The latest comic update. The whole canon comic can be read in the Archive.

This required a fair bit of packaging and ad research. Surprisingly, from a graphic design angle, some wrappers for long-lived popular candies haven’t actually changed all that much in the past ~90 years. The price sure has, though. Most single-serve, packaged candies were 5¢ in the 1920s.  Among them, Baby Ruth bars reigned supreme.

I was able to buy soda- including Coca-Cola- made with SUGAR! That's all you had, none of that high-fructose corn syrup garbage!

Wheeze, get off my lawn...

The lighting is great. It sets the mood so nicely.

Before it seemed like Rocky had 'silly crazy' and 'psycho crazy' (the kind that argued about pancakes vs the one that babbled philosophy while shooting at people) - seems like getting headshot by that hearse got him stuck in the latter for the time being (not that I'm complaining, mind you :P)

Your sets/locations are always so nice, I'm especially impressed with the level of detail for this one! For your backgrounds, do you use photo references at all, or do you just do it by ear?

I still say you've really captured a lost soul from the American yesteryear here. Just a vibe I get from this whole comic that I can't shake, and I love it. There's just an authenticity there from the amount of research it's clear you put into it. I'm getting a nostalgic feeling from an era I've never lived, and it's enough to make this history major fall in love with the past all over again.

The style, the humor, the face and body expressions... it always blow my mind how you're able to convey so much emotions into anthropomorphic characters! I don't think I'll ever get tired of your work!
