Comic #57

Strip #56 is based loosely off my own life. Like Nicholas, I grew up without a computer, despite being part of a generation where everyone else had one. (Even elementary school required typed reports. *dies*) My family finally got one when I was halfway through high school, but that was only because my grandpa gifted it to us. There aren’t enough characters out there with this kind of history, and the narcissistic ones tend to be rich on top of that, so having this be part of Nicholas’ character seemed like a good opportunity to do something different!

  1. I can kind of relate to your story about being without the computer. I'm totally showing my age here, but when I was growing up my family still had a black & white tv instead of a colored tv. My dad just insisted it wasn't worth the money to get a colored one like everyone else (literally) had when the old one was still working. When we finally got a colored tv I felt like we had won the lottery! I think if I had been a kid during the start of the computer age my dad would have insisted we didn't need one of those either LOL.

    Loved this week's strips as always. Have a great weekend!

    1. LOL, I can relate to the lottery feeling. That's definitely what it felt like once we got a computer. It was such a relief to no longer have to do homework at the library or on a typewriter!

      Glad you enjoyed the strips! :)

  2. I had an electric typewriter. Not a computer. My brother, the youngest of four, was the first to have a computer for school.

    1. I remember using a typewriter for elementary school. I always made heaps of mistakes on that, though, and wasted so much paper as a result! XD

    1. And I'm back. lol I don't think we had a real computer in the house until I got to high school. We had a monitor and keyboard for a while with no system on it. lol

  4. I had an electric typewriter for the longest time too. I didn't get a computer until I was in my mid-20's and it was a cast-off from someone else. Have a lovely weekend!

    1. I used to have a typewriter, too, but it was pretty difficult for me to use back in elementary school! XD

  5. I didn't have a computer growing up either, even though all my friends had them. But I had something better - a word processor (kind of halfway between a computer and a typewriter) that my parents gave me one Christmas. I used it so much and wrote so much on it. Easily my best Christmas present ever!

  6. Nice work! I had a manual typewriter, then saved up enough to by a Brother word processor. Didn't have a computer until college, but I like to think I got more writing done as a kid without the distractions.

    1. I agree, computers can be pretty distracting, especially when they're hooked up to things like the internet!
