I love this cartoon soooo much! Dig the expressions when they get a letter slapped on 'em!

oh! also, i emailed the Gatsby comic to my high school teach. Now she's showing it to every teacher she know who had taught Gatsby

Supergirl, actually. Since she had a daughter.

I agree your baby abuse comics are the BEST. So wrong, yet so right.

Slightly rearranged they spell USA in the final panel. #omgsubtlecommentaryaboutamericans?

Never had to read the Scarlet Letter in high school, but that's what I'd imagine it to be like.

I think a nice final panel would be a crowd of people looking annoyed at each other spelling something out.

I love Hester's expression in the third panel.

And that baby grew up to be Superman.

That's okay, we'll just say it's "A" for "awesome".
