It'd be pretty hard to take that title away from Nanase, who frequently floats around in the halls.


I'll bet that Ellen's ability to V5 anyone will become the school's worst kept secret...I'm also almost willing to bet she V5's someone on the first day of school.

What amazes me is that all the students at both schools who have supernatural abilities seem to know each other.

It would be cool for them to encounter someone else with some sort of power/ability, and for both sides to be like, "WTF?"

They could be rivals or something.

That would be what would eventually happen, of course. But at their first meeting? They can't just get along right away; that would be boring.

Wouldn't have helped me in high school though. There was only one class where my marks were sub-optimal that also had a male teacher (I slept through Grade 12 calculus) and since I'm male, the beam would most likely be a female-form beam.

And just to define sub-optimal... I slept through Grade 12 Java and still got 85 (Optimal considering the circumstances. If I was awake, I would have got 90 or 95) but I only got in the 70 area in Grade 12 english. (sub-optimal, but the teacher was female.) I did get about the same in Grade 12 history and the teacher was male, but I cared little enough about how he taught it, that I consider 75 to be optimal.

My favorite too!!! It's silly, and sorta fits the theme of comics, no? ^_^
Also, I like it just 'cause it is an allusion to the humble beginnings of EGS.

What I want to know is what surname is she going to be registered as having at school?

As far as I can tell she has no 'official' surname, 'coz why would anyone give her one? Going by the fact that she calls Dr Sciuridae 'grandpa' and has DNA from his daughter, Grace Sciuridae would be her mother. Now, some people take the surname of their mother, but it's more traditional to take the surname of the father, and she calls Mr Guyur her father (don't know what her squirrel and lespuko parents would classify as). So would her name be Grace Guyur?

...Interesting point. Perhaps, especially since she was so confused when Sarah called her Ms. Sciuridae. Then again, Mr. Verres is setting up her registration and all that, so he might've given her the name Sciuridae (or he might've given her the name Verres, who knows?)

...Grace Verres. Yes. She is given that as her name. *huggles pet theory*

Mr. Verres is doing the registration and Mr. Verres doesn't know about Mr. Guyur. She might be Grace Verres but that would be a tad strange as people might think that Ted and Grace were related and disapprove of their relationship (although, since they go to different schools, it is unlikely people would find out).

And they're different ethnicities, so it's unlikely people will buy it (thinking Grace is either adopted or somehow already married).



As a side-note, EGS is actually one of the more ethnically diverse comics I know (Grace + Greg + Dr Sciuridae are black, Tedd and Nanase are half-asian), not bad for a small town. Oddly enough, even among comics by non-white writers there tends to be less mix of ethnicities amoung larger casts (seriously, one question that has often wracked my brain is why Fred Perry, noted maker of long-term comic Gold Digger with a major cast of several dozen, has about two major black characters in it, three if you count the were-cheetah who's black under her fur [werecheetahs being from Africa and all]. And the half-werecheetah? Oddly not black! Ian of RPG world, also black? The dark-tanned Cherry's about the closest to a black character in the entire comic. I just don't get it).

So anyway, Dan does a good job in that department to finish my little tangent.

As practically everyone else says, I think that she would go as Grace, because it's no longer nessecary to hide from Damien and her bros. The idea that she might be mistaken for the old Grace is interesting, but do they really look the same? I find the idea that her human form looks exatly like that of the old Grace intreguing but unlikly.

I agree its quite predictable that she will go as grace. As for the last name, I think she'll use Sciuridae, since he is technically her only human bloodline.

As a little side note, I'm relieved for Grace that she learned then connection of nudity and sex before she went to school, because this little factor would have caused a fairly intresting problem when she started attending...

Her full legal name will probably be something along the lines of "Grace Guyur Sciuridae", AKA "Grace G. Sciuridae". I say "probably" because I don't want to commit to it any earlier than I have to.

Never say "Mr. Verres doesn't know about..." He's a conspiracy agent, so he knows a lot. In particular, he was assigned to extract Grace and her brothers, with assistance from Dr. Sciuridae, so he probably knew everything about the project, including Mr. Guyur.

Hey Dan, I saw this and started to wonder about the first panel, so I googled "sciuridae" and suddenly it became clear.

Am I the world's slowest bunny or what?

Actually, we do know that she looks like the orignal Grace. Of course, because she only shares DNA from the original Grace, she may look slightly different because of pimples, beauty marks, etc which are not due to DNA. But the original Grace, as we can see from the picture, did not have any large beauty marks in places that people can see, making it unlikely that anyone would remember the location or existance of them. So, for all practical purposes, they look alike.

Just to clarify, they do not look _completely_ alike because of Grace's antennae. But they won't be shown in school anyway.
