Master of Stripes

Master of Stripes

Tue, 11/01/2011 - 17:37 by Ananth in response to monochrome lifestyle

There was a period during which Yuko was into buying colors but recently it's been all greys! It's a good look on her. 

Volume 2 is coming along! It's going to be 152 pages, so bigger than the last installment. More info as it comes! 

See you Thursday!

Are you cosplaying as the Doctor on a Black and White TV?

Was hoping to see how your Halloween was! Halloween posts never get old.

Also, glad to see that someone else has as awesome of fashion sense as I do. Hi-five, sister.

I'm the same way...

Blacks and grays predominate my wardrobe. I wish I had that many stripey things. I'm working on it.

Maybe she buys all grey clothes to reflect her comic self, since it's always in black, grey, and white.

If you wanted to you could

If you wanted to you could think that everything is always striped, it's just that seemingly solid things have all the stripes the same color.

Because I only have the vaguest interests in fashion I have a wardrobe built on laziness, all solids of blues, reds, and purples with jeans and jackets always black. Nice and easy.

reminds me of an old time-y fashionable prison uniform, just throw on the ankle shackles.

What's wrong with grey...?

Comment by GreyDuck (not verified) Tue, 11/01/2011 - 18:43

There's nothing at all wrong with grey, says the little grey duck...

Most of my clothing is black, grey or shades of them, don't worry Yuko, you're not alone. xD

Super-excited for volume 2!

...just had to throw that in there. Er, right.

Stripes are cool

Comment by Anii (not verified) Tue, 11/01/2011 - 19:39

Girl knows what she likes- nothin' wrong with that- if it looks awesome, why mess with it?

On the note about vol. 2... holy cowz I can't wait!! Also I can't wait to see what the little opening maw will look like- it was major cool to sign all Vol 1's with Maw hats!!

I too seem to have too many

I too seem to have too many greys and stripes in my wardrobe.

I also don't know how it happened. ._.

Probably because you're so

Comment by Jubal (not verified) Tue, 11/01/2011 - 19:57

Probably because you're so used to shading everything with grey stripes.

It's okay

Comment by Kilimbo (not verified) Tue, 11/01/2011 - 20:27

I wear all black all the time for the exact purpose, and you should see my jacket. I never take it off, even during Summer.

Me without jacket is the equivalent to if George stopped smiling.

Point is, it's awesome, keep going.

at the fact that this is me with blue. I am wearing five shades of blue and flip flops. Glasses don't count I think. At least I'm not the only one C:

What you need is a song by the Powerpuff Girls!

I love that song.

Love makes the world go round! That whole episode with the mime rocked.

You know, the one with the stripes.

Perhaps you've been doing the comic so long it's just an example of life imitating art?

It's the long dark tea time

Comment by kaze (not verified) Tue, 11/01/2011 - 23:46

It's the long dark tea time of the soul. grey stripes are in, and one longs for a nice cup of mint tea with a little milk in it.

I suffer the same wonderful disease, right down to my underwear. I actually have to tell myself, "NO, you already have a shirt like that" every time I walk into Target.

(I am wearing a navy-and-grey tee shirt as I type this.)

In this racy installment of Johnny Wander, Yuko is not wearing most of her clothes. #trafficgatheringposts

Oh my god...there, on the bottom right...IS THAT A SWEATER DRESS?!?!


Comment by OhThatChristina (not verified) Wed, 11/02/2011 - 10:05

You're quite lucky! I have one of those builds where horizontal stripes are very unflattering... so if I find something adorable but it's striped, I have to pass it by! Ultimate Fashion Sadface ensues.

Paper Doll?

Comment by Chuck (not verified) Wed, 11/02/2011 - 10:52

I demand a Yuko paper doll, so I can play dress-up! What? I don't particularly like show tunes more than the next guy. Why do you ask?

Multiple sets, of course.

Comment by Nick (not verified) Wed, 11/02/2011 - 11:27

She's began the transition into a real-life cartoon character. Now she just needs to boil it down into one outfit to wear every day for the rest of her life!


Comment by Al Paradise (not verified) Wed, 11/02/2011 - 12:40

One stripe to rule them all, and in the darkness bind them.

Everything i own is blue or has blue in it....

Technically those are hoops/bands, it is only virtical 'stripes' that are called stripes.

I have the same problem

Comment by Aikachi (not verified) Wed, 11/02/2011 - 16:20

I have the same problem except with purple. Through conscious decision making I am able to overcome it and buy clothing that isn't purple, but then I default to teal instead. I am cursed XD

Yuko, you are the gijinka of Lord Monochromicorn.

Heh. You match your comic

Heh. You match your comic now. Heh.

Comment by Sparkle (not verified) Wed, 11/02/2011 - 23:49

I'm in the same boat! I love jeweltones, but lately it seems that everything I buy is gray. Which I also love. So it works out.


Comment by Number Seven (not verified) Thu, 11/03/2011 - 01:05

Wasn't it horizontal stripes that made one appear shorter? I thought one of them did.

Any particular reason?


Comment by Koru (not verified) Thu, 11/03/2011 - 13:52

I had a dream last night that Yuko lived close by. She came to my door trying to sell me organic tamales or something. Looked like she'd been going door-to-door for some kind of fund raiser. I got really excited since it was Yuko, but I wasn't hungry. I tried to convince my roommate to buy one, but Yuko ran out of time and had to go. When she was gone I gushed on my roommate--"Oh my god, do you know who that was?" It was awesome.

Also this comic is hilarious.

I thought you minded your height?

Yuko those stripes make you look shorter than you actually are

Comment by Kisai (not verified) Mon, 11/21/2011 - 02:13


My wardrobe (without even looking at it) consists of 90% black or almost black (dark blue.) I found that I subconsciously buy things that won't look like they pick up dye in the wash. I can tell because somehow my socks are the exact opposite of my tops, they're all white with a few rare black ones. The socks all eventually end up grey because I have.... black shoes.
