The "work" issue being when Storm says it's real Ben is willing to just drop it there, implying he doesn't consider someone's hair (and by extension appearances) important. Storm clearly does.

And while I realize, having read the other comments in this thread that it is a problem that effects African-American women, not being one and not knowing many (not in the US) it read to me as more of a case of psychotic vanity from Storm.

The scene didn't really carry over that is was a common problem for a whole culture/subculture, just a problem for Storm.

I realize now it is a problem for man black women and I endorse any and all ridicule of idiots who grab their hair or just arbitrarily assume it's fake but that's because of the commentary here, not because of the comic.

Based on this thread, I guess that would require a separate comic.

Possibly, but personally if I'd have written it I would have let her walk in on someone saying she was an example of a general trend, then let her challenge them and question why they think it's their business.

Or have the comment be rewritten to say it's a rather personal thing to question a woman's hair etc. Something to make it read like it was all about Storm and more about a general attitude.
