Oooooooooohhh, you're my best friend
We saw Frank as a young fella back in 1907, and more recently in Joseph's flashback in chapter 3. Obviously Uly & Frank lost touch for a few years, but that's a story for another time.
I'm kind of tempted to use the last panel in a banner advertisement. Welp! If you see it sometime in your future web travels, you can say you saw it coming.
It's weird and cool seeing that random kid from the earlier pages being all, like, relevant now.
@LibertyCabbage: I have to agree. It's nice to finally get to draw him again. He plays a pretty important role in the future, so it's nice to at last get the ball rolling.
My what an intricate web you are weaving.
@RobotThePirate: Thanks, mate!
D'awwww. Also I love this trick when a seemingly background character suddenly shows up in the story way later! I DO THIS TOO :D
@Oly-RRR: Yes yes yes yes yes yes!!! Like with nasty old Larry!!! Some of the time I don't even like to call attention to it, it just serves for anyone who bothers to read through the comic twice :P
