Author commentary


In the original version of this comic, I made Molly quite frail and weepy, like totally innocent and vulnerable.. but Molly really isn’t like that, personality-wise. Maybe when she was a baby, but the Molly we see later has a lot of confidence so I felt it much more fitting for her to come in angry and defiant (though still crying!)

I also like Mike being all “Uhh, you didn’t see that” (being his claws) rather than his dramatic LOOKING TO THE SIDE in the final panel, he’s just plain embarrassed in this revised version, as he should be!

I think Mike is mostly ashamed because if you look closely in panel 17, you can see just how close Mike was to actually clawing Abbey.

Abbey’s very Daisy-empathic, but she’s so focused on Mike, she doesn’t notice. Looking for love, in all the wrong places. Ironic, yes?

Is it just me, or does Mike have a habit of accidentally pointing out peoples’ issues, saying that they’re his, and saying that the person doesn’t understand him.
Maybe not so much a habit as just doing it every now and then.
First Chirpy, now Abbey
