Hannah: Dude, your mom is *so cool*.
Lissa: *My* mom?
Pssht, *your* mom is the cool one.

Now she's just a high school gym teacher!
*Your* mom is still is the longest running woman of color to ever grace the top of the fantasy best seller lists!

Author Notes

2/21/2022, 1:04 PM Enter Lauren Carson, Lissa's birth mom. Lissa's parents are probably the most well-developed of any of my side characters, primarily because they're a pair of disaster lesbians in their early-to-mid 40's and they have ridiculously badass backstories. Lauren holds black belts of various degrees in various forms of martial arts, around the mid-to-late 90's she was a UFC contender and she participated in a couple of WWE storylines, but ultimately hung up her skin-tight leotard to take on the biggest challenge of them all: single motherhood. If she could throw men weighing upwards of 250 pounds across a ring, she sure as hell could raise a child.

Also this is the first strip where I start to regularly curl the tip of Lissa's "ponytail" downwards, stepping towards the cartoonishly exaggerated hair crescent we all know and love.
