Ah, of course you are right. I see the point the author is making now. The same point made in this earlier strip:



Correct. He's gone into redux mode, considering Monday's strip was variant No. 71 of the Blue thinks Milton is a creep strip.

the "Craving" sequence, which features Doesn't Like Porn Woman


Said sequence also includes one of the few later strips that implies Monique is/was sexually active.

The same is implied for Doesn't Like Porn Woman. So she's had sex but she criticizes Slick for looking at sex. Hm.

The sequence even ended with DLP Woman on kind of good terms with both Monique and Slick -- thinking that someone's funny at least implies that you wouldn't mind being around them now and then -- so if we accepted the idea that Slick and Monique have friends other than the main recurring characters, she could be one of them. We've never seen how 'Nique and Lady Liberty met and surely never will, but if DLP Woman turned up, we'd know how she and 'Nique met, at least.

Breasts might not be super-powers but, per some schools of Hollywood thinking, they're the cheapest special effects, so there's that, anyway.

Even those who aren't familiar with "Craving" might think that Slick's offer sounds kind of...familiar.

"Glam" seems to be Tange's all-purpose word. In the above strip, it apparently means "Thanks."

***

Another Anonymous Sinfest Woman(c) with whom 'Nique might be friends is "Vera Niiice" here (hey, it's a name, anyway).

So that's two women that 'Nique has met by making sexual advances toward them. Hm.

Your memorization of strips is impressive.

I also feel compelled every time I see an old-timey Sinfest strip to go through my Bloom County books to find the refences Tats is using for Slick's movements. I'd have to scan it or take a photo to post it, though. I've wanted to do it several times but it just seems like too much work.

But fuck it, not like I have anything else to do. The only problem is that pose from panel 4 that I think was drawn with Milo Bloom as an artistic reference (possibly from memory), came from the first volume of Bloom County comics I have, and it has fallen into disrepair and may have gone missing. This may be a goose-chase.
