This scene takes place on Saturday, March 7th, 1925, two years after the events of the story. Michel Verne died Thursday, March 5th, 1925. It was difficult to find an obituary for Michel Verne. The fact of the matter is that he never managed to live up to his own expectations or the expectations of his father. So, in the end, I wrote his obituary. The newspaper, Paris Soir, was a large-circulation daily newspaper in Paris, France from 1923-1944. This scene has to take place on Saturday since he was not a large enough figure to have his death be reported immediately (i.e. the next day) and Paris-Soir did not begin Sunday publication until December 22nd, 1935.
Yes, that is a corgi at Ana’s table. I threatened to re-write the entire story to have a corgi appear in every scene. I promise there will be more corgi in the future!
And, with that, we come to the end. Almost one year to the day since we published the first four pages in time for the first Geek Girl Con we publish the last page, in time for making our application for a table at next year’s San Diego Comic Con.
But fear not, Ana DuPre will return in 2013 with an all new adventure titled “Ana DuPre and the Eye of the Kraken”. For now we will update from time to time with updates and information as well as sneak peeks.
I would like to take a few moments to thank two people who made this comic possible. First and foremost I would like to thank Keri who agreed to draw what became this book. Had she known what she was getting in to, I doubt she would have agreed so readily. She brought Ana and her world to life and has helped me realize a life-long dream.
I would like to thank the love of my life, Emmy, who has supported me all along. She has always believed in me and encouraged me to go out and make something of my own. Had she not been pushing and encouraging I would have lost faith long ago. I am eternally grateful.
And thanks to you, the readers. It is one thing to make a comic. It is another to read a comic which people read. Thank you for being there on the other end. We will see you soon.
