  1. Every time I read these comics they make me wish I could create comics this cute and funny and true to life.

  2. Okay, so I know I edited this and I know I’ve seen this for days and I know I’ve talked to you about this comic and how much I love it, Anna. But I just want to say here, in public, that you are a genius and “She’s got everything. Even a burrito.” is legit my favorite line in all of your comics to date, and that’s saying something because you’ve got a lot of brilliant lines. Okay that is all.

    • Is that what every queer(into women) want, a girl holding a burrito? Because, I know that’s what I look for. lol

    • All of this over and over again like a cd skipping (remember cd’s?) but in a super good way, not in that “oh my god why can’t I just listen to my 40 year old Tori Amos mix cd and cry without Crucify skipping the whole way through way.”

  3. before i even click on a GB cartoon, i know i’m about to laugh, have my heart warmed, and think about something queer in a new and interesting way. These are so good, Anna! You’re like the Bill Watterson of queer comics.

  4. who needs a cute dog on a leash, today I learned I can just be a gal about town with my burrito.

    thank you for the laughs, the heart-warming and the practical queer life tips.

  5. This is my method of flirting, with more awkward questions, except it doesn’t work for me as well. Also, how is it possible to be jealous of a cartoon character’s fashion sense?

  6. I’ve been feeling the same way scout does whenever I go to my painting class. There is this ridiculously cute girl that makes me so nervous. I really want to talk to her but what if I can’t even form a sentence. Cause just look at her makes my stomach go on a roller coaster.

      • Believe me I will try!!! I also have had two dreams about going on a date with her. So by the end of the term I want to ask her to coffee (which was one of my dreams). She takes my breath away!

  7. This is just so funny and well-written, i could practically hear the characters’ voices while reading it! Your art style is adorable to boot.

  8. I relate so much to this comic. Flirting is hella hard sometimes. I also really want a Boy Princess t-shirt now :)

  9. I’m sweating a little right now just thinking about how bad I am at flirting…
    I would move into a house with Scout.

  10. Any time I have ever tried to flirt I have been Scout. Except without the success. Flirting is weeeiiiird, man.

  11. These comics literally ALWAYS make me smile. So wonderful and heartwarming and relatable. I really wish I knew Andy and Scout in real life.

  12. If there is one thing I have learned in my 29 spins on this big blue marble, it’s that if they like you, you could say some weird-ass shit and they’re just gonna think it’s cute.

    This is a joy, as always.

  13. I relate so bad to Scout, especially when talking to the cute girl in my writing class…I literally don’t know how to flirt. Like at all.

  14. “I almost told her about my fear of ants” BWAHHHHH!!!!!!!!! I cracked up out loud on this one!!!!
