I love getting further and further away from the original publish date of this strip and seeing it set against an era with more and more mainstream inclusivity. It's painful to read it this week, for heartbreaking reasons. But on the whole, things have gotten so much better since then.
Whenever I see this strip, I think about what my old friend said, which I mentioned briefly below the chaser, and I admit I'm pretty smug about how wrong he was. And how inundated the comics world is with queer content now. This takeover was a long time coming!
