Confession: Despite living in Alberta for a cumulative eight years, I've never been to Medicine Hat.

I've never heard of Medicine Hat before reading this comic, but damn if that isn't the coolest name for a place I've ever heard.

Powerful page.
Fun fact:I lived in Alberta for almost 4 years and also never visited Medicine Hat.

The use of silence, awesome script, composition of the page, and your usual powerful silhouette work make me really appreciate your work, but this page in particular. The circumstances of my western travels were different than Peter's, but looking back I can definitely relate to his isolation and need to just figure his shit out.
Long time fan, thanks for pressing forward with this story-would love to pick up hard copies when I can actually afford them. :P

Canuckland towns
For those surprised/delighted at "Medicine Hat", here is a non-exhaustive bucket list of great Canadian place names to visit this lifetime:
Moose Jaw
Regina (cuz it sounds like...snicker)
Bella Coola
Flin Flon
St John/St John's (so you can see the difference)
Red Deer

The "St John" in that list is actually Saint John, oddly enough one of the cities where Pictures of You got its inspiration. Some other notables are:

Spread Eagle Bay, not far from Conception Bay, and nearby you'll find Placentia
Sober Island (never been there)
Saint-Louis-du-Ha! Ha!
Head-Smashed-In Buffalo Jump
Fertile, which is just a few hours from Climax
Vulcan (where there is an alien landing pad)
Happy Adventure
Punkydoodles Corners
and of course, Ball's Falls
