#432 – everything was a possibility

I'm not quite sure if the fake-out succeeds here, even though we alluded to a Nintendo 2 pages ago. One has to believe that Sean has a good bone in his body to make whatever Hanna's sad about right. Hanna feels a delusion here that I've since processed and feel content with - one that we all must suffer in order to make our closest, most important work. If no one else cares, the artist damn well better!

  1. The fakeout worked for me, but I'm high at the moment. Aw who am I kidding, I'm high all the time.

  2. Can we set the record straight here?

    Is it pronounced Puh-JET Sean, or Puh-GET Sean?

    My brain reads it as Puh-jet, cause it sounds like Pudgy and that just sounds funnier.

    1. I think it’s a play on Puget Sound. So like how that is pronounced more puh-jet

    2. It's PEW-jet. Puget Sound is the body of water on which Seattle sits.

    3. In my brain I’ve always pronounced it as “Pungent”

  3. The fake-out totally works.

    Was Sean's character ever meant to imbue any specific traits connected to the Pacific Northwest?

    1. When Sean was first introduced, Hanna said he'd single-handedly brought back the grunge look. http://www.octopuspie.com/2008-04-25/137-souffle/ And indeed his whole look in that strip is very Seattle/Portland.

  4. This page really fucked me up the first time I read it.
