Sally Forth: The Big Reveal

Posted in Uncategorized by cesco7 on September 3, 2019


That’s right! The big reveal is—COMA! A year-long coma for all! And not just any coma but the coma from the 1978 Michael Chrichton-directed film “Coma.” Is Hilary the only character whose organs were not harvested and sold on the black market to the highest bidder? Tune in and see!

So yes, we jumped a year. Which means several upcoming changes in plot as well as the fact that every kid is now 14. EVERY kid. On Earth. Check your own children today. We apologize to all those parents who thought they had already paid their kid’s college tuition and changed their childhood bedroom into a home gym that, quite frankly, you were never really going to use anyway.

    To be honest, I had thought the jump would be bigger, but it begs (for me) the bigger question: Will the characters age in real time now or is this just a one-off and Hilary is 14 for the next 20 years? Just wondering and do understand if you can’t answer.

    Interesting start to the new angle. I am hoping for natural aging as the strip progresses, as that was my prediction for the change, but what ever happens, I know this is gonna be fun!

    Big reveals:

    * Sally and Ted have divorced. She has become a Fortune 500 CEO with a trophy husband only eight years older than Hilary. No one has seen Ted since the divorce, when he drove off with two cases of vintage Billy Beer.

    * Faye and Nona have dumped Hilary and replaced her with Jenny. The three of them have become a popular Top 40 girls band, but are caught up in litigation with Hilary who claims their hit song “Werewolf Comic” was one of her composition.

    * Alice has lost he house and lives with Sally and her new husband as their live-in maid.

    * Hilary’s new boyfriend in Dondi Wills.

    * The entire jump was arranged thirty-seven years ago by Doctor Manhattan when he first read “Sally Forth.” Thirty-seven years ago, it’s still 1982 and the first strip of “Sally Forth” is running in the newspaper he reads. Francesco Marciuliano won’t start writing the strip for another 17 years.

    * After Ralph died of constipation, Jackie had his DNA inserted into six of her ova and had them implanted. Three of them survived, and she had triplets, naming them Ralphs Adams Jr, III and IV.

    * Laura sold her soul to the devil. No one witnessed any change in her behavior.

      Winkerbeaned! That is such a beautiful word for this narrative device. I wish I’d thought of it when Bendis did this with Miles Morales on Ultimate Spider-man.
