IX: You Know You’d Make One If You Could

There is a continuity mistake on Morty’s self-made ID: he’s actually 17. Cass and Noah are the only primary/secondary characters that are 18 at the beginning of the series. It’s likely Morty either feels he needs to compensate for what he thinks is a shortcoming (his rival Cass being older than him), or he figured he would slightly future-proof the card so he wouldn’t need to make another one next year.

In-joke in panel 5: I used Pigma Micron pens to draw these panels.

Everything about Thirteen, including her name, is based on a character created for Evil Jim. In strip #132 of that series, Jim reveals that he has created a catgirl assistant named Genetic Experiment 613. I decided the character had no place in that series, so she was killed off as quickly as she was introduced.

    It is at this point in the comic that readers realize that morality and law has totally failed to step up to the mark.
