Are Mike’s parents weirdos after all?!?!??!?

A second “GIANT HONEY BUN ATTACKS” newspaper headline seen.  I might be hinting at something.  HMM.  I’m subtle!!!!

I think at the time, I worried the shift from “oh look it’s a nice story about amber meeting mike’s parents” to “SCI FI ACTION HERO SHIT” would feel abrupt, particularly in Shortpacked! as it presented itself at the time, since there really hadn’t yet been any action heroics in it, so here’s me trying to wallpaper over that potential chasm before we got there.

When Dumbing of Age came around, I made sure I had Amazi-Girl show up, punch some dudes, and superhero-leap onto a roof in the first storyline.
