Oh, there’s Penelope! It’s been a long time since we last saw her. 

I’ve been excited about introducing her girlfriend as well. She’s a character I very much enjoy! In my impatience I’ve shown her several times prior to her actual appearance (here and here) but it took a lot longer than expected for her to actually appear.

  1. Well, i wanted to see if i was right about what (or who) hit the oni last week, but this is sorta fun, too.

    Love the little spit in the final panel.

  2. She has great clothes and is an adorable ‘Pen’-pal’
    Another beautiful page with lots of little details.

  3. Been waiting for this moment for a while and it’s better than I imagined. They’re so cute together.

  4. Cool, my girlfriend is albino too. Bluest. Eyes. Ever.
    She jokes about needing sunblock to go outside and get the mail.

      • That’s a very common misconception. The lack of pigment in the iris makes them somewhat translucent, which means they can’t completely block light from entering the eye. Because of this, very light-colored eyes may appear red or pink in some lighting. This occurs because you’re seeing light reflected off the back of the eye and passing back out through the iris again, similar to the red-eye that occurs in a flash photo. In regular light, albino eyes tend to be very blue. Not that you’d notice, since my girlfriend wears sunglasses pretty much all the time, as she has difficulty seeing in bright light (she also can’t focus very well on fast-moving things).

  5. I just realized Albino lady is wearing a hearing aid (or some form of communication device) in her left ear.

    • Maybe. In panel 2 the left ear does look like it has a device in it. Looking at the other panels, it seems like the artist’s shorthand for ear structure.

  6. EVERYONE IS HOMO
    EVERYONE IS GAY WHEN YOU’RE PART OF A CREW
    EVERYONE IS HOMO
    AND IT’S ADORABLE
