Daisy: Noooo, no boobeh shots! D=
This comic just made everyone sad with the lack of chest window! We demand more boob shots!
We could also have some side-boob windows.
Side boob is almost better than naked boob in some way
i don’t know many things, but i do know that what you said is FACT.
Dorothy’s fondling her boobs, so it’s all good.
Chest Window (chest win-dow) n. The interval of time in which it is permissible to grope.
This window does not include “While saying hello” in case anyone out there was wondering. I have brought you this information via SCIENCE!
Saw that happen once. It did not turn out well. I thought poorly of the man. Little did I know he was a scientist suffering that we all might learn.
Chest Window: An opening in a shirt around the breast area that facilitates ‘motorboating’.
Your current avatar makes that *hilarious.*
And Robin is just the sort of person to do that sort of thing.
Oh god, chest windows.
That should be the editorial. “NEEDS MORE CHEST WINDOW”.
I got a fever, and the only prescription is more chest window
By tomorrow there will be will be fan art with the chest window
You say that like they’re not already making fan art with the chest window.
There had better be fan art with the chest window, or I will be disappointed.
With that icon, I am………….AMUSED……..
Meh. Would’ve been funnier with Daisy or Joe.
(Speaking of Joe, wouldn’t surprise me if the chest window winds up on him. Or Mike.)
Or your mom.
I just realized upon seeing MM’s gravatar that DOB’s Amazi-girl costume has the colors inverted from Shortpacked!’s version. A fan art I did a while back:
Not really sure what this could signify. Nothing at all, most likely.
Also realized that the theoretical chest window (or “boobie hatch”) would hafta be in the shape of her logo initial, cuz there’s not room for both…unless it’s just the triangle in the A – not really a window then, more like a peephole. It has to be clear that it’s a design element of the costume and not just shoddy maintenance – “Ohmigod, it’s Homeless Girl!”
That is made even better by your avatar. Thumbs up sir and/or madam.
You say that as if it hasn’t already been done.
Well, maybe it hasn’t, or if it has, just not published.
Would a fan-art edit be ok?
Maybe the next campus vigilante will have a chest windows just for you, Daisy!
Unfortunately, that vigilante will be .
And then it’ll be a dude.
Great, now I’m picturing Superman with a chest window.
That would be awesome.
Your avatar is perfect for that comment.
Also known as a tit window.
Just keeping you informed.
If this Daisy joke was a horse, it’d be glue by now.
“If this Daisy joke were a horse, Catherine the Great would be dead by now.”
A splash in the paper might not be the only moistness around if there was a chest window =O
At this point, Daisy has laid so many of her cards on the table, it’s broken. The cards are from multiple decks. Some are cards from Uno and Monopoly. She’s still laying down cards.
Dorothy’s casual nerd-familiarity is no surprise at this point. I’m not sure whether Daisy picked up “chest window” from comics or from “100 ways to reveal female flesh to my horny, horny eyes.”
Daisy needs her carpet cleaned, bad. Unless she waxes, of course. Then let’s just say she needs her pearl polished (thank you, Mà3).
Look, we can dust her knickknacks and worry about her floors later, right now Daisy needs to get laid.
Some people have no priorities, you may as well have her get her cat bathed for all the good that will do
Don’t feel bad, thinking “straight” isn’t exactly Daisy’s strong suit, either.
Yay another MA3 reader!
Dammit Daisy, why don’t you please just go to a lesbian bar or something? Not everyone wants to talk to you about your search for a girlfriend.
Also, it totally looks like Dorothy is fondling herself in in the 5th panel. Just saying.
I think that would be disastrous. Daisy’s giving off serious roofie colada vibes.
How bad could it be? As Robbie Z. said, “There’s no success like failure.”
Of course, he immediately followed-up with, “and failure’s no success at all.”
It makes more sense with the second part.
She probably is, as a visual aid for Billie. Of all the times for Daisy to be looking away…
I think your count is off. Panel four is where she goes all scary-face. (I thought constipated, not pleasuring.) Panel five is where she’s head-desking and groping her hair. Unless THAT is her pleasuring herself.
No, *Daisy* is the one headdesking. Dorothy’s the one that is demonstrating the chest window.
I think Daisy should get her own costume (Chest Window Included) and become Amazi-Girl’s sidekick.
Little does Daisy know that Amazi-Girl is actually Ultra-Car.
Dude, put that in spoiler tags!
If that was the case, then it wouldn’t be a chest-window, it would be a hood-vent.
The implications of that when in the guise of a human are…
The ZR1 has a hood window that isn’t a vent:
…so mebbe not so messy?
Not really. Optimus Prime has a chest window.
But were her bones rendered super-dense in a lab accident?
She’s a lesbian as a primary character trait.
That and some pale skin would give her bat-family powers!
She also needs to have nailed a cop-turned-conspiracy-nut.
I would say her primary trait is sexual frustration. I…. don’t think this is how all lesbians act.
Stop being creepy, Daisy! Really! PLEASE!
Dang Daisy. Just use the internet like the rest of the college nerds. (she’s name dropping chest windows, no way she’s not one of ours)
Panel 4 Daisy: Coming to a gravatar near you.
ah, that face is priceless!
Anyone think Dorothy is a comic book fan?
Bet she cosplays as Power Girl!
i would’ve bet on uatu.
panel 5 Dorothy is definitely groping herself, and that’s better than Daisy’s lust for chest windows. i love how Daisy can keep her mind on her personal time. i mean the paper, yeah…
See, when I hear about heroes with “Chest Windows”, my first thought is Optimus Prime. Is this actually accepted lingo amongst cape comic fans?
My first thought similarly was “Does she assume the vigilante is a Transformer?” … and considering that most I know about Transformers is what I’ve learned from Willis’ other comic, that means … uh … I guess that means something. Dunno what. That I also read his other comic, probably.
Daisy is quickly becoming my fav character in the story. ^_^
Daisy should know that if Amazi-Girl had a chest window, then, as Power Girl herself has pointed out, the mask would be completely unnecessary.
Daisy it’s called a boob window. Honestly, kids today…
She’s being gender-neutral.
Come on now.
Its a PAPER, not a freaking PERSONAL DATING AD. Jeez. -_-
Or smutty magazine. Then again, even health fitness mags have borderline pornography on their cover these days.
Daisy’s getting a bit desperate.
yes because she’s only worried about the front page splash image. that is the only reason she wanted the chest window *shifty eyes*
Dorothy needs to flash her to shut her up.
…on second thought, it’s a pain in the ass to flash someone in a flannel. Billie should flash her.
Or maybe kiss her – worked with Ruth… or was that the other way around?
I jus love the “dat ass” face in panel 4. That’s awesome.
That’s exactly what I thought when I saw panel 4. I expected more comments about it.
Power-Girl’s costume looks awesome hot when a big muscle-bound jockboy is wearing it. So I guess I’ll have to give Daisy a pass on this one. Chest Windows are awesome.
I think he’s talking about Power Boy, a short-lived Teen Titans, who seems… I dunno, inspired by Power Girl or something. He wore a black version of her costume with the boob hole (and he had a hairy chest). Why he dressed like her… I have no idea. But considering he was also Supergirl’s super-stalker, his decision making process was always suspect.
Okay, that is pretty hot. I was picturing her costume on a dude. I don’t think a crotchial region that small could ever look good on a guy.
Actually, at Comic Con in 2008, I saw a very impressive drag queen dressed up as Power Girl too. You wouldn’t have guessed it was a man… until you saw their face properly. They had to be at least 40.
There’s a difference between someone in drag and a dude. When they’re in drag, they’re trying to disguise the fact that they’re a dude. I don’t doubt that they can pull it off well when pretending to be female.
No way it would work when still quite visibly a man, I think.
disguise or not, it would be difficult for a guy to hide his nethers wearing a power girl costume.
Well considering guys can.. tuck in and vaguely look female ala Silence of the Lambs, it’s not *that* hard.
This is just like modern journalism!
That sad thing is, that’s a pretty accurate statement.
And the avatar makes it even better.
Actually, that reminds me how a chest window on Captain Liberty was eliminated from The Tick when they went from the Pilot to the actual series episodes. Guess it was too racy for Fox…
Wow Daisy… Way to send the Woman’s Right’s Movement back a few years, huh? Even Power Girl who rules the chest window, would say that was a tacky thing to ask.
How exactly did she get this job?
She slept with the previous editor?
A female editor no doubt.
I don’t think it’s any tackier than asking if the suit is skin tight on a man’s rippling pectorals or reveals erect nipples. If it clings to his shapely buttocks perhaps.
Maybe I’m missing the big picture, but what’s wrong about asking if the suit reveals a little cleavage?
i believe it was less the initial asking and more the repeated asking with that relatively creepy face in panel 4
Lord of Dance got it.
…When has ANYONE even asked a question like that about a male super-hero outside of yaoi fangirls, Porn or Joel Schumacher?
Either way, if someone where to be asking that repeatedly with a sycophantic expression of desperate lust cheesecake and beefcake while losing any sense of dignity.. that’s just as tacky.
Tacky, but not necessarily setting the feminist movement back. Girls are allowed to have libidos, too.
This. Last I checked, the feminist movement was about equal rights, not porn, lust, or the desirability of sexy funtimes.
Agreed. A woman being able to express her sexual desires openly and blatantly is hardly anti-feminist.
Of course, Daisy’s just baaaarely concealing hers behind a completely transparent facade of professional interest, so…
Exactly Willis. Its find that Daisy is a sexual being and if she feels comfortable being sexual, that’s fine and dandy. But that’s in regards to normal interaction.
But she seems to let her sexual lust affect her duties as Editor, which is for the most part a professional position.
She was completely uninterested in the vigilante story when she thought it was a boy, but now that she finds out its a girl, she was EXTREMELY excited about the story, all because she wanted to see a hot girl in a revealing costume.
Well, right. No one’s saying that her behavior is correct. It is sexist in that she’s only interested in news stories about females, so her sexism is there because of her sex drive. Which guys do. By pointing out that females are capable of the same thing, *gay* females, it’s showing equality for both genders as well as sexual orientation.
I consider what Daisy is doing as rather anti-feminist. Yes, Girl’s are allowed to have libidos and allowed to be sexual. I’m not saying they can’t be. Sex for all I say. But there is a time and a place for it, especially when you’re in charge.
Daisy seems to often use her “professional” position as Editor primarily as a tool to satisfy her libido, but running stories that she personally finds arousing.
Think about it: she ignores a story about student abuse in the dorms without giving a proper reason for it and seems dismissive of Billie until Billie offers insight about a female super-hero who Daisy hopes might be “sexy”.
She demands that her reporter Dorthy cover a story about a hot girl in a sex tape, which is rather fivolous and shallow, when compared to the mysterious vigilante on school grounds, due in large part because Daisy thought it was going to be a male vigilante.
Because she thinks the vigilante is male she refuses to give it any consideration or attention, claiming that it’s only hearsay despite numerous sightings, which includes an entire dorm hallway of students, but abruptly thinks the story has merit she discovered the vigilante is female and might be dressed up in a sexy and revealing costume.
The idea of feminism in the work place is for women to be treated as an an equal to their male companions and to be taken seriously as professionals.
Well, I don’t know about you, but seeing her emphasis primarily on stories that seem to showcase sexy girls over stories that might have deeper merit beyond sexual arousal, is hardly the sign of someone I would take seriously in the work place, unless of course the job was something like Playboy.
Daisy has at least twice now demonstrated that her decisions and interests can be primarily driven or at least over-ridden by her desire to get her rocks off with a hot girl. Other stories presented to her that don’t involve that, seem unimportant and frivolous to her.
You keep saying it’s anti-feminist (over and over), but all of your rambling evidence isn’t about feminism at all, but being a bad editor. You’ve yet to link the two ideas.
Feminism strives for womens rights and respect, especially in the workplace.
Feminists have striven for equal pay, rights for things like maternity leave, and of course equal treatment from employers.
Daisy acting a fool shows how incapable she is when holding a seat of power, and would give sexist men an example of how women are inferior to men, specifically in the workplace or when given authority.
I’d say feminism allows women to be fools in positions of power just as much as it allows men to be. And sexist men don’t need examples to make public idiots of themselves.
It’s kind of frightening that every single woman who reaches a position of power is required to be the Shining Example For All Females Everywhere, and if they have any weaknesses whatsoever, we should devour them whole. Point and deride them for being imperfect human beings like the rest of us. Why can’t they just be themselves, as a boss? Why can’t women be human beings?
I think I <3 Willis a little bit more because of this.
Yes, Daisy's actions themselves are not feminist, but the portrayal of her is. There are other females in the comic who are more balanced, less balanced and all sorts in between. The point is that men and women both have their own foibles and are capable of being sexist.
The problem with feminism is the double standard presented and that it's impossible for women to be sexist. By displaying truly human interactions, that there are females out there who aren't responsible with their power but not saying that ALL females are, this is a very forward thinking comic.
I don’t know if it’s anti-feminist. She seems absolutely pathetic here. If it were a male character, he would seem absolutely pathetic here. Both would be considered unprofessional. Oh hey, there you go. It’s equal.
When has anyone asked about arousing male costumes outside of people sexually attracted to males? Oh, gee I don’t know. That’s a tough question.
Honestly, I don’t see why yaoi fangirls are less legitimate than anyone who enjoys a good moment of eroticism between Harley and Poison Ivy, but whatevs.
I don’t know if tacky is the word I’d use to describe this still, but I will say that just about anything shines in this light when asked repeatedly using the creepiest tones and expressions possible. Substitute the text with her asking if she has a battlecry for example. It’s the not question itself that’s unflattering, it’s the way in which it was asked. “You gonna use that spoon? Are. You. Gonna. Use. That. Spoon?”
Yep. That’s still pretty unnerving. Why does she want my spoon so bad?
As far as “Journalistic Integrity” goes, I can’t say this seems like odd behavior even by real newspaper standards, and as a college paper they’re not really that. You’re kind of holding her to a higher standard than her position warrants.
It’s really more of a “Journalism Club” than anything else. They put together some mock papers of questionable integrity that next to no one reads and they get to put it on their resume as an extra-curricular later when they enter the work force. Others seem to be handling the issue of whether or not this is anti-feminist better than I could, so I’ll leave that to them, but even if you could make a solid case that this is anti-feminist, it’s still a stretch to say it’s setting back the women’s rights movement to a measurable degree. It just doesn’t have enough of a readership or respectability to do that.
Using the powers of Photoshop, I modified this picture of Amazi-Girl so she will have a chest-window.
Take Two, I forgot to save after adding the final touches.
Less than two hours. You people are MACHINES.
No, I am a USER! ^_^
Much better. First one kinda looked like grandma boobs.
Nice work, but shouldn’t the cutout be the other way around? With that shape, there is a good chance for nipple flash. Not that that would be a bad thing, mind you.
It’s in the shape of an A for her costume symbol.
The A shape is exactly what I was aiming for when I edited it.
I only wish I had the talent to draw from scratch.
Ah, okay, I didn’t make that connection. I stand behind the nipple flash statement, however.
Nipple Flash: The ultimate WMD (weapon of mass distraction).
Daisy needs to get laid something fierce.
Laid Something Fierce would be an excellent hipster band name.
I was thinking that the band members would all be virgins but then I realised that lacked irony.
Hipster virgins – why not make it unicorns while you’re at it…
I think so too…that, or a good vibrator.
Daaamn. Someone get that woman a Hitachi and a lifetime subscription to Playboy. =X
That said, Dorothy’s expression combined with her gropetastic chest-window gesture amuses me to no end.
Power Girl’s thing isn’t a boob window.
It’s a ram-air scoop.
This chick needs an eHarmony or something. This is just sad.
I don’t think eHarmony would be the online dating service for her.
eHarmony is for everyone.
Except bisexuals, I guess. Looks like you have to pick either men or women to be looking for.
Never used it, though. It costs money!
well, you could sign up TWICE. That would cost money, but if you were absolutely determined to use eHarmony as a bisexual, you could.
I’d just use OkCupid instead.
eHarmony doesn’t allow gay couples. Their sister site, Compatible Partners, does, but that was only created once they got sued a bunch. The folks who run eHarmony are anti-gay and pro-waiting-until marriage, and since gays can’t get married in most states, that’s kind of a nonstarter.
match.com allows gay couples. Currently trying to find the tv commercial showing two guys at (I think it was) a sushi bar.
That does sound familiar, now you say it…
I was going by the fact that the main page let me pick both my own sex and the one I was looking for.
A useless feature if you only allow straight people, but I see that doing that redirects me to the other site… where the information I just filled out isn’t even pre-filled for me?
I did notice that there were zero gay success stories, even in the “diversity” section (and the fact that it exists probably would turn me off the site anyway).
Why sue them, though? There are gay-only dating sites, too. And really, I’m going to sue them for the right to let me make a profile on a gay-unfriendly dating site when I could just go to a gay-friendly one? Why would I *want* to.
Just use OkCupid. I met my ex there.
(I also got propositioned for sex by a supposedly-straight man twice my age who obviously didn’t read my profile, attempted to intimidate me through chat [Note: That doesn't work well], and called me and other gay users words unfit for printing [and the poor guy just couldn't understand why he kept getting turned down...], but ignore that.)
Wow, that’s a lot longer than I thought it was.
I ramble, and for that I apologize!
eHarmony doesn’t like gay people…
OKCupid on the other hand…
OkCupid is indeed awesome.
Oh for pete’s sake, would somebody hire that girl a hooker already?
I’m not sure a chest window would look good on Amazi-girl
Spder-car, not that’s another story
Are you so sure about that?
Bonus irony points if she’s NOT gay. She’s just trying SO HARD for attention!
That would be rather hilarious. An inverse of the gay guy trying so hard to hide the fact that they are gay, that they over do the heterosexual behavior.
I dunno if I believe Billie not knowing what a chest window is. I mean she is a cheerleader, and cheerleader costumes are getting ridiculous now a days. I’d not be surprised to hear that there are some that use chest windows.
Just because you have it doesn’t mean you know what it’s called.
As a matter of facts, daisy it’s right.
It WOULD make a great front page!
Now when ever a question is asked about a girl on DOB, the first question asked must be: Did she have a chest window???
Love the 4th panel, and I did enjoy the self groping in the 5th panel. My question, Daisy is at a school with a feminist studies program, and runs the school paper. Both are known havens for lesbians. Why is she in superhorny mode? She should have no trouble getting laid.
Unless she’s already creeped out anyone who may have been interested.
Folks, Dorothy’s not groping herself. She’s making a shape with her hands over her chest to demonstrate what a chest window is.
She can’t be doing both?
Well I know everyone wants another reason for PSL but Dorothy’s sort of trying to appear as above such nonsense, so not really in this context.
I am well aware of that. I prefer to think that she is groping herself, thus making Daisy even more hot and bothered.
Dorothy is groping the space in which exists the imaginary larger boobs she wishes she had.
(She probably doesn’t really wish she had larger boobs.)
What are you talking about? Everyone wishes they had boobs as big as Power Girl’s! Even guys!
She REALLY needs to get laid
Dorothy looks very creepy in panel two. Like she wants to eat souls.
I see the foreshadowing here…
