Lessons about life I've learned from survival horror games:

1) Always take the food with you.
2) Grab whatever ammo you can find.
3) Lengthy hallways, staircases and elevator rides always contain jump scares.

That's about it, really.

As for this comic...

When two villains face off in the comics, you always end up with a situation where the one villain suddenly becomes slightly more likable and the other one becomes even nastier than usual so we readers aren’t burdened with any ambiguity as to whom we should root for. I feel myself slipping into that old trope here, I suppose.

In a face-off between Tracee and Heather, though, I can't help but side with Tracee. She's ridiculous and a sort of untrustworthy, but her ridiculousness stems entirely from her own nature. Heather's ridiculousness, meanwhile, stems from her ambition.

For those of you sceptical about the existence of a stroller that costs $1000, believe me, theres a bunch of them. And for those of you who doubt the fact that any human being in his or her right mind would ever pay that much money for a f#$%ing stroller, let me reassure you that people can get pissy and competitive about anything.

Oh, and for our non-Canadian readers, Canadian $100 bills are brown. They have a picture of Robert Borden (prime minister 1911-1920) on them. Theyre also usually made of a weird, semi-transparent plastic material now. Its kind of strange and makes me long for the old-fashioned goodness of paper money. And for those who are curious, no, bringing home the Bordens is not something we say up here.

Though we probably should.

As for this comic

Not much to say here, beyond the fact that Im probably channelling Dolly Partons logic when she said of herself, It takes a lot of money to look this cheap. I like to think of Tracee as Dolly Parton without the kindness. Or the talent. Or the sense of humour. So really, nothing like Dolly Parton at all. Except for one thing. (Well, two things.)

Also, the battles already ostensibly started and I have to be honest that I still dont know who Im rooting for here. I love to hate both these characters to such an extent that Im almost developing a fondness for them.

Almost.

Many readers have feared (hoped?) that the Tale of Two Blondes would lead to Heather and Tracee forming a powerful blonde alliance, but (as can be seen clearly in this comic) that can never happen.

Readers have noted and rightly so that Heather and Tracee, though very different on the surface, have very similar characters and motivations deep down. So in theory, they should work well together, right? But heres the fascinating thing about vapid, shallow people like Heather and Tracee: for them, surface differences are the only differences that matter. Anything below the surface, for all intents and purposes, does not exist. They cannot see kindred spirits in each other.

Also, theres only room for one alpha. Theyre like the Sith that way. Minus the apprentice.

Tracee and Heather may, of course, find themselves united in a common cause at some point in the future, but certainly not right now. As Wilde once put it, Women only call each other sisters when theyve called each other a lot of other things first.

As for this comic

Hey, look! Two male characters are talking to each other! You might have noticed that this is a relatively rare occurrence in this comic. Im proud to say that the Puck archive passes the Bechdel test quite frequently. At a glance, I counted about 113 strips where two female characters converse about something other than a male character. Its the reverse Bechdel test (two males conversing about something other than a female) where this comic usually fails. Only 13 strips in the entire run vaguely come close to passing reverse Bechdel test, and almost all of those are the Sigmund and Satan comics. Maybe I missed a few, though. Feel free to count!

Im not even sure if this particular comic qualifies for passing the reverse Bechdel test, but Ill include it in the count because their conversation is ostensibly about a shower, which, technically speaking, is not a female character. So that makes 14.

Of course, this bias toward female conversation in Puck has less to do with forward thinking or gender equality than it does with my penchant for drawing girls and my general discomfort with male social patterns. And though many of my comics theoretically pass the Bechdel test, I feel like some should be disqualified on account of the female characters wearing bikinis.

That said, I never write anything to pass some form of test. I write the comic because Well, I Why do I write this comic anyway? Honestly, your guess is as good as mine.

If anyones wondering how proud I am of the design for Tracees outfit, the answer is Very.

My wife was mildly shocked by the outfit. Thats a bold choice for an all-girls gathering, she commented. That dress is an official your husband wants to do me dress, which can be very dangerous to wear when surrounded by other women.

Which is kind of the idea, I guess. Into the lions den!

And for those who dont know their sports gambling terminology, Daphnes just saying that she thinks Tracee has little chance of winning. A point spread is basically like a handicap designated to the underdog team for gambling purposes. Thus the bet would be not whether Tracee loses, but whether Tracee loses by more than four points. Which, of course, begs the Wait, Im explaining the joke again, arent I?

As for this comic

This is one of those five minutes before I post the comic, I become very unsure as to whether its actually funny or not comics. My wife said that it wasnt exactly funny, but that it did qualify as cute. If it even qualifies as mildly amusing, I guess thats something. Oh well. Too late to do anything about it now!

All I can say is that this comic most certainly will qualify as one of the top 500 totally free comics you may potentially read this week.

Thats all Im ever aiming for, I guess.
