Somebody asked yesterday how old I’m supposed to be in these strips I’m posting right now, and I said late elementary school, maybe fifth grade. Then I realized I was dating the Wookie Vs. Ninja Turtles story in this one ’89, which seemed to be about when Ninja Turtles were starting to be a major thing, and in ’89 I would have been around second grade. Ninja Turtles really peaked around ’90 or ’91, but what can I say, I was always ahead of the times.
The memories in these last few strips take place in different times around my childhood, I’m not sure when my teachers would have thought I had ADD, but as I think about it maybe that was closer to second grade than fifth. All the memories from these few strips take place within a few years for me, and maybe I said fifth grade because second grade seemed too young for me to be obsessing over these things, but as I go over it in my head, second grade seems more accurate.
