1508 In Front Of My Back.
Oh, you come from a family of goddesses? That won’t be awkward at Xmas.
Just in case it isn’t clear enough from left to right: Carol, Cheri (Their mom), Robin, and Dusty. I considered making Dusty blonde at one point, but landed on redhead after all. When it came down to it having a third color felt wrong for whatever reason. I actually designed Robin in the first year of the comic. There are images of her floating around in a style I was experimenting with at the time. I went back to them for this image, even though it’s pretty small. Not that I needed to. Almost no one would remember this since it goes back to the Drunk Duck days. The stuff with Carol and her sisters, Robin in particular, was an idea that I wanted to use much earlier, but didn’t think I could make it work at the time. Carol sort of got left out when it comes to her motivations compared to the rest of the cast. What she wants in life isn’t as clear because she’s very focused on the now. The rest of the cast, in one way or another, are dreamers. They’re looking ahead to a time when they’ll become what they’re destined to be, but Carol does what Yoda tried to teach Luke. She keeps her mind on where she is and what she’s doing. The fact that she’s opening up to Thomas like this is a clear indication of how much she trusts him, because nostalgia isn’t such a core part of her makeup. I doubt you could pull that out of the pages of the comic, I just happen to know it because these are my actors, strutting and fretting their hour on the stage. Edward and Carol bonded partly because he’s very similar to her. He’s now oriented. Concerned with doing his job well. In many ways Carol should have been the one to train Ed because they would have clicked philosophically. Eventually they did, which led to his promotion to part time customer service. If Reggie wasn’t suck a dick, and Carol didn’t have such a bitchy attitude at work, he could have done the same thing. Unfortunately Carol is kind of a girl Reggie. They don’t get along because they are so alike. Thomas gets along wit them both, to the point of loving Carol even, because he can look past their exterior. In fact you can see the difference in how they both interact with him. As I’ve always said, Thomas actually likes Reggie and values him in a way that goes deeper than just the way he describes him as a useful tool. You’ll notice that Reggie, Carol, and Ed have several traits in common and have had hard times coming to terms with one another. And, if you’re old enough to remember the old character designs, Carol and Reggie share numbers, and Ed’s is evenly divisible by theirs. Just a little tidbit for the hardcore readers. XD
Boobs are usually way too round to stab anyone… puffy nipples on the other hand…
At best they might function as a bludgeon…
That sounds uncomfortable for the posessor of the boobs.
Isn’t there a horror movie/porno based on that idea?
I’m too tired to remember right now.
I didn’t find a chest-related horror film, but, here are these two:
1) Deadly Weapons [ a 1974, American film]. Rumors are- that the woman-hero is an amply endowed woman, who kills off some mob bad-guys, by smothering them with her boobs,
2) Double Agent 73, [a 1974 American film]. Deadly Weapons was the sequel to this film. Unknown if she does any b smothering in D.A. 73. Fans on www. imdb . com give “Double Agent 73” 3.8 stars out of 10. DW gets 3.3 stars out of ten.
FWIW, I haven’t seen either of these films.
What is it about skull hairpins?
The original design didn’t read well at that size.
Is mom turning Robin’s head towards the camera with her hand?
Looks like she’s doing a peace sign with both hands, to me.
Oh, yeah — Dusty is busty. She also shares Nina’s sleepy eyes. Cheri reminds me a little of a woman I went out with ten or fifteen years ago. Easy enough on on the eyes, but a little harder on the mind. I’d like to see Cheri meet Thomas’ mother. That would be… enlightening.
Oh Jesus, that would be an interesting interaction!
Is it just me or does Robin look like Reggie?
“If Reggie wasn’t suck a dick” lil’ slip there? :p
Awww… You beat me to it…
Damnit, Jackie. I think I love Carol. I´ve just realized now… She´s so expresive and genuine in this page. Thomas has true gold, there… *Feel those pangs of jealousy,yes*
I think Jackie is being inspired by Oscar Wilde.
Oscar Wilde said something like:
“Good friends stab you in the front”.
Minus the boobs she looks just like her mom
I realize it means I’m shallow, but I’d find it difficult to look past Carol’s exterior. Or to stop looking at it.
As long as you remember there’s a person inside the façade there’s nothing wrong with appreciating beauty.
Carol is the kind of woman I would have an intense friendship with, seeing as I’m a lot like Jo. She’s so intense about the now, she’d be my anchor to it (as I’m a dreamer that never leaves my dreamland lol).
It’s not that often you meet a [naturally] busty woman who wishes they were even bigger.
Alright, I thought my favorite was going to stay Nina.
Now we have a female Reggie named Robin and a shorter, bustier, redheaded Nina named Dusty.
I was not prepared for Dusty. I shall be looking forward to her more.
Dusty, you need a hot beef injection. But I’ll need to find time in my very busy schedule to squeeze myself in…
