When my mom saw this comic, she complained that it was unrealistic for Chapel to be watching Netflix in her room in the last panel. My mom: “Chapel’s mother would NEVER let her do that!” My response: “Chapel’s mother says, ‘Chapel, you can watch Netflix in your room for the sake of the punchline.’”

On another note, have these comics made you want to have a penpal? Me, too! How about WE be penpals? You can write me an old-fashioned letter at PO Box 7271, San Carlos, CA 94070. And you’ll probably* get an original drawing in response!

*By “probably,” I mean “absolutely, I am not above buying friendship with drawings, I am starved for attention and am going to die alone.”
I remember when I wrote you a letter a couple years ago :) I still (of course) have the art you drew of my comic book character Modge Podge. Perhaps I'll send another letter...

I would LOVE another letter from you! I've still saved it in my room.

Umm... Are we now having a three-way face-off between American, Italian AND French culture?
BobbleHead 5/31/14
When did it become about French culture?
Harrison 5/31/14
I don't know.
 Emma  6/1/14
I don't think so?
 Emma  6/1/14
You serious about the pen pal Miss Emma?

Well it has been awhile since I hand written a letter. For you Miss Emma, I'll do so.

Still, I feel that glamor is fleeting, and reality is far better and last much longer.
Dr. Taxil Necrobane 5/31/14
Yes, I'm serious. I'm excited to read your letter!
 Emma  6/1/14
Aha, you read my mind! They absolutely have made me want to have a penpal. Expect a letter in the not-too-distant future.
Harrison 5/31/14
I'm very excited to see it!
 Emma  6/1/14
I'm very excited to read your reply!
Harrison 6/2/14
Yep. Gotta have that "easy glamour, Chapel! ^^
Miss L.S.P 5/31/14
Ha ha, definitely.

I really enjoy the contrast between the simple drawing style of the first three panels to the last, very detailed one. It certainly brings out the differences in the two cultures!
Tom 5/30/14
Maybe-but one other contrast that has been utilized in the last few pages is the cultural level of what is shown. Who is to say French teenagers don't laze around like that, have weird (or awesome!) obsessions, and eat in bed? Who's to say-ultimately, unquestioningly-that French culture is inherently "better" than American culture?
That's just Chapel's perception. She thinks Italian culture is more "elevated" than American culture, when that's obviously not true.
 Emma  6/1/14
Thank you! The more simplistic style is what Chapel's imagining.
 Emma  6/1/14
Very true!
MarcTheObserver 5/30/14
Thank you!

He’s got a lot on his plate lately: planning the League’s famous Decennial party, struggling with modern technology, and hiding his embarrassing addiction to the Twilight movies. Times New Roman is confident he can keep everything under control…but what’s an old font to do when a young boy named Louis Pepping accidentally stumbles onto the secrets of the League? Find out every Wednesday!
