Cassandra's Secret - Part 1

Part 1

The sales associate in the store of the future is actually a character from "Now What", an earlier proposed comic strip (one I thought up just before TLT) that never got off the ground. His name escapes me at the moment.

Comic transcript

TRANSCRIPTION COURTESY OF JOSEPH HOUK - (CW is out shopping for clothes) I remember when it was just the more provocative women that wore thong panties. Now everyone has them on, even kids. I wonder what the future of underwear is like. Will people even wear it at all? It's worth checking out...[2071] Hmmm... nothing real out of the ordinary. "Autofit", interesting... but what's this "ANED" stuff that I'm seeing on all the packages? I'm almost afraid to ask... (to a sales clerk) "Excuse me, sir, can you tell me what this 'ANED TECHNOLOGY' is?" (Long haired clerk, with no visible eyes) "You really don't know what ANED's all about?" (CW) "No, I'm sorry... I just moved here from... um.. a very isolated small town out west." (LHC) "Wow, so they must still use toilets out there." (CW, to herself) Ohhh shit...
