Okay so Dillon was jealous of Zii and Jerzy's tryst, but he got over it quickly enough.

It's always a refreshing twist when Dillon is mature and reasonable. Even if it is in the middle of an immature tantrum-brawl.


And Angel totally has a point in panel 2 there, even if she's taking a totally cheap shot in panel 3.

It's really concerning that Angel uses what looks like an ace bandage to bind their chest and not a proper binder, using ace bandages leads to some really severe health problems sometimes :( It's really disappointing every time I see media that depicts it and doesnt point out its harmfulness, it should be noted that it's extremely dangerous

And so it goes...

Poor Dillon, surfaced for a gasp of rationality before being forced back into the frackas... :ymdevil:

Sometimes it takes a couple of updates for everything to be said & explained. These characters are far from perfect.

It's he at the moment, but yeah. Angel is not wrong in saying Dillon screwed things up with Jerzy himself.

It would appear that these three are hell-bent on confirming Ruby's belief that relationships are more trouble than they're worth. One wonders if she'll step in to talk them down once they've slowed down enough to remove the danger of a stray backswing to the face, or whether she'll just sit down for a nice chat with Ramona. And it's nice to see someone telling Dillon that he's a sad little drama queen.

Well, it looks like he only just found out about it - and Zii made a perfectly good point about why it shouldn't be an issue. Dillon has his faults, but jealousy over someone's distant past history isn't one of them.

"Whore" isn't a term of abuse that many characters sling around in these comic. Aside from being especially nasty and a bit misogynistic, well, very few of them could use it of each other without looking amazingly hypocritical.

(I do wonder if Ruby might throw it at Amber, if she got really, really angry. She is one of the few characters here who can claim to take sexual continence - well, female sexual continence - at all seriously, and her issues with Amber are tied up with Amber being in the sex industry. It'd make Ruby look bad, but it'd also tell Amber that Ruby really doesn't think like her.)

Let's also remember the comic's treatment of CPR. Frankly, it's not a source one should ever use as a guide in practical matters.

To be fair, Angel is looking increasingly feminine in this strip. Showing more skin means showing more of her slender figure, and she's dropped that cool androgynous facial expression in the excitement of the brawl. And of course, all three of these characters are fighting like girls. It'll be a wonder if any of them have any hair left by the end of the evening.

And talking of showing skin - Zii appears to have had an oddly useful intuition before she came out. She's wearing a bra, which she only does occasionally. Hey, if the comics are synched, what are the chances that she'll get home half-dressed to discover Gary and Tracy playing video games on the sofa, giving Tracy an opening to make another playful dig at Gary about under-dressed women wandering through his life?

First Sandra. Then Angel. Then Zii.

Dillion really has a thing for beating up women.

Or being beaten up by them. Anyway, they usually have more hair to pull.

And yet, he was incredibly jealous over the distant past between Jerzy and Angel; so much so that - despite the fact Jerzy made it very clear to him and Angel that he only had eyes for Dillon - he immediately assumed Jerzy was cheating on him because he was forcing Jerzy to visit his friend in secret.

Face it, the only reason he forgives Zii so quickly is because she's a friend, while Angel is the rival he firmly believes is responsible for his breakup.

Zii as the voice of reason . . . .

Well, here's a nice opportunity for Jerzy to show his quality.

No, he was jealous because of present events; Angel coming on to Jerzy like an express train and trying to flirt with him from the stage ("I Want You Back" indeed), and then Jerzy slipping off to meet Angel while trying (ineptly) to keep it secret from Dillon.

Sure, the fact that Jerzy and Angel had a history is what made him look like a plausible threat to Dillon, and sure, Dillon is a sad drama queen sometimes - but if Angel hadn't made it clear on their first meeting that there was a current issue, I doubt that Dillon would have indulged in more than a little token muttering for effect. We never saw or heard Dillon worrying about Matt's past, even after he discovered that Matt was bisexual.
