F16 - Teen Age Riot P2 by jbwarner86 F16 - Teen Age Riot P2 by jbwarner86
I want to clearly establish a theme in these new Forever 16 stories – every main character has something in their life that they feel they have to rebel against. In Joel’s case, of course, it’s his mother and her bland, uptight, Midwestern views on what sort of entertainment her children should and should not be exposed to. The defiant do-it-yourself atmosphere of the 1990s is the perfect time period to set a series about teenagers.

Well, all our moms are in this way.

By the way, I saw a little not-so-bad color-error in panel 5. Did you see him? Check with other panels.

. . . . . . . My parents didn't mind me learning how to play the violin, no matter how many times it sounded like I was skinning the cat. :D

Of course, the violin is a classical instrument, with a more sophisticated social stigma associated with it. I'm sure if Joel were trying to get one of those, Tina wouldn't object at all :)

Considering how every Violinist sounds when they are just starting out . . . . . I cannot help but wonder.

xD He should have then told her that he would never accomplish anything in his life, and actually just sit around and do nothing to see how she would react. lol

Parents 1

Teens: Angsty Zero!

Maybe if Joel mentioned that a few old time music artists (like the Eagles/Beatles/etc) used electric guitars, he could've won his case.

Ah yes, the classic "I really want this, but my parents won't let me have it" scenario. I'm sure I've seen this sort of thing in 90's cartoons dozens of times.

She raises a good point. Musical instruments are noisy.
Joel's father is my favorite adult character in F16 btw.

No reason raising a few bucks to buy a used ax can't be a do-it-yourself affair too. Could be an entire story arc.

A teen raising a hundred bucks in 1980-1990 for something technically irresponsable is supposed to be a small oddessey of welcome-to-the-working-world-OF FAILURE comedy. But this being under JB's flag, think of all the pool-cleaning and golf-ball diving experience he'll have to have. I would guess that no-good punks like Jocelyn have already stripped clean every coin fountain (and sewer grate) in the city.
