#269: Old School, Part Two

August 15, 2008

Notes from the Manager

Related Strips: #268: Old School, Part One

For those of you not from Chicago, it's been hinted at before, with things like a Chicago Tribune in the background of a panel or an 847 area code mentioned in another strip, but this strip makes it fairly explicit: the Multiplex 10 in located in an unnamed (fictional) suburb of Chicago, on the north side.

Bronzeville and Rogers Park are (real) Chicago neighborhoods, and the Regal Theater and the Granada Theatre are — or rather were — real Chicago theaters, both designed by Edward Eichenbaum of Levy & Klein (Eichenbaum also designed the Century Theatre, formerly the Diversey, although only its façade remains standing). The Regal, in particular, was a cultural cornerstone of black Chicago for the four decades it was in business… which I'm sure James will talk about in time.

TopWebComics has the same hand-drawn sketch of Jason and Becky done for Jackson Ferrell that I posted the other day. (He had requested the two hanging out in their civilian clothes.)

I feel like a prostitute every time I write copy like this. Not that there’s anything wrong with that.
