I bet she like Meccano sets better than Legos when she was a child.

"Only" bomf things! So in Tange's mind, engineering (hard-won intellectual skill) trumps magic (native knack or talent), if "magic" is the correct way to describe what a "bomf" is. I like it.

Well, bomfing isn't anywhere near as versatile an ability as engineering is.

Hard to say. Have we seen the full extent of what a talented "bomf"-er can do yet?

well... bomfing has two functions... just regular fire... burns like regular fire, but it comes from the hands of a devil person... fuchsia can make projectiles out of the fire setting of bomf, and blue can use it as flamethrower, while i recall tange just straight-up making explosions with it. and the secondary function of bomfing - which is actually the more common usage - is transformation, in which the bomfer can bring things to life - be it a deceased animal, or an inanimate object - by transforming it into a devil thing, or by turning a person into a devil person. and usually, those who can bomf can also bkow. d-man, blue and fuchsia can all make full-fledged openings to hell, but tange can only make little holes.

and then theres bvomf - which ordinary unemployed devil girls can apparently preform - but we don't know the full extents of how it functions and how different devil girls utilize it. the most we know about it is "it has something to do with the mirror world, and it created sleaze"

Gah I love this comic - characers meeting each other yeah~

I guess bomf isn't so special for Tange considering she already knows how it works.

In the absence of any evidence to the contrary I'm going to assume Lil'E is having an adorkable conversation with PX in the back. *prays to Tat it is shown tomorrow*

I love this - Tange and Tess are great. And yeah, I'd love to see Li'l E and Pxsoomethingsomething awkwardly failing to converse in the back.

One other point - the text at the top right, "sworn to protect a world that fears and hates him". A nod towards all the feminist-storyline-haters, with a hint that it won't be ending any time soon?

I know it doesn't matter but I still cringe a bit whenever somebody puts an "s" on the end of LEGO.

Or Lil'E is in the back and being dragged along on the feminist fun ride? I like your explanation better though.

nnrrgh I do not care it is not important


Also, it's mildly amusing that Tess just brushes off the "mutant super power" line.

Induglent feminist power-fantasies don't serve or protect anyone, even other feminists. You can't beat up the Patriarchy or hack its mainframe. A decent level of anti-establishment power fantasy genre, of which feminist power fantasy is a sub-category, would be something like Transmetropolitan. While the formats aren't really adequately comparable (daily comic strip vs full-sized comic book series) I'm talking more in terms of tonality specifically rather than general content. This kind of power fantasy is about as mature as a kid playing with his action figures, labelling the villains as representing people or concepts he hates, and then having a flawless, or near-flawless, band of specialized heroes (Leader, Hacker, Techie, Combat Specialist, ect.) beat them up and thwart their plans. Except it is in comic strip format on the internet drawn by a man in his forties who should probably know better. The problem a lot of people have with the feminist storyline is that it is heavy-handed and indulgent, not that they miss a cartoon lady shaking her cartoon booty or hate feminism. Automatically assuming the worst motivations and intentions of anyone who disagrees with an opinion you hold is a terrible character-stunting personality trait. I often fear that is what Tats defaults to when reading any critisicsm of where the plot is going, or often just stagnating.

Seriously, this is Zen Pencils level of bad. If you can read Zen Pencils and not see the problem, then chances are you are part of the problem.
