Anthony, Christopher and Eurasia.....

The interesting thing about the way Lynn drew Christopher Nichols is that in a few years time, he'll start to look less like a misshaphen blob boy and a lot more like someone we all know fairly well. Aas we see here, Anthony bears a striking similarity to the way Christopher looked when he last appeared about three years earlier. The reason for this is that as I said long ago, I tend to think that Lynn had originally planned to pair Christopher and Liz off from the get-go only to have to modify things when she pretty much dropped the Nichols family from the strip. The problem that faces her is that she's already gone on record as saying that while it looks as if Chris is Lizzie's classmate at certain points, he's actually in a Catholic school. What this tells me is that should the reprints (and the Foobiverse community) still be a going concern in eight years time, we'll be talking about how it was Anthony who told Lizzie that while he might have said to throw Super-Teddy at Mrs Grunion, it was her who threw it.
