Close, But Not Quite

Bitchery reader Suzanne sent me a link to this snort-worthy comic that adds a modern twist to the end of a romance novel. Personally, I hope happily-ever-after does involve a recliner because woodamn those things are comfy.

But I do have to point out one fallacy: HEROES have jet black hair. Heroines can have black hair, but it’s usually described in terms of “fathomless depths of midnight” or whatall. Jet, while describing a bead, also calls to mind aviation travel, and there are few things more overtly phallic than a jet plane. Jeez people. If you’re going to mock my art, get it right. As Candy says, “God is in the details.”
