Lance is apparently showing amazing perspicacity here, as I’m not sure Eskimo has so far done anything to entirely confirm that she prefers the ladies; but perhaps she mentioned in an off-camera conversation, or (more likely) Lance’s entire thought process here is “But Bob and the Boss are not cute, and Kyra and Michelle are.”
I have no idea what the conversation is that led up to this. I guess they were just discussing last storyline’s adventures. Actually, this script was written for the end of the circus adventure, but then I decided it would make the epilogue too long and plodding, so I folded it in here.
This strip is a good example of fixing in post. I wrote Eskimo’s line as “Scratched their eyes out!” but then I realized that the lion really didn’t do that; but arguably he did scratch her face off. So I wrote “face off!” on another piece of paper and stitched it in after the fact. Not necessarily the first thing a tech-savvy person would think of, I know, but I find it pretty much impossible to replicate my own pen-handwriting with a mouse.
