The facial expressions are priceless. One is pure dread, the other is fangirl ready to gush, and Monica is "WHOA! Easy on the top." LMAO
There he goes. One of God's own prototypes. A high-powered mutant of some kind never even considered for mass production. Too weird to live, and too rare to die.

I suppose it's not technically a wardrobe malfunction, if the piece of clothing in question falls off because it has been grabbed and yanked away from the wearer by an overly-enthusiastic fangirlgoblin... is it? After all, Monica's top couldn't possibly have been designed with that sort of fabric-abuse in mind!

Some alternate dialogue immediately came to mind but I had to whack myself in the nose with a newspaper for being too pervy. :twisted:

Hee. I like the offsetting in the last panel - lean forward/lean backward, dark hair/light hair, light/dark jacket, dark/light blouse, frowny/grinny...

Yes, the look of anticipation on McBride (her pupils have migrated to her glasses she's so excited) compared to the look of absolute terror on Pratt. Pratt has been briefed on the power of the Jaguar Girl while McBride is just squeeing at the Demon Shepard.

... and the way that the angle between their bodies echoes the Tsillah / Monica interaction in the panel above, which also has its own offsetting of the characters' emotional and physical leanings.

The Pablo, he is a subtle man! :)

Just when did Tsillah get to make assignments for Monica? Her statement implies Monica is working either for or with Tsillah. Now Tsillah is a laison to Monica nothing else. Laisons do not make assignments, they make requests. So it looks like the two vamps are being assigned to Monica by MIB for some reason. With everything else going on with Monica right now this is not a good idea. Fangirl gets poited and up-oh runs for the hills.
Ambush questions are fun. Watching the mental impact of them as they distort, or crumble, opinions based on faulty logic.

I figure Tsillah and Pratt & McBride were assigned to Monica as a group by Brandi. Tsillah's instructions were to introduce P & McB to Monica by 'assigning' them to her directly, with Tsillah as Monica's liason and P & McB as Mon's direct assistants. (Brandi cheats and moves several pieces at once...)

Lily was afraid of her when she only knew her as the Demon Shepherd...

I'm not sure where you get the impression that Tsillah made this assignment. She's just excited about it; that doesn't mean she's behind it.

Do you perhaps mean Lily? Suzie looks delighted beyond measure.

Tsillah is Monica's MiB liaison and Suzi and Lily's direct supervisor in MiB.

I had the exact same impression!

And Tsillah doesn't seem to mind using Monica as a counter balance either.

Is it bad I heard that in the voice of GlaDos?

I imagine the elder and more powerful characters have no trouble with it. It's those silly humans that get all worked up over the magic modesty threads.

And pity, like a naked new-born babe,
Striding the blast, or heaven's cherubins, horsed
Upon the sightless couriers of the air,
Shall blow the horrid deed in every eye,
That tears shall drown the wind.

Pratt is having a series of shocks today. She's met a guy eating something weird outside her partner's apartment house, then Brandi the Chess Master, got taken to the Library for the first time, and now is face to face with the Demon Shepherd.

All this is a lot for one poor vampire cop girl. I'm sure she can handle it, but she's probably feeling more and more over her head...
