There was several versions of this comic in various stages in the script phase. I wanted to do several nods to things that happened in the time that George has been away but I figured that for the most part everything I wanted to mention can be better served at another point.
The one thing that I really decided that had to be paid off was the relationship between Zoey and Mini that we’ve been hinted at… that she’s been a “single mom” to him for the better part of a year. So it was important that we restated their connection as a family for going forward.
Then the Star Wars thing to remind us George is a selfish uber nerd.
