That Carson Kid

<<First Latest>>
View Transcript Tiny David: Hey Steve, who's that with Grace? I've never seen her before.
Steve The Penguin: Her? The chick in the jersey?

Tiny David [off-panel]: Yeah. Her.
Steve The Penguin: I thought you'd never ask.

Steve The Penguin [off-panel]: That, Tiny David, is Melissa Carson. She's on the Varsity Women's Basketball team with Grace.

Steve The Penguin: And she's a total babe. She could probably kick my ass multiple different ways but I don't give a crap.

Tiny David: But don't you normally have a massive inferiority complex about such things?
Steve The Penguin: Tiny David, Tiny David, Tiny David. You obviously don't understand how love works.

Grace: Hey... I think Steve's lusting over you again, Lissa. Should I tell him...
Lissa: Let's leave him in suspense. It's more fun that way.

Author Notes

2/5/2022, 12:11 PM Ok I got a couple things to say about this strip:

1. Enter Lissa Carson, my personal favorite member of the strip's main cast, and effectively the deuteragonist of what should ideally be an ensemble (wherein I guess David is the protagonist). Believe it or not, she's actually appeared in more strips than David himself (all of like, one) honestly because she's just... inordinately fun to write.

2. Welcome to the strip's first genuine serialized story arc. It's a bit shorter than the others (13 strips vs 17-19), but that's due in part to the fact that this was really more of an experiment to see if I could actually carry out a serialized arc. Clearly it worked, because I now do two a year.
