If you think about it, their situation really hasn't improved.

I don't know if this comic technically passes the Bechdel Test or not. Technically the two women are both named and they're having a conversation between themselves. But, Shaft is mentioned, at least in the "royal we" sense, and he's an active part of this plotline. It's a grey area, at least.
 
    

When evil spreads across the land, and darkness rises and the monsters roam. When the creatures of the night make beautiful music, and the things that go bump in the night go bump with greater enthusiasm. When the world is in peril and is in need of a hero...

These guys are, sadly, the best the world can hope for. These are the adventures of the heroes of CVRPG. They mean well, they try hard, and occasionally they do the impossible...

They actually do something heroic.
