Here's strip 70, which I dedicate to George Lucas, who encountered problems similar to what Femme describes here with his plans to develop affordable housing on his property in Marin County.

There is more Clark and Femme could discuss about the Towers and their impact on the community, but this isn't a story about urban develpment, and I'd rather move Clark and Femme's story along. More details may crop up later, and you can always ask questions in the comments if you want more info.

Panel 3 reminds me of the movie "Star Man" with Beau Bridges. Or "E.T.". I guess if you (as an alien from outer space) can display some power of your own and can convincingly claim some intergalactic diplomat status, a lot of things can be green-lit. if not, well, "you are not human, you have no human rights." :-(

This is the first page after several that doesn't make me smile but I (still) love it for the theme and the explanations and the artwork anyway :)

Edit: Also thanks for creating a bit of... publicity for George Lucas' project! It's a shame and (sadly) adds to my current level of distrust in humanity as a whole, while I'm fully aware that it's a minor thing compared to wars and terrorism all over the place.

Glad to hear that even these non-fun strips seem to be engaging. My attempts at strip-based writing for this series (i.e., trying to end every strip with a punchline--either something fun and goofy or something emotional/thought-provoking) is proving to be a bit challenging on these more world-building and character-based discussions. There are still a number of fun bits this episode, but we'll also be getting a glimpse at some of Femme's backstory, which is a bit heavy. But--hey!--this is pretty much a fairy-tale romance developing, and fairy tales always have some heavy stuff in them. (But Dude in Distress won't have anyone cutting off their toes, throwing anyone in ovens, or turning into sea foam, so I guess DiD is more fairy tale-lite.)

Will there be more of FF's backstory?

We'll hear a bit before this episode is done.
