People in fiction referencing other fictional characters always struck me as kind of odd and confusing, but this joke was just too fitting to pass by.

Happy New Year!
Wow,what a great first panel. Nice use of negative space. I really like how you got everyone in, plus the surroundings.
If Sonny hadn't said "Mary Poppins", one of us would have--nice blocking move. And I was wondering if May still liked Randall.

@GroovyKinda: Yeah, I went back and forth on the Mary Poppins thing, but I figured that line wouldn't sound too out of place if Sonny, the resident pop culture nerd, delivered it.

@Delta-v: Heaven only knows what she sees in him, but in May's defense, she likes everybody. Maybe Randall's thick sweater makes him good teddy bear material.
@melaredblu: It may be a little odd, but I find it a convenient way of letting the audience know what kind of world you're creating. If your world has Mary Poppins in it, the audience will know it has similarities to the real world. Only with more expressive chicken hats.

I like worlds which are oddly familiar, yet they have one or two quirks (like Death babysitting and green powder witches!) that set them apart. Says the guy writing a Magical Girl world with cel phones and convertible cars.

@Hjels: The way I figure it, I've already referenced Nintendo in an earlier page, so Disney should be par for the course. I'm going to try to keep references to a minimum, though. Too much can wreck the mood.

@Hipopotamo: M9Girls! is also a sci-fi. Sci-fi assumes that the character's world is the real world unless we're told otherwise, so it makes sense that the characters use modern day technology.
