Military Man

I’ve been waiting to share this reveal. Initially, when I planned to bring Pam’s dad into the strip, I wanted to make him tall, athletic and buff (sorta like the guy in the first panel)- but then the idea to make him a short but feisty firecracker won me over.

So… Pam’s dad. Whatcha think?

    No idea where this storyline is going and while the storyline filler strips were probably not needed(buying time to work in this one I suspect, but that’s just me), love the reveal. Did not see that coming.

    Keep it up! :D

    like the reveal but doesn’t make much sense to me: they have kids and the dad’s doesn’t know????

      Let me clarify, Conk :)

      The clone Bob has no working knowledge or memory of Pam – he’s just a worker bee at Footle with the technical knowledge of the real Bob. Pam of course recognizes her Dad – she spotted him right away.

    I loved it…..I had the same reaction as clone Bob did then I got a really good laugh at the last panel.

    I must be a bit obtuse… I saw the last panel, and thought “Daddy brought his CO along?”
    Then I settled down to wait for the next strip to clear my question up (it always does).
    Love the development, thought.

    sorry but i still don’t make i.. what’s the surprise then in the previous strip? That does pam want to hide? (there might be a subtile meaning I don’t get for being from french…)

      In the previous strip, there’s a subtle implication on Pam’s part that Bob and her dad never really got along – hence she was surprised that Bob wants to meet her dad. “Clone Bob” has no previous knowledge of meeting Pam’s dad.
