@TwoWayStar - Same here.

This new version of Chloe started out well/familiar. I was fine with the fact that she was older and acted more like a succubus on occasion; but the way it seems like she grew dumber with age annoys me (well, that and largely being turned into a background character in her own comic series; a misunderstood damsel in distress that needs to be rescued by 'her man' or she'll die).
Please, don't come to me expecting me to fix your problems.

Just out of curiosity I checked out the archive. Chloe section runs to 27 pages. Teddy has got 35; Abby/Abigail has got 22 and Pandora has got 17. So the title character has appeared in roughly half of the strips and had almost 80 fewer appearances than Teddy and only fifty more than Abby.

I just really loved Chloe from EC. :(
My favorite character was Maria. Not just because she was hot but had some genuinely funny moments.

Tiff was the best character though.

Ace was my favourite. Like Gary from MA3 he was a nice guy who was much put upon but unlike Gary he had enough spine and snark to occasionally try and stand up for himself - or at least comment amusingly when he was being railroaded into something.

I didn't even mind the gender flip because it was well written, funny and didn't go on for ever.

Dear god no. The last thing this comic needs right now is a child molesting doll.

Loving this page and the art in the first and last panel. I'm curious to know if these are two distinct personalities ,his human half and the parasitic succubus blood, or are they simply superficial, visual representations of her internal struggle to rationalize the pro's and con's of inject herself with the angel blood similarly to the Kiley's emotions in the move Inside Out. I'm hoping it's the former, because I'd hate to think old Teddy's personality has been permanently changed due to by factors outside his control.

My favorite main character for EC was Brook because she had biggest character arc in the series. My least favorite was Dio, because he was an elitist and didn't have much of a character outside of that characteristic. That's a problem with a lot of characters in EC due to the rather short run of the series. If it had gone on longer he may have been a great character like Shintaro Mendou for Urusei Yatsura.

I don't like where this is going. This feels like a "I'm going to talk myself into taking this injection even if I'll regret it" moment.
And that's what I expect to happen... at the end of the next strip, so we cannot see the result.

Then the next step will show Abby reacting to whatever happened.

And the one after that will show Naomi reacting to Abby reacting.

And finally, we'll be let in on the secret... in two weeks. Unless of course, we get a strip of Pandy reacting to Naomi and Prudy reacting... just as Chloe comes back to ask about "Candy Rocks."

I hope she stay female. Also, that guy, the little girl's brother, he really isn't in any place to be giving lectures with regards to their lifestyle choices, what with the whole museum raiding, demonic pact making thing he had going.

That lingerie on Teddi, the one with the hands and arrows? W-O-W!
The hands and arrows were a last minute addition to the design.

And I don't know if I'm the only one who thought Teddi screwed Rick Sanchez until I noticed a mustache and beard. Regardless. She certainly earned that 4.0 ;)
I only just recently, within the past week or so, watched my first episode of Rick and Morty. I guess it made a subconscious impression on me.

My favorites in EC/MC are Faith/Tiff/Layla, and I would pay for a comic where Faith finally is dating Tiff only to find out Layla is Tiff's "best sworn frienemy"
That's what i do... i drink and i know things...
