It’s kind of weird that the lab has separate ladies’ and men’s rooms, what with there being only three human staff members, but Helen tends to be scrupulous about that kind of thing.
I hope you find this joke funny, because I’m just going to keep repeating it until I run out of dudes.
Yes, this goes on for a while.
Argh, I love Seth. I have an inordinate fondness for little angry nerd guys. Over on Skin Horse, Nick is my favorite character by an embarrassingly wide margin. (Jeff’s favorite character is Sweetheart, but he loves animals who sometimes wear funny hats the way I love angry nerds.)
Speaking of Skin Horse, some readers of that strip have suggested that nerdgirl Marcie is Seth’s sister. This seems entirely possible. They’ve both got the curly red hair and freckles going on.
Man, that’s a short dress on Mell.
Aw, poor Seth. He’s not inured to this stuff like Dave and Artie are. It’s okay; he’ll get used to it.
The little illegible equations written on the bathroom stall are cute. I guess sometimes Helen is just seized by inspiration.
Less than an hour after this strip first went live, I had sold the original art.
Here Seth turns out to have a useful function in the storyline: explaining nerd references that Dave is too embarrassed to explain. It was Andrew’s idea to dress Helen as Emma Frost. Andrew is full of good ideas.
And, yes, by, “It was this or nothing!” the demon does in fact mean that outfit or nothing. Dave is also full of good ideas.
