<Editor's note: please excuse the delayed post this week - my computer decided to die, and it's in the shop to be 'repaired'. So until they manage to get my files safely backed up, I'm operating on a 'scan-in-the-original-artwork-and-put-that-up-for-now' basis....>
Aww, they've only been hanging out for a little while, and Jenny's already got a embarassing, cutesie nickname for her beau! Isn't that sweet? But speaking of names, it has just occurred to me that this is the first time in the entire story thus far that anyone has actually referred to Jenny by her name! Not even Candice said it during the entire four comics they were together at the beginning of the tale! Geez! She's been walking around all this time as 'unnamed female Type-three Cosmosian', and nobody seems to have noticed.... That's rough. But thankfully, Gene has now rectified the mistake, and they can go out and have fun times! Yay! Another interesting thing about this particular strip is the rather interesting role reversal we in the ranks of the A-team cast: usually, Gene is the one getting up to hair-tearingly absurd hi-jinks and his friends are the ones going UUGHH WHYYYYYY - but here, Artie and Macy (paragons of common sense, normally) are lurking in the undergrowth like weirdos, and Gene (Gene!!!) is rolling his eyes and casting exasperated looks in their direction, like he's the responsible one for a change. The fact that even Jenny finds them rather off-putting is evidence that the usual character dynamics don't apply.... perhaps because Gene realises that he needs to play things a bit more mature (!!!) to maintain the course-heading on his relationship? Although, perhaps you can't entirely blame Artie and Macy for de-volving - they're still clearly having a hard time comprehending that their pal is even capable of netting an actual girlfriend, without there being some elaborate prank or grand conspiracy behind it; and are working through their denial the only way they know how: slack-jawed, googly-eyed voyeurism. Oh, well....
