Behind-the-scene commentary from Greg Evans:
“A psychologist would have a field day analyzing Ann Eiffel. She takes great pleasure in dominating people. She demands total loyalty. She craves attention and being desired. She’s a flirt who likes to put men in their place. As a result, she’s a blast to write. Characters with negative traits are always far more interesting than the goodie-goodie ones.
It’s fun to speculate what a Daytona-Eiffel smack-down would look like. Eiffel is quick, small and scrappy. Daytona is a strong, tall firefighter. I have a feeling Toni would clean Ann’s clock.
When these strips ran, GoComics provided a forum for on-line readers to post comments. The strip of 11-5 is one of the most-commented LUANN strips ever.
It’s also interesting to see a replay of Ann’s previous act at Borderline Books. On 11-8, she gives Brad the same relationship advice she gave Bernice: you can do better.”
