I’m going to be completely honest. I never touched on the APJ and what it was again. I also never featured Phil and Katie again after this storyline. I knew Phil and that’s all I’ll say on the whole subject. This whole first storyline is rather embarrassing and I won’t touch on some of it for that reason. This is one of many, many fourth wall breaks in this comic.
Like most writers, I didn’t actually know what irony was. Synchronicity, sure. What to say about this one. Mike has moved into a proto version of his lab, this is the first real mention of Kota having powers of any kind, and the pokemon kid is me being REALLY tired of Pokemon. At this point it was a brand new property still and it was everywhere.
This is also the first appearance of my favorite character. Yip. He’s a bit abstract here but it’s him.
