Pitching an idea to the staff ...

In case you didn't know, Ben is quoting the last line of "Casablanca".  (For someone whose dad is named after a famous actor, Summer should know more about old movies ...)

In the second panel, Summer mentions that kids with superpowers aren't allowed to compete in school sports.  There was some effort to organize sports teams for super-kids, but power levels varied too much, plus the property damage got expensive.  A few hero-villain feuds got started on the playing fields, too, before the idea was scrapped.

On a personal note ... remember a few months back, when I mentioned that I was working on a paying job?  A friend of my sister-in-law was looking for an illustrator for a children's book, so ... take a look here.  It's available for pre-order now, will ship in a couple of weeks.  A nice gift for kids, or friends with kids, or cat lovers, or cat lovers with kids, or kids who love cats, or just about anybody who has at some time been in close proximity to a cat.

CATch you later.

Maybe that's WHY Summer doesn't know more about old movies.

Did you know that the 'friendship' line was recorded post-production?  I don't remember the reasoning behind it, but Claude Raines was off on another film so they just recorded the single line from Bogart.

Congrats on the book illustration job, Ed! Here's hoping you get many more.

Summer doesn't know Casablaca?  This must be remedied.  Also I'm surprised how much I've come to like her boss.  He seemed a bit slimy at first but he's turned out surprisingly reasonable.  His wife seems nice too.  I wonder how they wound up with such a rotten daughter.

Ben's first (notable) encounter with Summer involved[a href=http://www.webcomicsnation.com/eddurd/everydayheroes/series.php?view=single&ID=164620] vandalism and walking away with some expensive merchandise.[/a]

The second involved her learning a new four-letter word... and[a href=http://www.webcomicsnation.com/eddurd/everydayheroes/series.php?view=single&ID=176483] acting like a four-year-old with it[/a].

I imagine he's making a reasonable attempt to get over those first impressions.

P.S. I'm trying BBcode for the links.  I apologize if they come out looking like heck.
