It really is a cute skirt. I didn't force Yuko to get it, but she said the only way she'd ever wear a skirt is if it was given to her. I think she meant it to be dismissive, but I took her at her word and now she is burdened with a black H & M skirt. She actually got another one recently - it's a nice rust color. That might make me Yuko's arch nemesis in her quest to look like a guy ... Love and war and all that, I suppose.

Forcing femininity on Yuko.... for shame Ananth!

There's an H&M in Union Square!

Sooo next time you and the gang are up in NYC I can take you to the H&M in Union Square. Or right off Union Square, someone may berate me on logistics but you can see the damned sign from the square.

Anything to make friends miserable.

why do I get the feeling she looks a lot better in it than is drawn here?

 It's true. She looks real

Comment by Ananth Tue, 11/11/2008 - 10:13

 It's true. She looks real good. :D

Somehow, I imagine the comic

Somehow, I imagine the comic being just as funny if it were only the second panel.

D8 I feel your pain! I thought that I won't wear it unless someone bought would work for me too ;_;

Wow, you got Yuko to wear a mini mean feat in my opinion.
I bet she looks cute x 10.

Kind of off topic, but do I

Kind of off topic, but do I see Ananth's eyes in the top panel? Do you actually draw them and then go over them, Aido?

Haha, good question! XD

Comment by Aido Wed, 11/12/2008 - 11:37

Sorry, I don't!  I'll draw in a vague guide where the shadow of his hat ends and then hatch it in.

I have a black skirt from H&M which looks kinda like that one 8D

The thing about skirts is, they are addictive. SOON ALL YOU WILL WEAR IS SKIRTS.

Teehee.... I wish that I had your problem Yuko... I'm trying to go the other way though. I want to look more naturally feminine..... damn I hate being m2f Transgendered.... :P

Split the difference

Comment by Thistle (not verified) Sat, 11/29/2008 - 13:14

You could split the difference and buy a utilikilt? They have pockets. :D

I love all these comics, they're so expressive and fun! This one in particular is adorably hilarious! :D

Skirts, and the forced wearing of them

Comment by pell (not verified) Mon, 12/29/2008 - 20:16

Well if it's going around, then maybe the guys should wear some too. Then everyone would be in unisex skirts.


Comment by HotCathode (not verified) Tue, 02/03/2009 - 02:59

Okay, with the way she's is drawn in all the other comics, this is the first time I actually realised Yuko was a girl. :P I know, I know, I should have realised, but you never actually said it before. I think. Did you? I don't know anymore. But yes, Yuko does look very cute in a skirt in this. :P

Wait a minute...

Comment by Aubrey (not verified) Tue, 02/17/2009 - 19:25

Yuko's a girl?! Oh geez, this whole time I thought that-- wow. I really should have seen otherwise. I mean, -ko is a feminine suffix! HOW COULD I HAVE MISSED THAT C'MON AUBREY GET A CLUE

(PS: Now that the identity crisis has subsided, Yuko is still one of my personal favorites, and SHE certainly does rock that little skirt.)

had to really look

Comment by DigitalSocrates (not verified) Tue, 04/28/2009 - 16:07

I started reading backward from the current strip, when i got linked from QC. I started getting light hints that yuko was a girl, despite all visual evidence to the contrary (and a cast page that didn't help).

I finally went back to the beginning, (this strip) to get final confirmation!

Dear gosh I heart you people

Comment by Kiley B. (not verified) Wed, 06/17/2009 - 06:34

I found you through QC, of course, because I'm lame and stalk them, but I just read, like... everything? tonight of course. I'm insane a little bit

But I love this! Johnny Wander is wonderful and fun and obscene and i couldn't stop snickering when I read this, because I have had that same exact situation

although I beat the skirt that was bought for me, I only wore it wearing knee high boots and black legging things, so it's girlish purpose was slightly defeated

hearts for you all <3

Looking at this back... Yuko

Comment by R (not verified) Sat, 02/19/2011 - 02:14

Looking at this back... Yuko might be a bit masculine, but I bet she looks CUTE in a skirt... And Anath, do you always wear a cap in the house?
