Comic #592

1 {scene: Berlin prison cell. We can see a woman with an orange ponytail dressed in a flight jacket and pants in the cell next to the Joneses.}
1 Monty: Don't worry, we'll get out of here, Miss...
1 Ginny: Doctor, actually. I have a Ph.D. in archaeology.
2 Monty: But... that's amazing!
2 Ginny: What's so amazing about that? Women can do anything men can!
3 Ginny: {pointing accusingly at Monty} It's sexist pigs like you that are holding back progress, and are responsible for things like Nazi policies.
4 Prof. Jones: Junior! This is no time to form romantic liaisons!
4 Monty: If you think that was forming, dad, you need to get out more.

So she's an archaeologist too! Now that's a pretty amazing coincidence...

2013-09-19 Rerun commentary: I didn't just want to introduce a female character to this theme. I wanted to introduce a strong and competent female character, not merely a damsel in distress to be rescued by the male heroes.

After all, there are hardly any strong female characters in this comic. Well, after Terry, Alvissa, Paris, Ophelia, Dame Jane freakin' Goodall, that is.
