Oh for cryin' out loud.. One of the few times that "the adults were having a conversation" in this 'strip, and the annoying girls rights children butt in? I was hoping that the Dancing girl would be able to verbally defend herself without the writer's worst Shoehorn ex Machina characters (and that includes the God's puppet show). Whatever happens next won't be nearly as scathing as Dancing Girl's unfettered cynicism.

Huh. Made me notice that Xanthe is wearing the same in the first comic I linked...
Soo... nice art evolution.

Meh. Mostly just Sleaze.

Cant really say what would be the best for him. My guess would be, move to another City and make a new Start. Too bad he cant, since Tat wont let him get so easy away and there is still Slick.

@ Mr Zero: They where shown as Kindergardenchildren when tehy first appeared. So it is still somekind stucked for me too at that Image.

Just a Question, but is this Situation simular to the "white knight in shiny Armor" thing? I dont think she is a Damsel in Distress, but somehow this is has such a vib...

Panel one: The tail in the foreground makes me wonder how a devil-person would ride a bike... because it would really suck to get that caught in a wheel. Less "endo", more "atomic drop onto pavement."

i think this is intended more as 'women standing up for other women'.

I got that vibe also. "Don't worry Ma'am. Just say the word and I'll be happy to protect a poor defenseless lady like you"

Can't be having a strong, independent woman stick up for HERSELF. That would mean they had individual agency, and if they had individual agency, they wouldn't need pimps, and sex workers can't stick up for each other, for the same reason, because it would undermine the idea that women can do sex work without being exploited by men. And guys cannot stick up for them, because 'no such things a male allies', writes the man publishing this comic. They must have women outside of their profession stick up for them on their behalf.

I guess that should be. But between "let me help you with your Problem" and the "let me handel your Problem" is a difference.

@Vixine: A Man who would really help, without seeking something to gain? In the Sinfest Univers? What a radical und unrealistic Plot. Wink

Hm, that would be Jesus, Buddah and maybe Crimney. Oh, and the one Angel.

Nah, not Criminy, because that would require him to exist outside of being Fuschia's love interest. Do the others even show up anymore at all anywhere?

He does. But Tat didnt used him in that Way for a long Time.
I think the last Time we saw Jesus was when he saved Slick from Sleaze. Buddha... good Question. Where is Miss Magenta?

Vainglorious actually had a few moments where he seemed like an ally? I think? I'd like to see him in this situation, and what kind of role he'd play.

I'm especially keen on him because he's been pretty nice to Sapphire, Fuschia, and the Sisterhood so far, and I think he represents a sort of reformed "evil," and I actually have no idea what kind of allegory he is to the real world.
