Good comic; I just wish God had responded somehow. You just know He'd have something to say about 'Nique praying for shoes.

Hey, shoes can bring happiness to a girl. Why do you think I'm going shoe shopping this weekend?

And I think the comic just is dripping with irony. Although Monique uses that classic (yet very sweet) prayer, yet she doesn't really apply it to herself. (i.e. 'practice what you preach).

And come on, what kid hasn't prayed for some materialistic item? Razz

Comic seems way out of character.

i think it's got her right on. she does try to improve the world and herself, but she likes her pretties.

looking at some of the older strips coming up in the "historic sinfest" thread makes me realize how much she has changed over time - not just in drawing style, but in character development. this strip would have been out of character for the monique of the early years, but our girl is definitely not that person any more.

I love the "'Nique" and heart on the foot of her bed.
