Chapter 1 - Page 59: Dumb Animal He Ain't

I apologize for making Mick a smoker. Since he stands on two legs, I kept seeing this image in my head of him leaning casually against his doghouse, and from there it's easy to see how a cigarette found its way into his mouth.
Of course, this begs the question: Where, when and how did he pick up this habit? Peer pressure from the local crows?

Well, this is it. This project has been literally years in the making, as it's been brewing in my mind since I first finished the game in 2000 (coherent scenes that I recall to this day didn't start forming until summer of 2002). At any rate, I had been putting it off and putting it off, until finally, just this last April, when I came back to this site after a long absence and discovered that Mother 3 was soon to be released. That brought back the fanboy in me, and I wasted no time in making plans for a comic series of my favorite game in the whole trilogy - Mother 1. The mysterious elements of this game, and the uncanny landscapes which remind me of my childhood, have long held me entranced. So, I present to you what has been on paper only since April, but what has been cooking up in my mind since six years earlier.
To comment on this specific page, I'd like to admit that the introductory narrative was a bad decision on my part. For future reference, the phrase "Little did they know" automatically cheese-ifies ANY piece of fiction. George and Maria needed no formal introduction - they introduce each other. I should have used a single subtitle saying "Outskirts of a rural American town, circa 1906", but I guess it's all water under the bridge now.

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

Ugh, how I hate drawing crowd scenes. Fortunately, as this page only shows a few crowd extras, I was able to get by without losing too much sanity, but... the next page...

This is one of those times when I kinda wish I had gone with the EB Zero town/area names instead of the names from MOTHER. "Holy Loly Mountain" sounds just plain silly, and doesn't convey the sense of horror and majesty that "Mt. Itoi" does.

Yeesh, that musta been one heck of a backhand the sheriff delivered, to keep George out cold ALL THE WAY to and halfway up Holy Loly Mountain.
Anyway, I love that last panel. I grabbed my copy of the MOTHER 1+2 official guidebook and illustrated the map layout of the lake section of the mountain; and that off in the distance is the mountain peak. A severely important thing will happen on that peak in the distant future...
