"I didn’t want this King of Queens thing where you have a couple of slobs inexplicably married to gorgeous women. I wanted everyone to look sort of the way I conceive of people—basically attractive but with their sadness, joy, and ambition subtly incorporated into their appearance." -- Mark Russell

Well, someone's read their Jared Diamond, I guess.

Also, for a moment I thought that the cover was depicting Hunter Betty ripping off Gatherer Wilma's dress. Eyebrows were raised, my friends. Eyebrows were raised.

Well that was kind of dark...

So what I'm getting is that Wilma was betrothed to a ma. Wilma didn't take that well, and ran away from home. Her mom was happy and let her go because it would have been a better life.

I guess we're supposed to think Fred can provide a better life for her than that goat herder.

Even though goat herder looks enough like Fred in that first panel that I went, "Well, that's definitely not a dynamic present in King of Queens."

It's a life as a free person who can choose for herself who to marry, rather than be sold off as as a possession, and to Wilma's mother, and most people, that would be eminently preferable.

This feels like foreplay to the writer going totally wild and straight up advocating for socialism using the Flintstones as a vehicle.

It has been like this since issue #1, really.

Pretty much. He isn't even hiding it.

I wait with eager expectation for the moment when he takes the limiters off and goes truly  FULL ☭ COMMUNISM !
