I love Meg, but I have never seen an adaptation of Little Women that ever makes Mr. Brooke look like a good choice for her. And while he’s wall paper paste bland in the first section of the book itself, he get downright condescending in the second half.
Shout out to the straight lady who was so offended the first time I posted these comics that she messaged me to make sure I knew that Gals could be Pals. I hope she sees these and has to consider the homoerotic implications of the Bronte Sisters work all over again.
A small announcement, Bagels and Coffee is now on tapas! The comic will still be posted here, but if Tapas is your preferred method of comic reading you can check it out here.
And always, if you like the comic, support it on Patreon!
One thing I love about Jane Eyre verses other Victorian literature is that while most of this era’s protagonists suffer their put upon orphaned state with saintly grace, Jane will have none of that. She’s ready to throw down at the drop of a hat. No parent, no problem, she’s got fists.
