ANNIVERSARY
SPECIAL!
“THE ORIGIN
OF JG!”
BY JOHN GARRETT
hypertransitory.com
OUR SON
WON’T PERISH
WHEN OUR
DOOMED WORLD
EXPLODES.
THIS ROCKET
WILL TAKE BABY
JG TO A
SAFE WORLD
--EARTH!
AT LEAST
OUR SON WILL
OUTLIVE HIS
WORLD!
DON’T WORRY,
DEAR. ALTHOUGH WE WON’T
SURVIVE, OUR LOVE
WILL...
“...AND IT WILL TRAVEL
ALONG WITH OUR SON, NO
MATTER WHERE HE MAY GO...”
“...THROUGHOUT ALL TIME
AND SPACE...”
BUT I DON’T THINK
WE HAVE TO WORRY
ABOUT THAT.
I LOVE YOU,
BLACK LARA.
I LOVE YOU,
BLACK JOR-EL.
HOLD ME.
“...FOREVER.”
“UNLESS...”
I HOPE HE
FINDS A GOOD
HOME ON
EARTH!
GOODBYE, MY
SON...AND GOOD
LUCK!
...UNLESS FOR SOME REASON
HE BECOMES A CARTOONIST, OR
SOME KIND OF COMIC ARTIST...OR
STARTS A BLOG OF SOME SORT!
IN THAT
CASE WE WILL
WITHOUT QUESTION
DEFINITELY, ABSOLUTELY,
CATEGORICALLY, UNEQUIVOCALLY
NOT LOVE HIM, AND HE WILL BE
ON HIS OWN!!!
