    P1 – Annie, by Jay Maeder & Alan Kupperberg
    P2 – (No dialog)
    P3 – Inset: Ghost Story
    Annie: Hello, Hazel! Hello, Constable! Come in!
    Hazel: And we’ve brought our young friend John Drum, Annie!
    P4 – Constable: Johnny was but a lad of 15 when a Redcoat’s bullet stole his life away in the Battle of Hamlet Mountain!
    Annie: Gee.
    Johnny: Aye, Miss! Two centuries now have I slumbered in the peace of the verdant valley’s sweet flowers!
    P5 – Hazel: Life is for the living, Annie! But graveyards are for the dead!
    Constable: This developer fellow will build shops over Johnny’s foot stone … and the stones of 50 patriots just like him!
    P6 – Hazel: The entire cemetery is terribly disturbed!
    Constable: Still … so few listen to the dead anymore.
    P7 – Amelia’s convertible: VROOOM!
    P8 – Constable: Who’s that?
    Annie: Yipes! It’s Amelia! She’s back from the village early!
    P9 – Amelia: Annie, who on earth are you talking to in here?
    Annie: Er … nobody … just mumblin’ …

    Panel 5: Poor stone, not foot stone.

    I was wondering about that. I kind of went back and forth between “foot stone” and “poor stone” but I figured that I knew what a “foot stone” is and I’ve never heard of a stone being “poor.” Anyway, thanks, Jan.

    It would have made better sense to say “head stone” anyway, instead of “foot stone.” So, let’s go with “poor,” instead of “foot.”

    What era are Hazel and Constable from and how does Annie know them?

    I wonder if the spirits are offended that Annie will not introduce them to Amelia?
    Also, Thanks David! I’d go with “poor stone” as his headstone is probably about gone by now.

    I’ve been asking that same question. It was before Maeder became the writer, so I can only guess it was during the Leonard Starr era. I wish I had access to the Starr stories so I could look it up.
