Notes from the Manager
Related Strips: #627: Greenlit
In case you've forgotten who "Sarah" is, she's the new assistant manager, who has only appeared once before.
What Jason's talking about doesn't really apply just to black characters, but all minority characters, and while it's going away… slowly… there are still a ton of examples of it. (Look, I don't make this shit up. I observe.) And, to be fair, to some extent, it mirrors reality. Interracial relationships weren't nearly as common 20-some years ago as they are now, although obviously they happened. I mean, duh… I'm the product of one.
I have to admit, after having Franklin be an equal opportunity player for the last several years, when I decided to have him start dating Tease (secretly, so far), it occurred to me that it could be construed as falling in line in with this trope, which I do notice a lot in fiction and sometimes find a it a bit disconcerting.
But since I didn't create Letizia expressly to date Franklin, I didn't care. The fact is, no matter what I do, some jerk-ass could read whatever imaginary message they want into just about every single strip I do, so why worry about it?

We met BOTH milestone goals (last night and today), which also means Multiplex: The Revenge has passed its funding goal! There’s still a little time (before 9PM Central on Friday) to add your pledge, if you want to get in on the action, but I’ll be using BackerKit so that Kickstarter backers can upgrade or add onto their pledges and non-backers can pre-order the book or other items that are available as rewards. More on that in the next few days, though.
By hitting the goal, we have plenty of funds for Book Three’s print run, so any additional funding will go toward Book FOUR… which, again, I’ll tell you more about later.
For now, just read this Bad Boys review comic:
