"Love and Other Imaginary Things"
Issue#92: "Love and Other Imaginary Things"
Kathy Breaks up with her boyfriend. Feigenbaum meets a Pooka lady...
Notes and References:
The title of this issue is a reference on whether love is a genuine thing or if it's merely an imaginary concept much like Feigenbaum being an imaginary creature. The title is also a play on the 2010 romantic comedy "Love & Other Drugs" directed by Edward Zwick and starring Jake Gyllenhaal and Anne Hathaway.
In the first panel of this issue, Kathy Dudbert breaks up with her new boyfriend Barney. The relationship first started in issue#87: "Barnaby Banks Loves Kathy Dudbert". The reason for the break up in this issue is because of Kathy's enduring love for Barnaby.
Feigenbaum states that Pookas are immune to falling in love but quickly changes his mind when a female pooka walks past him.
The quote that Feigenbaum recites on the last panel of this issue is from William Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet.
Here is the quote-
This bud of love, by summer’s ripening breath, May prove a beauteous flower when next we meet. Juliet, Act two, Scene two.
The quote basically means that the feeling of love between two individuals has just begun and will become much stronger as they continue to meet up.
