Proof that outside of Lisa, Batiuk can only draw three kinds of women: homely, fat and older than they are; look like guys or hatchet-faced.
That is generally true; however in today’s strip, Alex is made to resemble a homely, fat, older hatchet-faced guy. A grand slam! Actually, she resembles Les’ bag-lady-turned-superagent Ann Apple.
Mallory’s “costume” consists of a nice dress which would’ve been appropriate even for a non-Zombie homecoming, and a couple randomly applied dabs of grime (and is this the un-bloodiest zombie gathering ever?). Actually, she does look pretty good, particularly for a Batiuk female, but we’ll let the Goth chick enjoy her little zinger.
