Homecoming King - Part 10

Part 10

I timed this entire storyline so that this one strip would be published today, on Veterans Day.

And if I really had a time machine I would've gone back to the early 70's and did the same thing for as many returning soldiers as I could.

Comic transcript

TRANSCRIPTION COURTESY OF JOSEPH HOUK - [1972; Northampton, Mass.; Cassie's speech continues] So I feel it is only right that we should organize a Welcome Home Celebration for Mr. Holland and the other soldiers who made huge sacrifices for the good of our country. [Everyone in town is there, with WELCOME HOME, THANK YOU JAKE, GOD BLESS YOU, WE LOVE YOU JAKE! and WELCOME BACK, SOLDIER signs] It would not only lift the spirits of our brave troops... [Jake sees Brandy – and Jasmine] ...but also inspire us everyday civilians to do more to help them in their time of need. [Running hugs!] I trust that you will make the right decision and assist us in this small yet noble effort. [The backs of two distant observers – one a blonde woman, the other a little FBI agent – watch the reunion unfold] Thank you. Thank you all.
