Grease Bats: Growth

So, no one told you life was gonna be this gay! Welcome to Grease Bats, an on-going monthly comic, created by Archie Bongiovanni!

After this week, Grease Bats will be taking a short hiatus as Archie works on illustrating their next graphic novel! If you miss the characters though, feel free to snag the PRINTED COLLECTION or keep up with Archie on Instagram and on Twitter.

In a five panel black and white comic, Ari asks Scout, now that you have your second shot, who do you want to hang out with? Scout responds, "YOU!" Ari notes that after 13 months in isolation, they probably need time apart. But Scout is scared of people, now! Ari jokes that all they've talked about is how horny they are!

In response to the joke about being horny, Scout complains that they haven't grown at all this year. Ari responds that if there's one thing the pandemic has taught them, it's that they weren't that interesting to begin with. And strangely, you know what? The LOW STAKES helps make Scout feel instantly better!
