To be fair, I strongly doubt Jenna's spent any time considering the question of whether or not her older brother is hot.

Thank The Lord for copy/paste
Okay, so lame news everybody. You know how I made such a big deal about the end of the Voting Incentive series Tuesday? You know how logic would dictate that I'd be making an announcement about the new series today? Well, uh, here's the thing: as you read this, I'll have been at Otakon for about a day, and as I WRITE this (a week in advance) I have no idea what, if any, internet access I'll have at the hotel. Thus, there's probably no new Voting Incentive at all, and thus no announcement. Tune in next week for the real deal (VOTE ANYWAY, THOUGH!)

As for the page, I like it, but I also have some nitpicky concerns (big surprise). As nice as it is to finally have Jenna and Layla interacting, it kind of feels like a missed opportunity to have it happen while Layla's so deep in her "Kevin's AWESOME!" act. I'd love to see how the feisty, willful, normal Layla and the resigned, submissive Jenna would bounce off each other.

Also, I can't help fearing that this page comes off as more of an insult to Kevin than intended. Granted, Kevin usually deserves whatever insults are hurled at him, but Jenna's one of the few people who wouldn't think of it. She's just legitimately curious, that's all (Also, as Page 320 demonstrates, Layla's technically not lying here!)

Personally, I'd think that most people don't consider if the level of physical attractiveness their siblings have. And I could even go as far as to say that, because of bias, a lot of people would be unable to give a reliable estimate.

And for someone that thinks she is so good at swindling, Layla doesn't seem to know how to handle these situations very well at all.
I'd also like to see how they would react to each other in 'normal' circumstances (...well, as normal as this comic can get anyway...)

... :D Well, I'd like to think I'm like, friends with you guys, so I'm allowed to spam this page with my comment, because I'd like to think you guys, like, care? :D

I always cringe when I reach last comic. Far Out There is really funny!

@MaDeR: Thank you so much! Also, I KNOW! It's so weird to shift from an archive binge to a normal schedule!

@CarrotSticks: If any of us actually used the forums, one might could make a case about keeping the comments on comic-related matters... but our little community lives entirely on the User Comments, and community's really dang important, so fire away!

@Seros Senric: Well, she IS good in purely business situations, but this is a purely social interaction she's trying to manipulate. She may have plenty of practice at swindling investors and such, but friends are another matter... In fact, come to think of it, We've never really heard Layla mention any friends other than Trigger, have we?
