@BRIGUY:It's just that they were so happy in the flash back of the last panel, I didn't think she'd leave either of them, I thought perhaps she got hit by a Bus or something.
Interesting to note the father(?)'s facial hair. It looks like the something bad happened theory is panning out.
But mainly I want some chicken nuggets now.
Ya know, the feels? They are being felt.
I really like that Cindy's logo on the bag, I don't like washing my hands either.
Note the ring on the mother's hand at the dinner table, prominently displayed...
If the speed of light is faster then the speed of sound, is that why people always appear bright until they speak? o_O
The dad seems very sad, while Fred looks confused.
If she had died, they'd both be sad. If it was a divorce I don't think the dad would be so down, but rather putting up a strong front at least.
Also - for non-US viewers - Cindy's in a play on Wendy's, which is a well-known fast food vendor here in North America.
Both have their place and both are awesome but, damn it Katie, I love these characters.
This is really beautiful story telling, I really love how you can tell so much within the span of a few pages. Tanner's such a good friend/bro, Yay cooking with Fred time.
Oh I'm still alive and well, and it's still pretty happy. I mean, look! He's got a Happy Meal!...... wait..... WHERE'S THE SPECIAL TOY THAT CAME WITH HIS MEAL?!?! Did they forget to put it in the bag??? Oh God this story is sadder than I thought..... Poor Fred! Luckily it looks like Fred's mom went to Cindy's to straighten out this no free toy situation. All will be well soon enough! See?
P.S I think the eye lines are probably stress + the fact they're all badly fed and underweight as balls orrrr they cry a lot. Probably all 3
I still think bad thing happened to her is a possibility. We only know her absence is causing pain. Maybe she's in the hospital during this flashback? Maybe she's dead. Maybe she left them. Maybe she's sick. So many possibilities. Maybe it doesn't matter why. Whatever happened destroyed the family and left Fred alone. Poor Fred. :[
Also Wendy's is the devil and nearly killed me when I was kid, and my mom, with the worst food poisoning I've ever experienced. So maybe Cindy's killed her. :P
That will be updated 20 years from now when we release the special editions of these comics.
It was nearly two decades ago, but I've never trusted Wendy's since. It's also the only time I've completely hallucinated. It's not as fun as television and movies would have you believe.
