Simply adore the emotional journey that Peggy and her expressions go on within this update; from the hidden in shadows to be nebulous but presumably shy state of the first panel, (that sweet butt peek. Heh heh), to the concluding couplet that shows her emotionally yet jubilant overwhelmed face until her final calming, uncertain joy. :)

Kudos, Giz! You've managed to successfully maintain the precarious balance between fanservice and characterisation, without losing a beat!

Bare Peggy butt AND great expressions. Good day.

Please, please, please don't let him end up with Zii.

So for now, this is peggy's flaw : her inability to invest herself in a serious relationship and to share her feeling with her partner...

Ah, the power of sincerity. Gets 'em every time.

Now, I wouldn’t take this as proof that Peggy is truly smitten with Gary. She might be, or it might just be that she’s had a sad shortage of people saying honestly nice things to her recently. But even she might have difficulty disentangling the two effects.

(And the funny thing is, the other Ma3 character who sometimes emphasises the word “casual” when talking about her sex life In an attempt to muddy the waters is Zii.)

So, it's been five or more days for the characters... and no resolution of Gary and Zii's encounter? Where are Zii and Didi? I see Lita's still around... but no sign of the other house residents.

So much suspense! :D

By the way, points to the writers for creating a “will they, won’t they” situation between two lead characters in a comic where the usual rule is that characters will, energetically, at the first opportunity.

Most of the covering up is to avoid the strip being flagged as hostile by the overly prudish advertisers. Modifications for the book release will be done such as removing Peggy's top and possibly more revealing body angles. I just hope Giz doesn't go too far so as not to distract from the emotional impact that has developed in those last few strips.

Damn, I had really hoped this ship had sunk below the waves, but apparently somebody went and raised the Titanic.

Concurred — it needs to get sold for scrap. Peggy is a nasty pain in the ass (by two meanings).

Wow. Compliments to Giz and Dave for inspiring such venom toward nonexistent people.

It amuses me that Gary didn't think about going forward with Peggy until someone pointed out to him that they "have great sex, get along, can talk about everything..." and that someone is Zii...

So some people really want to see Gary with the girl who's terrible at maintaining long-term relationships, and even staying faithful to her partners??? She who ran from Gary the minute DiDi showed up and shook her ta-tas Zii's way? You people really want to see Zii be the Final Girl???

She has some good insights sometimes, but that doesn't make Zii a good girlfriend. In fact as rogermart said, she insightfully pointed out why Peggy would make the better girlfriend.
