  1. Hitting someone is not a sign of love. This comic senses a dangerous message to young people and children that violence is ok in romantic relationships. Do better.

    • Hi, Lucy- Just a note to let you know that it certainly was not Jeff Parker’s nor my intention to condone domestic violence in our comic strip, Dustin. Our wish was only to play off of a meme that has populated comic strips for decades, but perhaps has run its course.

      I do not believe that every action a 7-year-old takes is predictive of her behavior as an adult, but I do respect your point. We heard from two other readers with concerns similar to yours and will try to be more sensitive in the future.

      We appreciate having you among our readers and hope that you will stay with us.

      All the best,

      Steve Kelley
