The Phoebe date story continues, and we meet Phoebe’s potential date: Craig Wallington. Now, Craig Wallington was done as an homage to my friend Chris Watson, then head editor of the Silhouette and all-around campus celebrity. On a campus of 20 000 plus students, a good half of them could have picked ole Watson out from a crowd. That made him a good candidate for appearing with a cameo in the series.

There’s a little bit of an in-joke here, because Watson had a particular obsession with our girl Phoebe. Of course, I’m flipping that on its head here, but that’s part of the fun.

This is another strip where the last line works magic.
