As I was drawing this, I kind of knew the random, spur-of-the-moment porn mag in this comic was going to get a much bigger reaction than the punchline. Jeph Jacques never said anything about it, but some of the QC forumites seemed to be shocked and offended on his behalf, and possibly left afflicted with Confused Boners.
Hannelore was an intentional choice because I knew how ironic it would be, but when I see her like this, looking back on this comic does kind of give me bad feelings in my heart. Luckily, she has a semi-canonical evil clone, so maybe I’m off the hook.
In the Treading Ground universe, there’s also a gay porn mag called Shitpacked! Just an FYI.
