Games For Women
There's an increasing debate on developing games that are marketable to women. In Japan, they simply make games specifically only for women. I made up the title "How To Becoming More Betterful Woman", but it rings true. They have a DS game that teaches women how to masturbate (the mechanic apparently approximates petting puppies in Nintendogs) and a game designed by a male ex-model that teaches women how to walk properly.
Originally, I started writing up a completely different comic strip. I was upset at the politicians that immediately pounced upon the Virginia Tech murders to further their various agendas. I was going to use "presidential candidate Dave" to sarcastically propose a ban on schools, since these tragedies couldn't occur without populated campuses. But I felt that I'd be guilty of the same offense as the opportunistic vultures that I was attempting to satirize.
