I try to put a lot of hidden hints and “Easter eggs” in the comic. Some of them you may have noticed, but there are a few that you probably haven’t. For example, there are some small tributes to my family that I have put in.
Agent Jack Powell – Jack is sometimes used as a nickname for John, which is what my father was called for many years. Also, Powell was my mother’s maiden name.
Nick – Nick is my brother’s name! By the way, none of these characters look or act like anyone I know, even if names are inspired by them.
Ryan Chiropractic – Petunia’s new office is in the same building as Ryan Chiropractic. I threw that in there because Ryan is my wife’s maiden name (and now ONE of her middle names :P).
There are many more, which I may outline in future posts!
