When I originally watched Crabby Author, I thought, “broken person who Arnold helps find a spark of happiness in them.” When I rewatched it, I thought, “How does Aggie eat? Where does she get her food? How does she pay for it?” And the answer was obvious: Earl. He’s the only one who knew where she was, and she’s been on Elk Island for almost a decade, so she has to have some sort of way to get residuals from her books and to, well, get food. That’s what spawned this comic. I’m sure that, if it was Earl that’s been bringing her food for almost a decade, whatever drove her to shut herself away from the world would become a topic of conversation between the two after a while. Add alcohol, and who knows how much she’ll reveal.
