).

Yeah, I think it's along those lines of needing to see that feeling on someone else to feel better about yourself. Or it could be the concept of trying to get rid of it by casting it onto someone else so you now feel better. It's probably along the lines of why studies will show the more depressed people intake more things like porn.

And yes, personally I think it hurts the heart/soul/core of your being (however you want to put it) to spread your misery around and take advantage of people.


Of course, some of this could be less metaphor and more story based, but either way, I'm effectively riveted by this strip! Very powerful and awesome!

someone tell me if i've got this straight. slick feels bad about himself because nique told him off. this doesn't sit right with devil slick/slick's devil side. devil slick then works to diminish slicks self loathing by debasing a devil girl(resorting to porn), putting himself in a position of power and inflating his ego in the process. slick then awakes mildly unsure of the preceding events. If thatís right, is tat saying this is a way many men exploit porn or is this just something slick did as an "in the moment" sort of thing?
This being: a man debasing women through porn to feel better about himself

Last, panel, look in the mirror, slick never left his bed.
