 As for this comic… Hey, look!  Two male characters are talking to each other!  You might have noticed that this is a relatively rare occurrence in this comic.  I’m proud to say that the Puck archive passes the Bechdel test quite frequently.  At a glance, I counted about 113 strips where two female characters converse about something other than a male character.  It’s the reverse Bechdel test (two males conversing about something other than a female) where this comic usually fails.  Only 13 strips in the entire run vaguely come close to passing reverse Bechdel test, and almost all of those are the ‘Sigmund and Satan’ comics. Maybe I missed a few, though.  Feel free to count! 

I’m not even sure if this particular comic qualifies for passing the reverse Bechdel test, but I’ll include it in the count because their conversation is ostensibly about a shower, which, technically speaking, is not a female character.  So that makes 14.

Of course, this bias toward female conversation in Puck has less to do with forward thinking or gender equality than it does with my penchant for drawing girls and my general discomfort with male social patterns.  And though many of my comics theoretically pass the Bechdel test, I feel like some should be disqualified on account of the female characters wearing bikinis.

That said, I never write anything to pass some form of test.  I write the comic because… Well, I… Why do I write this comic anyway?  Honestly, your guess is as good as mine.

 As for this comic…

If anyone’s wondering how proud I am of the design for Tracee’s outfit, the answer is “Very.”

My wife was mildly shocked by the outfit.  “That’s a bold choice for an all-girls gathering,” she commented.  “That dress is an official your husband wants to do me dress, which can be very dangerous to wear when surrounded by other women.”

Which is kind of the idea, I guess.  Into the lion’s den!

And for those who don’t know their sports gambling terminology, Daphne’s just saying that she thinks Tracee has little chance of winning.  A point spread is basically like a handicap designated to the underdog team for gambling purposes. Thus the bet would be not whether Tracee loses, but whether Tracee loses by more than four points.  Which, of course, begs the … Wait, I’m explaining the joke again, aren’t I?

Just a friendly daily reminder about the new Puck voting incentive pic up on TWC! This one's horrifying! Seriously, though - kinda creepy. You've been warned.
