Wait, metropolis existed in this setting? Is this a post-superman setting? :D

No... I wasn't going to bother explaining, but Metropolis was a manufactured city. A bunch of relatively wealthy people from coastal cities that sank decided to move inland, so they built a city.

The City of the Future! And such.

It's really not important to the story, except inasmuch as the city was largely built by rich people and was surprisingly meticulously planned.

It didn't have much in the way of skyscrapers, though. The billboard shows... just about all of them.

Jim better be going for the kiss after this. There is no other option.

Also her face in panel four, minus the dust, is so cute. I can only think of one other character I've ever seen with lips drawn like that but I'd be hoping for too much if that's where you got it from.

Don't force it, let it flow naturally. There's plenty of nudey comics out there for the people who need porn with every update.

No that's not what I was thinking of, however that does predate what I had in mind so it could easily be what I am thinking of got it from that.

So jim and Mary's town (don't remember the name) is an agricultural town supplying the major city's food, etc... just like in ' the hunger games...'

Ha ha ha ha ha ha... yes. Metropolis is just fine.

Whew. You make-a me laugh!

I have a possibly evil question to ask because of Mary's face in Panel 5. Is her brother dead? Is that why she looks so pouty? Or is it because she thinks Jim is treating her like a child?

Yes, no, yes.

I kind of figured it was because of being treated like a kid, but since we haven't found out when, or how he died, or how bad it affected Mary I thought I'd ask.
