Damn it. Now he's got me rooting for them to get together even though it'd be horrible for the strip.

WOW

Nique really looks sultry in panel 3

No wonder Slick's heart is melting away when it comes eye to eye

I've done things very similar to what Slick did there in my life.

Slick is the Peter Parker of the comic strip world, he can't seem to get a break.

i like how the view switches from 'niques right side to her left. and i'm a personal fan of how she looks in the second panel.

poor slick has no idea how to get it right. three and a half out of 10 is bad enough... but out of twenty? she was unreasonably harsh.

she wanted him to say it was about her - if he'd said that, i bet it would have been 3-1/2 out of 5 (especially if she was reacting to the first version of yesterday's strip).

i'm not sure if she really loves him for himself, or if she is more into the idea of being the object of someone's passion....maybe that's why slick keeps backing off, he's afraid she doesn't really want _him_, and he doesn't want to be hurt.

and she may not be letting herself really consider him, because he usually has that cool pimp thing going on, and she doesn't want to make a fool of herself - so both of them are so busy trying not to be hurt they keep hurting themselves.

...yes, i would say the characters have grown just a tad over the years.

I think you hit the nail on the head right there.

And it is startling looking back at the earlier comics, not just the steamboat willy-esqe style but also how much the characters have grown since the way back.

I think the scale was more flexible than that. She wanted Slick to be slick, and if he was, her judgement may have ended up a sultry, breathy, come-hither "out of 3 1/2."

It's pretty clear that 'Nique likes him, but I don't know if she likes him likes him.

Seriously. They are friends. Everyone seems to think that the two are either destined to hook up or star-crossed, and while I understand that such an idea is natural whenever there's any sexual tension between the two main characters of any work, we don't really have a strong enough impression of 'Nique's attitudes to say. Sometimes love really is unrequited.

Anyone else notice that in the third panel, from the angle Slick's glasses look like it's a heart/heart-shaped?

Oh.
And why the hell does Tat choose this past month, of all months, to have the pair try and establish a relationship?

It's like he's planning these "coincidences" -.-
