Dear readers, 

I had an thought about inserting myths, legends, and other neat stuff in my comic series. Not big stuff like Bermuda Triangle or Loch Ness Monster; I mean stuff from my home state, California.  The reason being is that I have a copy of Weird California written by the Mark Sceurman and Mark Moran, the hosts of Weird US on the History Channel and the owners of the Weird US and Weird New Jersey Youtube channels: and I always like the stories in the book, including the story of Emperor Joshua Norton I of the United States. Another thing is that most of the comic strips I have seen have a distinct awareness of the ideas that inspired their stories. What I want to bring into my series is something that is both recognizable to many but stand on it's own in terms of originality. I may include Bigfoot in this mix up, but only because the famous footage:  was filmed in California and has become (what I think) part of the culture of California. I will make jokes about the matter that these stories are, either cryptozoology, weird people, strange phenomena, etc., but with a good point to be made in each one.

Another part of the puzzle is that I will also include timeless train stories in the comics, just so the general audience and railfans can have something to enjoy. I have a very neat children's book from 1957 called Read-Aloud Train Stories, which can help out in bringing some of these timeless stories back to the public. Such classics such as Tommy on the Train by Jean Fritz, which involves warming a baby bottle on a steam locomotive, could be useful because of both humor and the charm that cannot replaced by many of the Thomas stories coming out today. I would consider putting Lions, hyneas, and other unique creatures into the strip for the verity.

 So, tell me what you think of the whole idea.
