I'm kind of glad that Allison spelled out that Grendel's mom was supposed to be viewed as attractive. I really like his art style, but it's sometimes hard to pick out the hotties from the notties. I was wondering if she was just supposed to be viewed as a standard over-protective mom or a sezzy over-protective mom.

I'm trying to figure out if I should be proud that I recognize a sexy cartoon lady as a sexy cartoon lady.

I thought that was Jack's possible admirer and her blonde friend among those attacking the donut table yesterday. I'm curious to see where this goes.

this arc continues to make me like Linton more

I couldn't have possibly liked Mildred any more than I already did, this arc is just continuing my admiration

apparently Allison's coping mechanism for keeping SGR fresh is introducing a bunch of new characters, and I don't mind a whit

This arc has raised a serious question for me - are there actually people in Britain named Grendel? Like after the monster from Beowulf?

Mildred is one of those people who really knows how to adult but is stuck waiting for her physical self to catch up with her mind. We've all known one of those, I think. Their sarcasm has a mono-molecular edge.

is it wrong that I want someone in the midst of this epic adventure to refer to the borers that drilled the wen-tack tunnelway as some "bad machinery"

I'll be at least mildly disappointed if Mildred doesn't steal a bulldozer during this story.

It feels like a bit of tease to give us a character with a bad-ass skull on the back of her jacket and then only ever show her from the front.

Then again, I'm willing to forgive a lot for "TEEN BO$$".
