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!
