The Big Bob-Blog

Let's start out easy for our first one: Questionable Content

I like Questionable Content a lot. I know I'm not the only one. I also really like the blossoming relationship between Marten and Dora. Faye's fine and all, but Dora's just awesome on every level. A good example of that is comic #610.

That Dora can talk to Marten about fairly serious things like this- Marten is literally passive to a fault- while keeping a sense of humor is a character trait I admire. It's also a sign of Jacques' growth as a storyteller that he can take these kind of shots at his main character. Dora expressing some leavened-but-honest frustration at Marten's passivity is a refreshing change from the Marten/Faye dynamic, where everything seems to be either totally frivolous or utterly serious.

A large part of it is that when Dora's flirting with Marten, you know she's not just leading him on. That's gotta be a pleasant change of pace for the poor dude.
