The discontiuity factor

aprilp_katje noticed something interesting about the sequence of strips we're seeing now: they appeared before Phil's visit. This means that in the real past, Connie didn't disobet Foob law and take steps to improbe her lot in life after she'd figured out that Phil wanted no part of her. What really happened is that she was bullied into not placing the ad and exacted her revenge by getting in Elly's face about that brother of hers. Also, Elly was less insistent about stopping the whole thing which led to her being confused (instead of being angered by her defiance) when Connie went to Montreal. This is yet another example of Lynn's attempt to palm off a distorted version of the past as the real story. We're not getting the background we were promised; we're getting an alternate universe because of someone's need to rewrite history to suit her current needs. As I've said, this is a disservice to not only her fanbase but Lynn herself. It betrays a lack of confidence in her work.
