So...yeah, not an especially funny (or fun) comic to post, but I felt like this was kind of an important statement to make. Or something to point out, anyway. I felt a pretty lousy putting Didi in this situation, but life can be lousy sometimes.
This is sort of a companion/alternate piece to
, and I drew this one because, well, as fun as it is to imagine Gogo responding to this sort of crap on Didi's behalf in her usual manner, the fact is, this is how such a situation would go down in a more real way--absent of an avenging force like Gogo. (And the situation depicted here is pretty damned clean, really). It's destructive, demoralizing, and usually goes unpunished or unanswered. And it hurts when you're occasionally reminded that people can deliberately punch the joy and beauty right out of life with a few words.
I'll try not to make a habit of downer stuff like this, but this is one of those things in life that sticks in my craw.
