Happy Ukrainian Independence Day/День незалежності України!

Remember what I said about real comic pages? I was telling the truth, but I couldn't let August 24 just...go by like that.

(I think Yana looks so happy not out of patriotic fervor, but because she's standing in a FIELD OF FOOD.)

I like how the colors/composition of the drawing is similar to the Ukrainian flag.

I had way too much fun with that, and I'm glad you spotted it.
Yeah, the flag (I think some variation on the current one dates back to the 1920s) is actually a shoutout to the wheatfields.)

That's really cool, I had no idea. I have to say, your knowledge concerning all things to do with this comic is really impressive.

There's a joke with "that's my good side!" as the punchline here, but it refuses to condense.

Nah, no problem. I got it ^^ I think every country has a pun about its good/bad side.
