'Nique is seriously making me want to revisit my androgynous phase.

But she's dressed pretty much how she always was. She's not rockin' the androgynique look that much. Just the hair, I guess, and even that's really not that much shorter than it was historically.

Still, I give the comic props for bringing back the classic feminist dynamic of the strip, which was more opposed to Seymour's puritanical/social-conservative views than anything.

I give it 6 walruses out of 8.

nice to see seymour back in prime form and a nique strip is always good, we barely get to see her now.

Yes, I think I like this more than the tricycle people (I can't remember their name. I need to go eat now!!), about whom my jury is still out.

...

... the Sisterhood!! That's it. Okay, now I can go eat.

Very funny strip. Smile

By the way, am I the only one who imagines:

"FUCK THE POLICE!
This message has been brought to you by your local police department. Please, fuck the police."

Brilliant!

Seriously though, what is with the hatred of police officers?

You think for a group of people whose job is to protect you from thieves, muggers, rapists, and murders... they'd get a bit more love and a bit less ahte.

But for some reason, everyone is always with the "hey! fuck you police! HOW DARE YOU RISK YOUR LIFE TO MAKE MY NEIGHBORHOOD SAFER!!!!" ...

I don't understand it. Is it the weed thing (Cause I blame Congress for that, not the police)? Is it the fact they won't let you drink and drive? Is it their mustaches?

I suspect a lot of peoples' hatred for the police stems from only ever having exposure to them for negative reasons (even small stuff, speeding tickets, parking tickets, if they were in a car accident, if they had something stolen).

For me, personally, the only police I've met have either been professional and indifferent or gigantic bullying assbags. Not particularly endearing.

Perceptions of Big Brother watching and government interference with daily lives, police officers intruding on "harmless fun," general disrespect for rules and authority figures, etc.

Well, I think you kind of have it already. Police uphold the law, whether the law is just, or unjust, and the law is always unjust.

And I agree with the awesome of Chast's statement.

Back-and-forth shitposting on what is the "minimum required level of girliness"

So, if Seymour can just put on a hat and declare himself to be the police, why don't any of the other characters ever do that to him?

He's enough of a buttmonkey as he is now... He doesn't need to have a taste of his own medicine.

I want this strip framed and on my wall. Ideally, near my closet. I've been following the comic for a long-ass time and I've really got to say that I absolutely love where it's gone lately and I respect and admire Tatsuya so much for how he's changed and how public he's being about it. Keep strong, brother-man.
