It’s totally crazy that this has come up in the Director’s Cut right now, because I’m kinda sorta trying to revive Edie. I’m working on an illustration of her, drawn in another style, for an online magazine, and two days ago I pitched an Edie story to a publisher. I have no idea whether any of it will pan out, but the character has been on my mind lately.
I’ve been afraid to reread the “Edie in Orbit” strips, but they’re pretty cute. Some people have commented that Edie could be Dave’s distant descendent. That is entirely possible.
