Jen used to actually own a purse like Dirtygirl’s, made of leopard print fun fur. I always liked putting tiny details into the comic that were true to life. Though looking at it now, I don’t think it reads very well against Dirtygirl’s solid black coat. It just looks like a white purse full of holes.
Also, in the Orneryverse, the zombie apocalypse begins in an orderly fashion, with zombies walking from door to door, politely ringing the bell.
