    I notice that the woman you use to symbolize law is almost always portrayed as being clever and understanding, explaining confusing parts of the law, but in this comic (which points out how flawed the law can get) she’s depicted as being just as ignorant as the others. It also fits because the law is blind to good and evil; if she’s supposed to be a representation of the law, she wouldn’t recognize the fact that the law has become flawed.

    Of course, I’m trying to apply literary analysis to a webcomic, so maybe she’s just playing the role of the ignorant to shake things up a little. :)

    • The one with the mallet? She’s the State, not the law. See if that changes your analysis. There is a reveal going on with respect to her character here, but perhaps not quite the one you’re getting at.

    no way! There is no way that the govt tells a committee to find out what is against the law. And the answer they come back with is


    And that is an acceptable result?!
