A comic character rebus
It Girl, from The Atomics (AAA Pop, Dark Horse Comics and Image Comics)
Supergirl, from the Superman family (DC Comics)
Arizona Girl, from Wild West (Marvel Comics)
IT + S + A + GIRL
Or so we think! My wife went in for the 20 week ultrasound this morning and the results were semi-conclusive. The umbilical cord running right between the legs prevented a clear and definitive imaging of our baby-to-be's sex, but on the other hand, there wasn't a "check it out I'm totally a boy!" moment like we had with the little guy. The sonogram-operating professional in attendance said she was inclined to believe it was a girl (which my wife's maternal intuition is beginning to suggest more and more as well), and offered to check again at a future appointment. I'd put the odds at about 75%, which means that if I'm going to include three pictures of girls I should include a fourth to represent the 25% uncertainty. Preferably something androgynous with an air of mystery about it.
You guys, comics are awesome.
