Niko: This comic depicts that classic parent-child relationship where the child is in their rebellious phase. However, instead of chastising them, the parent is reminded of their own rebellious arc and looks back with fondness.
Ryland: This comic reminds me of the storyline I wish I grew up with. Music and angst expression could be used to grow the bond between generations, not divide them. With so many negative ideas circulating around Gen Z, I wanted to use the comic as an opportunity to facilitate connection.
