I never turn down a good pun. I imagine most reality travelers wish shifting were this easy. There’s been a lot of talk about reality shifting going around these days. For me, it’s hard to seperate from lucid dreaming, but maybe it’s just my lack of expertise.
In terms of the locations for this comic, I tried to pick the ones that popped up the most on search engines (listing the place rather than the “world”). Hogwarts of course represents Harry Potter. Hawkins is for Hawkins, Indiana (home of the Stranger Things crew). Wonderland, I think, needs no introduction and I’m happy to see such a classic is still a fav amongst the modern crowd. Finally, the Pink Place Apartments refers to Coraline, the world created by Neil Gaiman.
I have had to endure countless meetings in my life. Few of them productive. Everyone seems to have an agenda counter to the purpose of the meeting. Often these creatures seem to have a life of their own, a sort of bureaucratic evolution.
I’m a huge fan of puns and double meanings to words. I often wonder how much your mind would be worth. Here I split it three ways — the grey matter (the cheapest part), the intellect and the wisdom (which I feel is the most valuable). Note, the price here is for a five-year-old’s wisdom (which problem doesn’t amount to too much).
I am really dating myself with this one. I still refer to audiobooks as “books on tape”. There are few favorites I’ve read in every media. “The Girl Who Loves Tom Gordon” by Stephen King, I own in hard back, soft back and audio (I’ve actually had to buy it twice, on CD and digital).
