Sally Forth (11/19/10)

Some comic strips exaggerate their characters in an effort to suggest certain personality traits. Other comic strips, like Sally Forth, cast their characters in a realistic mold. That’s what makes today’s installment so unsettling. The woman in this strip resembles a real person, but she comes off as extremely unpleasant; repulsive, even. I’m particularly creeped out by the subtle horrors of panel three. Her figure and expression in that panel remind me of a toad, or the boss Kraid from the video game Metroid, or something else slimy and amphibian and better left to the imagination.
