Issue 2 opens with more scheming from Roger, this time in the company of his Father-in-Law Thomas Beverley, Charlotte’s Father.  The Beverley and Chalmers family go way back and were part of the Great City elite.  They were both powerful leaders in The Honorable Aztec Guide, the political party that held sway over the affairs of Great City for a generation.  Henry Chalmers, the Great Builder of Great City’s Spiraling Skyline was the mentor and partner of Thomas Beverley, whose controversial network of swirling elevated rails became a symbol of choking urban oppression for the crowded masses who pine for leadership!

That’s an early Pete Mondrian painting that I painstakingly reproduced.
