So we're now admitting that Xanthe and the sisters are kids. I'll have to dig up the old thread where that was denied so vigorously.

Or, if preferred, that one tall woman who reported to Xanthe about Slick. I'm not trying to start anything here.

Now that I think about it, I'd guess that all of the Familiar Five are in their teens except for Li'l Sis, who seems to be a pre-teen. I suppose that some of those thirteen trike/big-wheel riders might have been pre-teens too.

And now I'll stop thinking about it. Smile

Sinfest isn't just a comic strip, it's a comic strip that doesn't even pretend to adhere to any concrete notion of the passage of time. The characters' ages simply aren't that significant. If some of them are children yet don't go to school, so what? That's like wondering how Slick, Monique, and others can have houses when they have no jobs or visible means of support. It's a comic strip, that's how. Why does almost no one notice that Squig is a talking pig? It's a comic strip, that's why. Roll with it.

Now, if it were a comic book, that would be something else entirely...

On the other hand...

Abby seems to think that Xanthe is a "tween" (between 10 and 12), so there's that, too.

I have already posted and cited that strip along with other significant evidence in the other thread.

It's alright to come in second.

As someone who is regularly mistaken for if not a "tween" then a young teen when I am now in fact 20, Abby (who for a start, is a notoriously ditzy character) thinking that Xanthe is a tween is not something I would want to base any kind of solid speculation of age on. Also, when I read that strip I figured that she wasn't even doing that, she was just looking though a catalogue that probably contained everything from devil laptops to ouija boards and the closest thing she could find to Xanthe's request in a few seconds was said "panties".

I think there was also an element of "What's the most outrageously wrong thing Abby could suggest, prompted by whatever Devilcorp wants her to push?" in the strip.

Not that anyone's likely to be interested, but for easy references (just in case someone feels like making up names for them), the color schemes of the thirteen trike-riding members of the Sisterhood are:

orange

pink

purple

tan

white

yellow/blonde

two different shades of blue

four different shades of green (one of them very similar to Abby's color)

pink

and one who's just a Caucasian-colored blur

Lil'E was taking obnoxious selfies with hunted animals before it was cool.

Forky the flying pitchfork creature, Loose End Number Ga-Dillion. Some pet owner Fuchsia turned out to be...

oh come come, Ronald, you of all people have the powers to know that wasn't the end.

i see forky as kinda like a cat. unless you keep him shut up inside, he's going to wander off, and maybe get into trouble. but it's hard to deny him his freedom.

I didn't say that the depicted strip was the end of Forky, I said that Forky is a loose end. We have no idea what happened to him(?) after Fuchsia left Stately Devil Manor and, by implication, Hell.

On another note, the ironic thing about one of the strips that you responded with is that Li'l E, in fact, wasn't hunting Hell creatures. He was fishing for Hell creatures but that's not entirely the same thing; unlike fish, who of course die shortly after being caught, unless thrown back, Hell creatures can survive outside of their natural habitat.

He couldn't just tell Fuchsia that, though, just had to have an attitude. Tsk.
