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.

Dark basements are always fun to draw - you don't have to add any detail to the background, just color it all black!

So here we return to George in his basement, obsessing over his notes. More fun stuff that I've had in my head for years, and now finally I've brought the image out.

The reason why Suzannah didn't vote is because women weren't allowed to vote back then. Of course, like I said before, women at a town council meeting in 1908 is kinda dicey, but I tells the story my way.

Ever since I finished EB Zero back in 2000, whenever I imagined George poring over his notes, I pictured him sitting at a scanty table in a dark, dank basement scene. It feels soooo nice to be able to put these long-time mental images on paper.
Also, I was originally going to color the mayor's over-vest red, but then when I looked at the next-to-last panel (where he's silencing Suzannah), I realized that I made him look awfully Russian, so instead, I colored his vest blue. And speaking of Suzannah, I think I may have made yet another historical oopsie here: back in those days, women had very few privileges, so what are several women doing at a TOWN COUNCIL MEETING? Of course, from the very beginning, I knew I wanted the characters to have some sort of audience with the mayor to discuss the situation with George, but originally it was supposed to be a small enclosed meeting with her, James, a FEW involved townsfolk, and the mayor; but eventually it evolved into a full-out town council meeting.
At any rate, I needed Suzannah present to be able to move the story forward. So I fudged a little.

Trying to explain some of the WHYs and HOWs of a story tends to get a little hokey and unbelievable in my case. Just bear with me and accept it as gospel: James WOULD have heard that window opening (even if he were asleep... or tending to his crops... or in town...).
I was so half-tempted to have James bark "Constant Vigilance!!!" after his "I would hear the window being opened" line :)
