Chapter 1 - Page 26: When Lamps Attack

Sorry about how pale the colors are and everything... up until now, I've been using the superb scanners at my university, but now that I'm home from college, my so-so standard scanner will have to do.
My winks to the 80's continue. Basically, I'm giving Ninten the sort of fandom that I was into back then (although I was 6 in 1988, whereas Ninten is supposed to be 12, so I have to take each medium's target age into account), and Garfield and ALF were just two of the things I remember the 80's for. As for the San Francisco Giants, I've never been much of a sports fans at all, but I'm really milking the Encyclopedia MOTHER for all it's worth to bring out Ninten's personality.

I've found that in the Mother 1/EB Zero universe, there's two types of fans: those who refer to the lead character as "Ninten", and those who call him "Ken" (after Saori Kumi's Mother novel). I'm of the former crowd, but in *this* particular instance I decided to go with "Ken", since it would be just plain weird for a bunch of kids who don't understand the game to be reading about someone whose name is strikingly close to "Nintendo". All the same, it was awfully weird for ME to write the story, since Ken is just a shortened version of my OWN name (Kenneth), which I generally don't like to be called.
But anyway, check out Page 2. Since the Paradise Line only has about what, six or seven destinations TOTAL, that's gotta be one tiny catalogue. Either that or they dedicated a whole page to each individual town.

Okay, so I had only been given a maximum of 16 pages to illustrate this book, and with the title page, that meant that page 15 was it. Corny lines ("they were happy; they had made a new friend") aside, it really does close things out a little too quickly to say "after Anna gave her father the medicine..." The famous author Mark Twain once said, "Don't just SAY the woman screamed: bring her out and let her scream!" This means that it's best to draw things out in the story so that it feels more natural, but here I had run out of pages, and had set up a plot exposition that was never to be shown. As a result, we never get to see Anna's father (not here, anyway; we'll see him in my comic series though).
