Wonder Falls is an amalgam of several little Texas towns in North and West Texas near my home, plus my own recollections of summers visiting my Grandparents who lived on a farm near Shannon City, Iowa. See Artist Blog for more details.Top
The Last button takes you to the last comic in the 140 page comic, not the newest comic. The answer is due to basic laziness of the Codemonkeys. Since the webpages are all static, not dynamic, there is no dynamic reference to the latest update. That means that each and every page would have to be changed every time we update. When we find the "change all" button in Dreamweaver that changes all reference links in one shot, we will update the last button to function as it does on dynamic comic sites.Top
During Christmas celebrations in Comic 305, we learn that Priscilla loves Howdy Puppy. Howdy Puppy is the Texas version of Sanrio's Hello Kitty. Priscilla collects these cuddly creatures in all of its many forms. As of this moment, she has a cuddly Howdy Puppy, several pieces of Howdy Puppy clothing, a Howdy Puppy teapot, a Howdy Puppy microwave, and a Howdy Puppy blanket. Since she collects them, there will be more in the future. You can see the Howdy Puppy here.Top
Yes, in multiple ways.
A. As noted in the bottom comments on every page: "All names, characters, places, and events are fictitious and are meant to be treated as such. Any resemblance to actual persons past, present, or future is entirely coincidental. Any tongue-in-cheek reference to existing comics is purely intentional and readers are encouraged to ferret them out. If you cannot find any, you need to read more comics."
B. In Priscilla's Pearls of Common Courtesy we use 5 main sources for questions: Miss Manners, Emily Post, Dear Abby, and Caroline Hax, which we have read daily for decades. The fifth source is from old double entendre jokes from early 1900's Vaudeville. Where answers have been adapted from published media rather than common or uncommon knowledge, they are cited on the page.
C. In drawings, we use photos we have taken of Texas small towns, rose and cactus gardens, and people [primarily my wife, my daughters, and myself - especially for hands and hair]. When Parody is intended, we also use characters from comics and and movies. See Dates from Heck Vol 1 No 3 for multiple comic mashups.Top
