Welcome To The Zone, The Reboot: Part Eighteen
Page 40 of WELCOME TO THE ZONE, my graphic novel from 1995. This is a new version, rescanned from the original art and reformatted into Indesign layouts, with new balloons and lettering. My plan is to put the whole thing up online.

I haven't made many text changes in this new version of this story, but I have had a change of heart on the name of Horn's girlfriend. In my original draft she was "Daphne", but just before the book was originally published, l decided for the sake of diversity to make her Eastern European, a nod to the mixed ethnic character of the East Village (the model for "The Zone") and its many Polish and Ukrainian restaurants. I renamed her "Sneyana", a name I found in a program for a concert by the Mysterious Voices Of Bulgaria. Ukrainian, Bulgarian, what's the difference, right? Well, I figure inaccurate diversity is a wasted gesture, so THIS time I went to the internet in search of genuinely Ukrainian girl's names, and picked "Yelyzaveta" because it seemed the most exotic of the bunch (it is just about recognizable as a form of "Elizabeth").
