So obviously this was an Occupy Wall Street story. The moment was playing out in realtime while I drew it, and I had a few objectives for it without knowing how things would go. Reflecting on Occupy in 2011, it was many things that I think this story captured: a community, an unfocused and leaderless idea, a failure, a beginning, do-gooder tourism, a line in the sand to cross. We see echoes of it today; much of this generation describes Occupy as their awakening to activism, a place they cut their teeth. But we can also see how it was destined to go. At the heart though, we have a story about OP's cast giving serious thought to the future.
