During the last time jump, Francis came out to the monsters.
I’ve known Francis was gay since I created him. I later decided that he had a child, Karl… Since I wanted to bring him in I thought I should have included the bride so I created Elsa to be his ex.
I didn’t want it to be a huge deal that he was gay, so I didn’t bring it up because he wasn’t going to be in the comic but a few times a year. But since I’ve moved him and Jack to George’s building I figure they’ll be in the comic more frequently and I should let him be who he is.
For today’s comic I really wanted to make sure that the punch wasn’t that someone was gay, but Lyn’s mistake. Whether or not she was mistaken entirely or just awkwardly outed her brother is still intentionally vague. I have more comics to do so it will be addressed. I just wanted to let Francis’ decision to come out resonate for a strip.
