Chapter: The Invention Of Writing And The Earliest Literatures
There are two reasons why Molly is flipping Gilgamesh's gender here. First, I like drawing girls, and drawing a dude with a giant beard for eighty strips would wear really thin for me. Second, I like Molly, and I think the story of Gilgamesh will be inherently funnier with her in it.
Sidenote: I actually did research for period fashion here. Well, at least the basic cuts and styles. Color-wise, I'm just making it up, as we don't really have color pictures of that particular time period.
