Love Jezzi's latest Vaingirl Panels.

Great as always, but Jezzi - watch that addiction thing you mentioned. Been there done that, paid the price.
Take care.

Love Petar'd! but I should correct the quote if you don't mind.
It's Petard.
"Hoist with his own petard" literally means "blown up with his own mine." More generally, a "petard" is a hat-shaped device which can be be charged with gunpowder.
As for 'Baby in broad', the quote, ' How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is
To have a thankless child'.
From King Lear???

Keep up the good work my dear,
Jezzi Stewart

According to The Phrase Finder, both petar and petard are correct, though the latter is more common. Shakespeare, however, did use petar when writing Hamlet. For VG1223, I wanted a one word title that would express the whole phrase, so I turned petar into a verb and made it past tense. I could have used petar-ed, but the contraction petar'd has an elegant look to it the other lacked, I thought.

Hi Jezzi, there you go. All my googling came up with the alternative. No matter, it was still appropriate and your interpretation was clever.
I like alternative ideas in this genre and your VG 1231 was very poignant. The quandry, the love for her child. Nicely done. 1232, again with the sadness, I have worked with patients who have alzheimers, it is a terrible disease and how it effects the friends and family as opposed to the patient is the greater sadness. Having flashbacks to a normal memory must be terrible.
Marla's revenge on her brother is great, wouldn't we all like that problem? Keep up the work,
Jezzi Stewart

Thanks, Helen, the specific feedback is very nice. The originals for 1231-1233 are all the same comic and as I was going thru its issues at Cover browser, I immediately saw the stories in these three and pulled them all out at the same time to do as the first three of this ten; that's somewhat unusual for me. Out of every ten, I pick the one I like best and put it in a special folder (same with every hundred) For this 10, I picked 1232.

I like "If It Wasn't For the Aunts" in itself, but the title also got me thinking about prominent fictional characters with meddling aunts of a different sort...

Has anyone ever tried writing a TG Bertie Wooster story? Dang, I think it could actually work, and even somewhat seamlessly. (Since Bertie seldom shows much interest in sex of any kind, becoming a girl might not throw him off as much as you'd expect!)

Others I particularly like:
1231: I like the theme of "dealing with it and moving on," and that even presented with an unexpected choice, would you go back to what you once were?
1237: Excellent repurposing of the image, and another story I'd love to actually read!
1238: Love the concept, and would like to see what results of these first steps into femininity!

Great work, Jezzi. My fav is #1233, "Best served femme". There's just something about that whole "mother feminizes son" genre that appeals to me...

Great re-caps, but I particularly liked 1231. It reminded me of the altered fate of Stan Peterson/Maritza Tavarez in Dannielle J's "Best Laid Plans".

Hi Jezi, I was going through your new ones and I have to say you are going from strength to strength.
Of the new ones I love 'Love and Heartbreak' Original: G.I. Sweethearts comics, #33
It reminds me how nervous I was on my first outings, although I never had the problems he is going to have!
I also loved this one

They're all imaginative but these two stand out for me,

You always do great work, Jezzi. You don't need me to tell you that. (But it's kinda nice to hear anyway; I hear ya.)

I quite liked #1301: Simple text, nicely understated (for both the character and the artist).

Also excellent is #1305. The only thing I'd change is to lose the "Look out world" in the thought balloon. It feels wrong, it's superfluous. The rest of the text is great.

In #1306, did anyone else find themselves wanting to be the brunette instead?
