Chapter 1 - Page 54: The Life and Times of Grandpa John

That whole business about Suzannah getting run over by a drunk driver… well, I worried about that. Not because I thought it was too “adult” a theme, but because I suddenly remembered about Prohibition (even though there was still a lot of bootlegging going on during that time anyway), but then I did the math, and chalked up the accident to take place in 1918, two years before Prohibition became a stateside thing. Phew, close call!
But THEN, I worried that a Model-T Ford might not have been powerful enough to kill anyone. So I looked it up, and apparently that model was capable of going at excesses of 30 mph, which I don’t doubt is fast enough for a reckless drunk driver to plow over a helpless pedestrian.
I hate having to research history.

Well, *that* was a cheap plot device! ...Oh wait. I wrote it.

I have to wonder what people thought of that "I knew somebody was in trouble" panel back in its Halloween days... since, of course, back then, I hadn't yet submitted the pages containing the subplot at the end of Chapter 1, where Ninten feels a sense of danger to someone not far off.

Wow... this Lauren character is pretty tactless, isn't she? Come to think of it, I guess in a roundabout way, it's almost a reflection of a certain other tactless "good news/bad news" scene from the MOTHER series.

Camel's back = BROKEN.
Looking over my original of this page from two/three years ago, I noticed something I had forgotten about. A faint erasure can be seen in the sky, in the panel where Marilyn is on the ground (you probably can't see it here, since this is photocopy, and a colored one at that). It's a speech balloon of Marilyn going "AcK... gAHhh..." and it's accompanied by the sound effect "twitch twitch". All I can say is: *wow*, I'm really glad I recognized the mood killer there when I did.

There's something about that river, and the trees beyond it, that make me wish I could live there.
