The lower speech bubble in the 1st pannel, shouldn't it be pointing towards Aaiana instead of Ingrid?

Other than that, it -is- kind of odd that she pulled such an expensive looking necklace out of it. I'm really starting to think she's some kind of Cat-burglar too, now!
Would certainly explain her parkouring 3 blocks over so quickly, heh.

Yeah, latex catsuit + fancy jewelry does rather look like a hint at cat burglary. I can't think of a saner explanation. Sigh. Getting a bit goofy here. Talking of which, Sandra's sudden access of lesbian jealousy still feels like it's suddenly emerged from left field.

And Cammi and Ingrid seem quite smitten, or at least deep in lust. I wonder if Ingrid has forgotten her hopes of getting Alex and Marie into a threesome?

Oops, thanks for pointing it out... fixed.

If there are fashion models and cat burglars in the real world, I don't see why there can't be fashion models and cat burglars in this comic world as well ^o^ Ha ha ha ha ha ha

Oh, I'm not saying it ruins the comic or anything. Having both wandering around bumping into each other this way just makes it more cinematic than I previously thought. (And real cat burglars probably don't wear latex cat suits.)

Okay now she's digging herself even more deeper and the cringe levels are starting to turn even me away.

She is indeed a wonderful artist who could doubtless turn her hand to anything, but from what I've seen, I don't get the feeling that she's very interested in depicting some of those bits in all their wrinkly Lovecraftian glory.

But if she’s Catwoman, is that a misanthropic orphan billionaire’s mother’s necklace?

oh, no, my statement was a joke. That's why I had the "ha ha ha ha ha" part at the end... I mean, I gotta admit, this is getting pretty goofy ^o^

Either Aina is a cat burglar or that's a family heirloom. Either way Sandra does not know what she's messing around with here.

...Because in webcomicland, there’s no such thing as straight. Not even for characters who once established conclusively that they were.

My guess is that the old Sandra/DiDi date plot was intended at the time to establish that, yes, those two are actually straight. But the default dramatic plot in these comics assumes that everyone is bi (and a cynic would also mutter something about fan service here), so both had eventually to be given a get-out from that simple fact, to allow for standard Ma3-universe plotting.

Gary is probably lucky that the writers never found a plot (or sufficient fan service) in him succumbing to Dillon's importuning. Though female characters may simply be at greater risk from this effect than male (for reasons that certainly have nothing at all to do with fan service), which would also explain why Dillon always remained as gay as a very gay thing indeed.
