Off to the Movies — Page 5

Author commentary

Veronica: My original plan for this page was to foreshadow these bullies as characters who appear later in the comic and affect the main character’s lives considerably.

It has since been rewritten to some jerkass bullies who never see Paulo again because Paulo lived in the city as a kid! They just happened to scar him for life!

The world is not full of constant coincidences, and I think at the time I was trying super hard to intertwine story elements. I find that embarrassing in retrospect. Imagine having some bullies be so hyperfixated on a five-year-old child enough to remember him later! Very silly!
