Anna Log actually had a good point just after this issue was shot (actually, it was drawn, but I know you know what I mean): Wouldn't it hurt me if I kicked people's shins in flip-flops???
Normally, it would hurt me a lot to do that, but who said I was gonna wear flip-flops for the kicking stage. I just wore them here to look completely ridiculous in early February in the Northern Hemisphere…I mean, I almost never wear skirts!
Speaking of skirts, did you know that the words skirt and shirt are related to each other? Apparently one was the Old English word for a shirt and one was the Old Norse word for a shirt or something…I don't know exactly. It was just something Brian heard on The History of English Podcast several years ago, and I have since been imbued with that knowledge thanks to my being a fictional creation of Brian's and having special meta-powers that allow me to pretty-much know whatever what my author knows (something most fictional characters can't do). Anyway, even though I didn't wear a shirt in this comic, I did wear a skirt, so at least I'm covered in one ancient Germanic language or the other! (Of course, there are probably some pervs among you who think I should have had even less covered. You probably also eat pizza with feta cheese on it, since that's what pervs do. In both of those cases, though, all of that is on you. I'm too much of a badass to worry about you. I'll just kick you in the shins and move on!)
Okay, that's all I've got for you this week. If you want some composition advice, try not to have the edge of some object in the image get too close to the edge of the image itself. It can make things a little wonky and looks unprofessional. Also, I hope you enjoyed this quasi-Valentine's Day Special. I know the day's not till Monday of next week, but my comics come out on Wednesdays, and nobody cares about a holiday special two days after the holiday. (Go figure.) So, next week, look forward to something that isn't family friendly but isn't really family unfriendly either. It's just better than most things, because I am the star! If you disagree with that claim, then I guess you just don't have good taste. I don't have to explain myself, I'm an expert in art and have spent eons refining my palate to know the difference between objectively good and bad art. I am devoid of bias, and I know which way to spell "palate/palette/pallet" when talking about taste, so I must be super smart!
