Comic for Wednesday, Oct 28, 2015

You and me both, Sarah. I mean, I don't really hate them, but neither do you.

One might be scratching their heads right about now wondering why I bothered to go on about this detail in the previous commentary if I was going to bring it up in the comic itself. The fact of the matter is simply that I hadn't planned to elaborate on it in the comic itself, but then realized that of course they were going to talk about the side effects of Ellen's origin, and of COURSE this particular aspect would be noteable to Sarah.

Then, just as I was realizing that, it occurred to me that Grace might be in a similar situation as Ellen. She's a shapeshifter and part Uryuom, a species that only has hair on their head when it suits them, and none anywhere else. Granted, the shapeshifter part alone is enough for her to not have to deal with shaving, but having it be something she's never had to deal with at all allowed for the moment in panel three, so I guess that's canon now.

Canon: Decided by what needs to be true for a joke to work.
