does plot armor count if a comic is on long term, ice-age hiatus?

anyway I thought this chapter was going to wrap up quick but Donna has other opinions

man, not a lot of Autumn Bay partisans showing up here yet

this might be a rather one-sided fight

a long term thread in this comic: Donna's evolution from a gifted individual contributor to a truly great leader of women and men

not sure where she winds up, however

Maybe on a farm in Anvil Flats, maybe in a skyscraper in Autumn Bay, maybe on a gallows in Prester's Church

unlike most of my other characters over the years, Donna actually means well

thank god you're here, Microraptor! the rest of the commenters want Donna to skin Felicia alive, you gotta talk some sense into them

As I recall, this is how a lot of Felicia's investigations end up

Wow... just... wow. I was definitely not expecting this and I'm pleasantly surprised ^_^

no no here at Grinder$ we're pretty clear about expectations:

"sex AND violence"

says it right on the can

Donna, dear - you can't solve all your problems with a shovel!
Perhaps if you give Ms. K a chance to ask her questions to see where the interview would be going, you may be pleasantly surprised at her journalistic integ--- yeah, I can't even finish that statement with a straight face.
I've lived in the real world too long.
Go'head & hit her with the shovel.

tomorrow Felicia offers a compelling counterargument that will make us all feel like assholes

Donna is a flaming mess, but she’s actually a really good friend: caring, loyal (to a fault sometimes), and (over)protective.

Yep, I gotta agree with StLOrca, Donna may be crazy pants half the time (most of the time?), but she is actually more a force for good than bad. How you want to define "good" may be up for discussion, but that's semantics at this point. ;)

I do really like Donna's point about her employees though, sometimes life really is just that tough for women and I don't think they should be abused or shunned for trying to make an honest living. Makes me sad that it happens, but there's not really much I can do about it. Well, maybe if I won the Powerball jackpot or something I could, but that would require me to actually remember to buy a ticket...

when I was spitballing ideas for this comic Donna (previously "Dawn") started out as a labor organizer, but I bailed on that because I don't know shit about unions and organizing a workforce. however, I know what *bad* leadership looks like, and while Donna's no gifted leader, I wanted her to embody a basic sense of decency that's so often lacking in most workplaces. It would be difficult to sympathize with a protagonist that didn't value others, of course. But also putting blatantly exploitative cheesecake on just about every page without some sort of redeeming qualities would make this comic fucking unreadable trash

as opposed to marginally readable trash

Well, your idea worked and Donna is a great character, memorable, hilarious and sometimes completely realistic. Then again, maybe people have met someone like Donna, I just haven't so I'm guessing she's more an exaggeration than a reality.

Now, now, Donna. Felony Homicide is rarely the answer. Not never, but less often than some people think.

Give Felicia a chance to explain her position and vet her questions before agreeing to the interview.

you're gonna love this twist (of the knife)

also: is there even such a thing as *non* felony homicide?!

Justifiable and praiseworthy come to mind.

Pffft, you don't have to go all gory-gory quite now, just dig her up to her neck and have a nice talk with her - spank me if she doesn't see your point soon...

I think Felicia's going to be a foil for that reason

Felicia's pretty (and also awesome for many other reasons) but doesn't flaunt it
