Description and Dialog

In a large 7-panel black and white comic from the series “Socialist Grocery,” Sebastian learns about a new dress code policy at their employee review and discusses it with coworkers.

In the top left panel, Sebastian sits down for a meeting with their supervisor at work. The supervisor has short, shaggy hair and freckles, and Sebastian has a mask, glasses, and shoulder-length wavy hair. The supervisor says “So, I’ve brought you back here to give you your review.” Sebastian replies, “Ok,” and the supervisor remarks “While we’re here though…”

The top right panel shows the supervisor facing Sebastian. Sebastian’s wavy hair and the back of their head fill the corner. The supervisor hesitantly continues, “I do have to tell you that we’ve updated the dress code…… No shirts with the collars cut wider. Because, well, you know….”

The middle left panel shows a close-up of Sebastian, who is wearing a collared work shirt and name tag. Eyes wide, Sebastian asks, “You can see people’s cleav?”

In the middle center, a dramatic close-up of the supervisor’s face fills the panel. Their eyes are narrowed and looking off to the left. They respond, “Well I wasn’t going to say it but one of us had to…”

In the middle right panel, Sebastian is sitting in front of a brick wall next to a coworker who has short hair in a bowl cut. They are both wearing the same collared work shirt with name tags and each holds a steaming mug of coffee. Sebastian has removed their mask. The coworker wonders, “Wait who’s cleav is visible though? I’m missing out.” Eyes closed, Sebastian forlornly replies “I don’t know.”

In the bottom left panel, a different coworker with shoulder-length wavy hair and bangs is speaking to Sebastian. The coworker counters “Wait I never see cleav at this job. Where is that happening?” Sebastian agrees, telling them “I have no idea. It probably happened 1 time and now it’s banned.”

In the bottom right panel, Sebastian’s face fills the panel. Sebastian reminisces to their coworker about the past: “Like how my college sent everyone an email one year saying ‘No piranhas on campus.’ Something clearly happened 1 time. Boom. Banned.”
