    Roscoe’s Rib Shack, a nod to Darrin’s grandfather.

    I vote for it’s Lionel. Lemont is watching him and looking perturbed. Lionel has encapsulated Lemont’s situation.

    Mr. Bell. Touching, insightful. Thank you for sharing your grandfather’s final trip with us. His arrival was sublime… A high point in comics lore.

    It’s not Lionel, but whoever the kid is, he’s got Susan and Lemont down to a T!

    Agreed. As I said yesterday, a most eloquent and moving tribute to an honored man.

    In reorganizing my bookmarks, I just ran across a video from about four years ago of a panel discussion with Darrin where he relates how he got started in writing and cartooning. At about the 12:30 mark he talks a little bit about his grandfather and we get a small hint of how close they were. The video is an interesting and illuminating view into his character and ethics.
