Are we sure Vain doesn't know they're probably related? Cause that was definitely a big-brother move.

Oh, sure, I totally terrorised my little brother through the medium of paintings when we were younger.

It helped that I had no artistic talent whatsoever, such that my works were eventually classified as crimes against humanity.

Okay, I'll bite: What are we basing this on?

I know we've talked about relative likely ages in Sinfest before, but I can't recall exactly which details would have clued us in to Li'l E's age. Is it the job, or the weapons ownership maybe?

both, and then some. getting multiple jobs - mostly jobs that are common for 16 yr olds like working at mcdonalds, having multiple weapons, living by himself for years, being in the same vague age group as criminy and slick - who is somewhere between "14-22" but likely At Least 16 based on pretty much everything we've been shown since he first appeared - and then all of them being close in height and age to nique (who is/was Definitely Confirmed 16+)

this is of course excluding the college strips that are??? maybe/probably not canon? in my heart i wanna believe they are though (which extends the circle to include squig and seymour, who were close in age to slick in the college strips but were only vaguely "stone age" and "medieval age" or something back when tat used to have a character page for the actual webcomic)

I agree that Lil'E is old, possibly one of the oldest characters in the strip. But that's NOT how he's depicted, and in particular he's not depicted as 4-5 feet tall except on that one occasion when he wandered into the Reality Zone. When he stands next to Tange he's typically about half her height, and she isn't exactly old. Even when he's standing and she's sitting, she still towers over him - see www.sinfest.net/view.php?date=2017-02-15.

He doesn't age like humans do. He looks like he's about 5. It's the difference between his apparent and actual age that drives a lot of the humor. If he hadn't looked like a 5-year-old in the strip where he tried various adult jobs, where would the humor have been in that strip?

I know the males are generally depicted as shorter and younger-looking than the females, but Lil'E is an extreme case.

slick is half monique's height. criminy is half fuchsia's height.

being "half" another characters height in sinfest is literally meaningless and you know it, because in "reality" they're all the same height" ... i think the fuck not, dude
