Both a commenter on Mark's Live Journal and my own wife said something along the lines of "hacker, what hacker?" when they read Emory's statement on the previous page. That's a reference back to page 116, where the nefarious Irving Crownover directed Liraz to look for a hacker at the corner of Fifteenth and McCurtain.
I just delivered 34 pages of script to Mark. That should keep him busy for a while. (Not 34 pages of drawn comic; 34 pages as written on the page. I'm not sure how much that will be once it's drawn; I tend to add a lot of background material and stage directions to the scripts.)
Amusingly, that was supposed to be Nineteenth and McCurtain. When the scene finally arrived I accidentally wrote the wrong street number on the sign, and we decided it was easier to just go back and change the dialogue on the earlier page to make it all match up. We do that sort of thing all the time here at Afterlife Blues, which is why there are no longer references anywhere in the story to original cast members Barney Smith, Ieyasu Tokugawa Jr., "Sledgie" Ozawa and Hank the Wonder Wiener.
Now let me just back up the Space Links Truck here: Astronaut Soichi Noguchi's Earth photography. The Geostationary Highway. The Rite of Spring on Saturn. And, the Solar Dynamics Observatory rocket takes out a sundog on launch. Is that good or bad luck?
