Here’s one of the advantages of planning far, far ahead: I can drop tidbits in here and there because, to me, the stories already exist. Tom and the Mysterious Woman in the photograph are something for later (probably Chapter 7), but knowing about them already, I can use them to illustrate a point here.
The inked, on paper version of the Mysterious Woman looked a lot like Star Maiden in Spy Gal’s clothes. So much so, that Mike DeVito at Th3rd World kindly suggested I make some changes. What she ended up looking like is my wife with freckles.
