"When Loaker Met Feigenbaum" Special #4
Special#4: "When Loaker Met Feigenbaum"
A special flashback issue reveals the first time Loaker met Feigenbaum...
Notes and References:
This is the fourth of the six final special issues of Barnaby and Loaker.
The issue details the first encounter between Loaker and Feigenbaum. Baby Loaker wanders off and gets lost in the woods but he is soon found by the Pooka Feigenbaum who proceeds to reassure the young gremlin and take him back to the Banks Family. This chance encounter eventually leads to the unbreakable bond of friendship seen throughout the 104 issue series.
This is the second flashback issue in the series. The first flashback was in issue#66: "The Grandfather" which was set ten years ago. This special issue is set nine years ago. It is worth mentioning that Loaker already has his teddy bear that bears a strong resemblance to Feigenbaum at this point in the timeline. Also this issue shows that Feigenbaum hasn't really appeared to have aged a lot in comparison to Loaker.
The title of this issue is a play on the 1989 American romantic comedy film "When Harry Met Sally..." directed by Nora Ephron and starring Billy Crystal and Meg Ryan as the titular characters. The film raises the question "Can men and women ever just be friends?" through the many meetings between the two main characters.
