Wow, what a change!
Looking forward to tomorrow's comic; this is such a cliffhanger! Cool

Ugh.
Fun fact: During the 1968 Miss America pageant, feminist protesters dumped girdles, cosmetics, high-heeled shoes and bras into a "freedom trash can." However, no bras (nor anything else) were actually set on fire; the phrase comes from Lindsy Van Gelder, then a reporter for the New York Post. In an article, she had taken the protests to hypothetical heights by imagining the feminists were burning their bras, just as young men were burning their draft cards. A Post editor used the phrase "bra-burner" in a headline, and it stuck - even though no such burning had, in fact, happened. The Snopes article I'm referencing doesn't mention it, but I've read elsewhere that the feminists were about to set the "freedom trash can" on fire but were thwarted by the police. This was taking place on a wooden boardwalk, and the cops were concerned about a fire hazard.

The more you know!

Poor 'Nique... In need of a radical change - and getting a new haircut instead. The Patriarchy got her much worse than she realises.

Eeeeyup.

I'm a big fan of Androgyny, too.

Not inherently surprising, for she has always had an androgynous fetish. It is an improvement in her look, definitely. The question is whether she'll acquire a personality, or continue being a vapid pseudo-hippy with (now) extra androgyny.

So glad the renewal of this comic is continuing

I gasped in so much air. I always admired 'Nique's hair, now THIS. I hate feminists now.

Even without the haircut she looks more "realistically" drawn in this strip, almost as if she's a visitor from another strip.

I miss Fun 'Nique. But so it goes. Even if she doesn't perk up soon, there are always the earlier strips.

The idea that changing your hairstyle would change you is the exact opposite of what feminism is about. I think that this was just an excuse for Tatsuya to revamp 'Nique's appearance... There is no indicator whether she is actually going to turn into a proper feminist for now.

And it's not like this is a new fashion style for her anyway, this was pretty similar.

Always remember, hair grows back.

I'm not clear on how she wasn't "a proper feminist" before, but that's okay, I'm not trying to start anything.

I think Tat is deliberately pacing 'Nique's storyline (whatever it is) very

very

slowly

to simulate the pacing of an average motion picture. OSLT. Wink Almost nothing happens in this strip, and almost nothing happened in the "It Burns" strip. In contrast, look how much Pebbles and Li'l E have gotten accomplished in the interim.

So, the whole "cut her foot on the Jesus tree" thing was, what, a Mobius strip of a plot point, it came out of nowhere and went nowhere? At least she's changed shirts.

"Don't sit under the Jesus tree with anyone but me..."

For no particular reason except that it was easy and didn't take long, here's a look back at 'Nique through the years:
