Phoebe and Her Unicorn by Dana Simpson for January 07, 2017
Phoebe: Hey, Dakota. Dakota: Hey, Phoebe. Wasn't I great? Phoebe: Why'd you invite us, anyway? Dakota: I knew you'd understand that being in a goblin opera makes me cooler. My popular, cool friends wouldn't understand that, so I had to turn to you. Phoebe: If I'm so lame, why do you even care what I think? Dakota: We need uncool kids' approval, too. It's called democracy.

Didn’t Marigold have a bow on her tail earlier?

I’ve recently been wondering if it’s possible Phoebe and Dakota will become an official couple.
I mean, Dana is very supportive of the LGBT+ community, being trans herself, so it wouldn’t be TOO farfetched.

Spell democracy, Dakota.

They can be friends and still not be sexually attracted and at nine it shouldn’t be considered.

Did you notice that the artwork on Panel #2 and Panel #4 are exactly identical?

At this rate, Dana, you might as well give Dakota Blaartholomew’s baby…there are cases of grade/middle school pregnancies in India, so it’s a possibility…

Pretty sure it is an insecurity issue.

Democracy? HA! Don’t you mean Plutocracy?

Somewhere, in a nearby alternate universe, this strip is titled ‘Dakota and Her Goblins’ — with Phoebe & Marigold appearing only as occasional side characters. ^^:

Yeah, I THOUGHT that was going to be Dakota’s motivations for all of this…

Called it yesterday, sort-of. This may be as political as this strip gets.

Actually, without the uncool kids adoration, the cool kids are nothing but jerks.

One slight weakness of O&M was that we didn’t see many signs of Felicia’s popularity. It’s a little more credible with Dakota.
