Guest Strip:Danielle Corsetto
Story - It like this strip as the writing kind of makes Sam and Jades friendship as natural as the Cole/Brent relationship; replacing the office/pop culture nerdery with a bar and video games with a douche with a pop collared douche hitting on you.
Like Scott said in his notes for this strip Danielle writes very well for both Sam and Jade and the difference between a male writer and female writer is shown here. I'm not saying that Scott is a bad writer with women on purpose but you can only write what you know.
It is the same thing like watching one of those female centric shows (Sex and the City, Gray's anatomy, etc) and they write the all guys as emotional wimps that can't make decisions. Sure there are guys like that but you usually don't see 3-4 in the same group of people at the same time. It is what you THINK the opposite set is/should be, not what they are.
