    i love panel four.
    that is exactly what i used as a response to that question around 11-15.

    How old *is* Girl? I never really thought about it until now.

    Panel four is great – a little bit of meta-ness in that we don’t seem to know how old Girl is either.

    To take the TH White stance on panels 2 and 3, I think it’s best to choose ‘undone’ over ‘done’ most of the time. Here read ‘most of the time’ as ‘when no one is looking.’

    From the pool of available data we may infer that girl is older than a high school graduate, did go to college, is not employed (steadily), and is getting pudgy.

    Late 20s?

    But, I guess that time travel negates all. I wonder if Cat and Girl have a wife?

    Girls responsibility can only be to herself, and to exploit the machine’s works to her advantage as much as possible.

    BTW, did I ever mention that I wonder how when and why the Vampire turned corporate? I mean, he’s already dead… Maybe it depends upon when you become a vampire in the first place. If it was long ago, you could live off your distributed dividends….

    Two of my favorite things about C&G are the little line that forms under the eye of a stressed character, and the way everybody always develops T-Rex arms when they are frightened.

    I don’t think it’s only a choice between subservience to the apparatus and ceasing to function *all of the time.* It would seem to be the most common scenario, but sometimes a certain critical mass is reached when stopping the apparatus becomes a viable option rather than simply dropping out of it.

    But in a time when there’s very little class-consciousness it comes down to purely personal, moral choices all too often, and how do we build on that?

    @ Ian R: “T-rex arms” Hilarious and apt.

    I am so glad there is Cat and Girl. Thank you for creating this, Dorothy.

    I think my father had a relapse of SCB (sickle cell bohemia) shortly before divorcing my mother… He’s now 53 with a contract based work-from-home job, a 42 foot wooden canoe end sloop in constant need of repair, and a penchant for wearing long patterned socks with shorts… I don’t think he’ll make it.

    Did I mention he was working to get his VW Westfalia van to run on biodiesel? It’s bad.

    Honestly people, the cure is terrible. How terrible? Let’s just put it like this;

    Two pale figures
    Ache in silence
    In the quiet ground
    Side by side
    In age and sadness

    I watched
    And acted wordlessly
    As piece by piece
    You performed your story
    Moving through an unknown past
    Dancing at the funeral party

  • Chris Kuan

    Bah; the cure’s not that bad.

    A friend of mine is nearing 40 and I got her to read _Walden_ for the first time… she didn’t keel over and die (yet).

    It doesn’t matter what your responsibility to the machine may be. You either keep spinning or get ground to dust. Just say’n…

    Hmmm, what about someone who refuses to wear shirts they didnt but on the internet? and makes me feel bad for buying two pairs of jeans on sale at jcpenny? theres nothing wrong with department store sales when my only other option is…well…short. right?

    I think there’s a third option: Becoming a cog that bounces around inside the machine, monkeying things up. The machinists will never find you, because you’ll always be in a different place. If enough of us cogs choose the bouncing life, eventually the whole machine will become bouncy and start to serve us instead of the other way ’round…

    this seems to be part of a trend I like to think of as the Golden Age of Cat and Girl. Fantastic comics, great art, excellent themes, gorgeous dialogue. if only I knew where it ended, if it has…..

    全体を通じて 素晴らしい物事のデザインパターンはあなたはちょうどのための努力とハードワークに関して。 場所を正確にあなた実際に置き忘れ私が個人的に第一号だったにあなたの細目。As people say, the devil is in the details… And that couldn’t be much more accurate at this point.Having said that, allow me tell you exactly what did work.Your text is certainly pretty powerful and this is possibly why I am taking the effort to comment.I do not make it a regular habit of doing that.2nd, even though I can see a leaps in logic you make, I am not confident of exactly how you appear to unite the points which inturn produce the final result.For right now I will yield to your issue however hope in the near future you connect your facts much better.
