"Oh, hiiii, Dawn... I'm here with a classmate. Who are you here with?"
This is promising. What might happen? Continued cold stares? Full-on girl fight? Trash talk over fashion choices? Iris: Interesting top, Dawn. Did you design it yourself, or did a t-shirt and overalls mate in your closet?Dawn: Hi, Iris. Going to an afternoon tea dance with your boy-toy as a plus-one?
All of a sudden, I hear The Trammps' DISCO INFERNO beginning to play.It's going to be quite the hot encounter.
Dawn Weston's Evil Twin will be doing cartwheels over today's strip. Finally, boring perpetual college student Dawn has gone Goth, or Steampunk, or...something.Iris: Dawn dear, stop frowning! You don't want your face to freeze like that, do you?Dawn: Cheating on my dad! Why you old hag, with your matchy-matchy earrings and dress!
Oh YAY. Dawn gets to moralize and preach to Iris about Life Choices And Behaviour.Who better?
This has to be the first time an MW illustration (Dawn's judgmental stare) implied volumes of dialogue mwithout succumbing to some lame platitude, although that can still happen..Here's to June Brigman for bringing this assumption-rich image to life. Not looking forward to Dawn and Iris trading "hellos" for the rest of the week...
Wait, this is something, right?! Something is going to happen, I think!
I'd love to see Mary and Tommy, jitterbugging in the background.
In panel one, Iris's urge to void will vanish, and she'll do a 180 and usher Zak outta there. In panel two she will be in bed, and we will see Wilbur's floating head as Iris confronts her lust and guilt.
I will point out that Dawn is the onw dating a teacher. Iris is dating another student. Who can really judge here?
Who can judge? Why, Mary, of course.
As difficult as she is to like and as inadvisable as her fling with Zak may be, Iris owes not one word of explanation to Dawn.
Does Iris even recognize Dawn in her new Gothy look or is Iris just surprised to see the line to the Lady's Room is a little long, and some weirdo at the back of the line is also upset at the length of the line and is giving Iris the "This line is so long... am I right?" look.
Cat fight!!Iris more or less did dump Wilbur before he left, so she's technically not really cheating. She's just dating someone out of her age bracket but then again, so is Dawn. The whole theme of this strip seems to be 'inappropriate relationships.'
Sorry Darth Curt - If I saw Dawn's expression I would definitely not be thinking about the length of the line at the ladies' room. I would be thinking, "Feet, don't fail me now!"
Meanwhile Tommy sits in a tree stalking Tina Baby after huffing Iris rubber cement, sucking all of the gas out of the whipped cream container and downing the fermented Kelk wine he had been making under his bed.
I have to go to the LADIES' ROOM, but don't worry, it's only NUMBER ONE, so I'll be RIGHT BACK!
Meanwhile, Zak and Harlan are in the men's room discussing their tools. Jackhammers, drills and the like. Manly men discussing what they plan to demolish tonight.
As the DJ places the needle on Klymaxx's 'Meeting in the Ladies Room'...
