It's been almost two years since we saw a picture of Lyn and Jack's mom
. That is also the strip that led to Jack growing his beard.
The comic hasn't talked too often about what happened to her, but there was the conversation between Lyn and Meela that vaguely mentions it
She died in childbirth with Jack so this is the first time he's seen her outside of home movies and photographs.
This strip also alludes to George's dad. Who we haven't had much in the comic about either... but someone I've known about since very early in the strip's life and had shape George's character over the years. There'll be more about him later on.... this just felt like a good place to bring it up.
