Very cool to see aLp getting some more great press, and in an English mag, no less (especially considering that England has been my adopted country for the past six years)! But there was one thing I wondered about when reading the article - Corinna is a *midget*? I mean, I know she's small next to Preston and all, but what human woman wouldn't be?

So now I'm wondering, did the writer of the article just make that assumption, given her height in relation to Preston, or is Corinna *really* a midget? If so, I've obviously missed a chapter somewhere!


(Mild, Possibly Unrequired Disclaimer: Please excuse if this belonged in the "Aliens and Predators" section, but that seems to be mostly about aliens and preds in general, not the comic, and this isn't about an episode, so it obviously doesn't go in the "Episode Comments". And I did search to see if anyone had already mentioned this before posting. So, um...*yeah*. :})

I haven't read the article, but I think the reference to Corinna being a midget comes from the fact that Preston refers to her as a midget a few times at the eye doctor's. He's looking at a small poster sitting on a table and, with his horrible eyesight, thinks that it's talking to him. Here's the first strip.

"...The weird flat-faced midget is talking to me..."

Actually it sounds like they didn't read the comic very carefully if they actually think Corinna's a midget.

Ah, of *course*, that must be it...the midget reference almost seemed familiar to some extent, but as it didn't ring true for Corinna, it never totally clicked. Thanks for clearing that up for me, as it does sound like the article's author didn't quite get that particular joke, and had me a bit confused there!

Just so you non-Britons know Essex is one of those places that everyone who is not from Essex makes fun of. In a good natured, friendly sort of way obviously. Their awesome taste in webcomics may go some way to change that. Nice w00t gif by the way.

Yeah, but without the inbreeding. ( Though that may possibly explain Romford )
