Everybody Look What's Goin' Down by jbwarner86 Everybody Look What's Goin' Down by jbwarner86
After I shared my most recent drawing of Denise, I mentioned offhand that I had once briefly considered doing an AU project for Nineteen-Ninety-Something that was set in the 1960s. I make so many allusions to the '60s in the strip anyway, and the '90s alternative rock scene owes a lot to the '60s counterculture mentality of "screw the establishment, let's do our own thing". Now that I'd thought about it again, it was too intriguing to ignore this time.

So I drew up what the gang might look like if they lived in the Haight-Ashbury district circa 1967. Not gonna lie, this was a lot of fun to conceive :) I don't expect this to actually become a comic series (since I have way too damn many of those as it is), but I do think I'll come back to this concept one way or another in the future!

I'm digging Lindsay's look. Hope to see more of her in that style!

would that mean in this alternate universe, Kendra would be creating a comic of what she thought the far future of the 1990s would look like?

Perhaps you could do several different eras, just imagining them in those time periods.  That could be fun. :D

Having lived through this this period of history, all I can say is it’s over, thank God!

I could definitely see this as a dream-sequence by one of the characters.

Steve looks like Ace from One Piece, minus the buff body and tattoos XD

Joel: Don't mind me, I just wandered in through The Doors.
Although Jocelyn lacks repeated hair-dyeing and tattoos, she's probably smoking something a lot harder then the weed the 90s version has.
Now where did the hacker-girl get a bun hat at that time of the season?
I look at Lindsay and think she's ready to be a walk-on on a spy movie.

How about like, a dream sequence in Denise's mind?

I have a feeling Denise's dreams are way less grounded in reality :)

This would make a nice non-canon series where these characters lived in the 60s. Denise would definitely fit in!
