Does anybody else miss the April tomfoolery?

Anyway, Sarah doesn't look that bad as a squirrel-girl, but she'd probably be cuter if she wasn't as angry. I definitely wouldn't want to get in an argument with her when she has those claws. Her fur tone is also a bit too close to her shirt for my taste. In color they'd probably be easily distinguishable, but in gray-scale it looks a bit lazy. It also has a bit of a weird effect in the third panel.

Yes. I'm generally not amused by the ones that actually try to trick people, but ones that use it as an excuse for goofing around... well, there's a reason I liked the Oblivious Wand Waving arc :D

I think that with the exception of hair, she makes a cooler-looking squirrel-girl than Grace. I also like that method of suggesting fur - it looks more "ankylosaur" than "squirrel", but I like it :smug:

Hm, why isn't Sarah's fur the same color as her hair? Or anything other than her shirt? I don't think I've noticed that before...

I dunno. I assume that, like Grace, her head-hair is a darker shade. Which means she's damn near albino...

I remember that comic more from various strip slays than from the original archives!
But yeah, I kinda miss AF weeks as well. As I always tend to say: EGS needs such mayhem from time to time.

Yeah, I do like the April Fools comics. I even like the ones that LIE, preferably creating as much controversy as possible. It's fun to laugh at the April fools on the boards who forgot what day it was. :lol:

I think she's cute, angry or not.

Dan, you've a little over four months to plan how to pull the wool over our eyes for next year's April Fools :D
