This page is named after A Nightmare on Elm Street.

A lot of things randomly came together to make this chapter better. It’s particularly evident here. When I tried to write Scurry out of the story during the treehouse scene, I realized that I had been going about it wrong. I wanted him gone because I couldn’t find a use for him, and only once I had managed to remove him did I realize that he could be extremely useful later on by bringing “the cavalry”.

This was the first page Josh colored. Difficulty-wise, it was the easiest and most straight-forward. There was no copy-and-pasting or elaborate background to worry about. He came up with the “explosive” spotlight effects behind Morty. They jazzed up the page nicely.
