This is why I relish the opportunity I gave myself by rebooting Nineteen-Ninety-Something. The original version of this strip was just stupid - you remember, where Aerosmith randomly show up on Aaron's doorstep and ask for directions? Just like that arc where Joel goes to work at the McDonald's in Russia, it was way too goofy way too early. Finding the tone of this strip was a constant struggle for me back then. I like this better, where Aaron is clearly in dreamland and everything has an excuse to be over the top.
This is also another strip where the pop culture reference seemed to go over a lot of readers' heads. Aerosmith were the musical guests on the February 17, 1990 episode of Saturday Night Live, and they guest-starred in a Wayne's World sketch where Mike Myers delivered the classic line "Aerosmith is in my breakfast nook! No way!" Honestly, it seemed like a big deal at the time. Of course Aaron's subconscious would crank it up to eleven

One thing I did enjoy about this particular strip is how the speech bubbles aren't totally jam-packed with words. I know it's often to build up to the punchline depending on the gag in mind, but it sometimes feels easier to enjoy a comic strip when it isn't so dialogue-heavy.
Oh, and now I've got that song stuck in my head. Thanks a lot

I actually prefer this version better, it's really cool to see all those musicians in your art style. Since it looks like Joel won't be going to Russia this time, I will kind of miss the Olga character from that story arc. She had a good design and a fun backstory.
