  1. On a more serious note… pink isn’t the only “skin” color. If you’re going into the tentacle business, try to stay away from coloring that looks like it could possibly confused with ANY human shading!

  2. Um guys? Pink is not the problem here. The last pic in this post is B&W and the middle panel is still problematic.

  5. So what if something vaguely resembles a penis? I mean, doesnt ANY sort of tentacle automatically do that by default? Is this comic marketed to FIVE YEAR OLDS? “Hey guys we gotta knock down the Eiffel Tower, some old broad was looking at it and it suddenly reminded her that penises exist”
