Abúi: Well, if you insist-
Adrienne: Cultural practice! Article 315 of the Interstellar, Cross-species and Cross-cultural Coexistence Act.
Abúi: Look, I am not completely oblivious. I do notice how people have been looking at me...
Adrienne: Yeah, but you have rights. All species are entitled to culturally appropriate self-presentation.
Sikh officer: Your friend is right. You're not breaking any laws. I was just wondering if you were comfortable.
Abúi: Aw, that's sweet of you!
Adrienne starts tugging at her top, then pulls it off.
Adrienne: You know what? Fuck it. Now that I have your word for it... I'm Venusian. This is the cultural dress of Venusian Nudists. Any questions?
Sikh officer: No, everything's fine.
Adrienne: Well, in that case, I have a question.

The law Adrienne cites will be canon for any and all trips across universes that Abúi and her companions undertake in the future. Not that this means everyone in the other universes will know about it...

Articles 1-314 are all about interplanetary space, definitions of sentient life, in what situation it is OK to vaporize a planet, etcetera. All the boring stuff you need to work through before you can proceed to respecting other creatures' cultures and beliefs.

Color work by Aggie Janicot, who continues to kick ass and take names with new updates for American Gothic Daily and Hecatomb as well!

It seems her hair gets wilder with less clothing.

Did you forget about us, your fans towards this particular comic series. Especially me, due to you have brought in people of color within it, that means a lot to me personally and I have been patiently waiting for you to continue it. Dude you brought in a naturists club/resort that had people of color with it if not all of them - that was wonderful! Please continue this comic book series....
....PLEASE!

It will be back. I just don't know when. This summer has been all over the place for me.

Naturists of Colour ARE underrepresented, you have a point! I'd welcome an adventure/ horror/ sci-fi strip where the protagonists are non-textile hindered brave, smart, athletic, resourceful folks of colour. Seems this strip has a "back-door pilot" premise already running!
