DEFINITELY GOING VERY WELL
Good thing she didn’t tear the whole shirt off.
Now I’m imagining that SEMME basically just has a spool of yellow masking tape that they make everybody put on their regular shirts. Which would explain the diversity of clothing that has the stripes.
It’s paint, I’m sure. Designating the “tear shirt here strip.”
I don’t know why you’d think she didn’t. She’s blocking the remains of the shirt from our view and IIRC, was not seen in the story again until she had time to change.
“AH REJECT YOUR SYMBOL OF INSANITY AND SUBSTITUTE MAH OWN SYMBOL OF UTTER RATIONALITY: PUBLIC TOPLESSNESS.”
You can actually spot the upper part of her shirt in the last panel, which also conveniently covers her boobs.
It does seem like there’s more shirt there in that panel than there was above the stripe in previous pictures.
Just three strips ago we can clearly see that her boobs are smack in the middle of the stripe. Some say the shirt grew three sizes that day.
The moment they have new management that actually stops and thinks carefully before taking the most drastic action in jumping head-first into Danger it immediately becomes.
“SEMME IS DEAD! “
“LONG LIVE SEMMF!”
“Hail Lindra.” Lyndra? I dunno.
Someone’s going off the deep end.

So, in panel 3, that stripe is pretty high on her shirt.
And she really needs to learn how to slam doors like a normal person.
(Jumping through windows can get expensive.)
Slamming a door is not as cool as jumping through a window. But, given the number of times she does that you’ll think they would have created a Salproof glass by now.
(spoiler) They have. Just not at SEMME.
You know, if she used a bungee rope by the last panel she’d be suspended too.
But, Sal always bounces back!
This is almost as good a resignation as the one in the opening credits of “The Prisoner”.
Joe’s gotta be happy about getting to see Sal without her stripe.
It’s over 9000!
Does the first speech balloon in panel 3 not make sense to anyone else? Is there a turn of phrase I’m missing or is “no longer” just not supposed to be there?
I mean, technically it should be “any longer”. But it’s, y’know, Sal, so…
Considering that Linda did trade her as a baby to another person: and keeping in mind that Linda was in a mental institution (how did she get a high govt. post? – oh nm, it’s SEMME), and finally that Sal hates her…
Yeah, a bit dramatic, but not totally inconceivable.
I mean, Linda isn’t exactly a saint, but Sal here is making quite the leap of logic (also, a leap from a window). “Getting me psychological aid= She’s an horrible monster” is… ridicolous.
Also, while I don’t know US laws, Linda WAS in a mental institution: doesn’t that means it’s ok for her to be in the military, since she’s officially cured?
And she’s the only person alive who fought the Martians: she’s actually the one person qualified enough to lead SEMME. Plus, you know, the whole organisation is modelled after her.
The first of many window jumps
She must read Lead Paint Comics
*Another post about how Sal and Amazi-Girl have the same character arc that I don’t get to pretend to be clever about because I had to have it spelled out for me*
“But ah bet it’s the same shit that used to fuel me.”
…Sal has Reset-Proof Memory? 😛
The way I see it, DoA!Sal is basically IW!Sal after she’s gone through all the drama of It’s Walky!. She didn’t get her adoptive parents murdered by aliens, but she went through a dark time in her life defined by pain inflicted on her by a parent, and a horrible mistake she’s defined by for the rest of her life, and came out of it. She buries her pain and puts on a mask to cope, her badass aloof rebel mask for the world, and the sickly sweet princess for her parents.
It’s why I’m confident Amber and Sal strike up some kind of friendship. Amber [i]is[/i] Sal.

I'm so excited for a webcomic that's not about being drunk and depressed!
