I knew as soon as Mike told us that this week's twart would be Clara de Noche that my piece would feature her and her son, Pablito. Their relationship is the only one of any value in any of the Clara stories I've ever read. It's what saves the strip from being pure objectification. It brings some humanity to the character.
This was supposed to be much more involved, with a crowd of drooling jerks in the background ogling Clara, but I got laz ... er ... I felt the piece didn't need it.
