The Big Reveal!

A long-dangling plot thread finally gets addressed, almost a year later, with this double-sized PC Weenies strip. The truth of it is, I wanted to bring Bob’s mom (Maude Weiner) back into the picture shortly after I first hinted at her appearance, but I hadn’t quite settled on her design. A few months ago, while doodling in Sketchbook Pro, I hit pay dirt with a version of Maude Weiner that I really liked, and more importantly, fit her personality.

My next obstacle to getting this story released was the book – you see, I wanted to make the story an exclusive to the inevitable PC Weenies Book 2, but life being what it is, I never had a chance to plot/work on the story outside of the regular strips I was making for the site. The only option left, if I were to ever tell the story, was to tackle it head-on and publish it on the web.

But I’ll keep quiet now, because I’m really curious as to what you think of the big reveal. Sound off in the comments below!

    Yay! Finally! I had a feeling this is where you were going with this, especially after our Twitter conversation a couple of weeks ago. I like the tech strips just fine, but I prefer the big story arcs, so it’s good to see this one picked up again. And yes, I like her design.

    I’d completely forgotten about Maude, again. Now I’m definitely more curious what the newspaper clippings and key are…

    Nice to see Mom… a rip-snortin, gun- toting Mom in a cocktail(?) dress…
