Original note - May 09, 2008
Writing dialog of THE FUTURE is kind of hard when you don't expect it to be. I kept wanting to have Ichabod and Sophia talk about "phones" in this page, even though a wall-mounted video communication device clearly ISN'T a phone. On the other hand, I didn't want to make up some futuristic-sounding slang word because those never sound realistic (I remember a classic Battlestar Galactica where Starbuck used the word "turboshower" as a verb)

...speaking of Sophia, part of the humor in her last line will be lost on people other than myself who realize that she doesn't look any older than Avatar. Video screens aren't good for communicating that a character is a short little squirt. I'd hoped that the message would come across just through the fact that she LOOKS like a little girl, but let's face it, every character I've ever drawn looks twelve...

(Historical note: MAN it took a while to properly address this)

Oh, by the way, this page REALLY should have shown just what the heck Ichabod's room looks like. Aside from the fact that there's a screen on one of the walls, I mean...

(Historical note: fortunately, THIS was addressed a lot sooner)
