After being silently cowed yesterday, Mindy today has completely disappeared. We can only hope that she stomped out of the building in a righteous huff, deleted Pete’s number from her phone, and re-uploaded Tinder and Linked In.
Kudos to everyone yesterday that pointed out that Pete has totally written kid sidekicks before, with no mention of his apparently crippling phobia of pubescent partners in crime fighting. Maybe since that time he has unconsciously internalized The Seduction of the Innocent, and now sees all comic team-ups through goggles of pederasty.
Holtron sighting in the background today. Like they realized they couldn’t fit the Cosmic Treadmill in every panel. The extra background detail almost makes up for Darin’s terrible three-fingered hand in panel one.
I can hear in my head the tone of voice that Darin is using in panel 3. It’s sad, disappointed, and only barely curious.
20-1 odds on there being a sideways Comic Cover tomorrow. With a repeat of this joke in a panel at the bottom.
