It is Transmission... twenty five years ago!

NOTICE: For the sake of my sanity and to help me cope with my workload this spring, I am scaling back updates of Transmission to just one comic strip a week, every Friday, until further notice. Thank you for your patience ^^

A dip back into the old childhood days, huh? This should be interesting :)

I remember you drew a piece of the twins bullying Trevor when he was really little. Are we going to...see something like that here? About how far apart are they in age?

Let's see. They werwere 31 in the present and we lost 25 years in 1992. So they're 6.

The twins' birthday is September 30th 1985 so they'll be six, going on seven as the arc progresses. At the point of this particular comic, Trevor has yet to be born.

Ah, I see. So that means Trevor is younger than me! (1992 was the year I was born :D)

That makes two pretty important characters in this strip-Trevor and Jason-who I am older than. Thank you for making me feel like an old-timer :D

To be specific Trevor was born in November 1992, and Jason in early 1997 ;)

I wonder if their mother is pregnant with Trevor at this time.

How will the twins react to Trevor's birth? Hopefully good.

OOOH! Love the nostalgia trip, thanks Mark. :-)

Also, that's fair enough about reducing your comic work load. :-)

Awwww! little Russ and Reg! This is certainly going to be a cute story :-D
FoKI 10th Mar 2017, 12:12 AM edit delete reply
Ooooooo. The 1990's. Will we see all of the 1992 in this arch, or will we be seeing present Twins get used to life 1992 style.

Ah, the 90's. Start of the Simpsons Era and Very Dirty Rap from peeps like Snoop Dogg to whatever else happened by then. So are they 6 in this story?
FreyFox 10th Mar 2017, 8:10 PM edit delete reply
6 going on 7.

Russ and Reggie look cute as kids!

Also, did you know that Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas took place in 1992?
FreyFox 10th Mar 2017, 8:10 PM edit delete reply
Yes, I got the game when it was new ^^. Loved it.

So is this story arc going to take place completely in 1992?

Feels like a Prequel series, and same thing I used to do for Saturday morning cartoons.

Call it a prequel story arc if you will ;)

IF it wasn't for the name...for a minute i thought the happy married couple ALREADY HAD TWINS lol

Strange how none of Linda's ferret DNA got in though XD
FeigeRoman 12th Mar 2017, 10:54 PM edit delete reply
That, and she's seemingly turned into a squirrel in the first panel! :P
karmakat 13th Mar 2017, 9:19 AM edit delete reply
the squirrel DNA AND CRAZY MECHANIC roared through the finish line? lol

They are SO cute as kids! :D Oooh! Double Dare!!! I freaking LOVED that show! I even have the NES cartridge of it somewhere...

I was actually born in the 80's, but I'm a big fan of the 90's as well. :)

Once a week is great! I'm just glad I didn't stumble upon another AWESOME comic where the author moved on years ago...
FreyFox 13th Mar 2017, 11:06 AM edit delete reply
I was born in the 1980s myself, though my memories of 1992 are hazy. I remember it being the year I started primary school. And I'm definitely committed to seeing this comic series through. I'll be damned if I do a Closet Coon XD.
LongTom 15th Mar 2017, 1:30 AM edit delete reply
Truth be told, the problem with Closet Coon was that the storyline was too contrived.

Awww!! The twins look adorable. They must have had pretty squeaky squirrel-like voices back then. XD

The 90s are one of my favorite decades of the 20th century. I hope to see many beloved icons and artifacts of the decade during this story arc.

And Mark. I hope things will be better for you with your workload and that this new change in schedule for Transmission will give you the free time you need. Don't stress yourself, my friend. :)
