Jenny sure looked different back in 2003, huh? No grey and white tracksuit, no matching kitty-cat beanie, not any hint that she has flowing raven tresses - you wouldn't even recognise her if you didn't know who she was! But that's precisely the situation that existed back when she (and Candice) were first introduced: they were entirely new characters who had not yet developed their own signature looks, let alone had any tenable connection to any of the existing characters. Which was intentional - I didn't want to tip off my regular readers (all three of them, as I said before) that there was anything going on than your average, screwball Cosmos story.... Jenny certainly seemed to hold her new paramour in high esteem, giving Candice a typically sugar-coated description of their fateful encounter at the mall; and clearly anticipating future love-heart infested meetings! I'm not sure what is in the display rack she's peeking around in panel two, though: shoe-cleaning kits, given that she was in the footwear section? Not sure - I do have a habit of drawing 'random things in random packaging' in the backgrounds of store scenes, after all. But oh, Jenny, you're a crafty one: her smirking refusal to divulge further details is not only a way of teasing Candice.... it's a way of teasing the readers, as well. Who was the lucky guy? Without any prior knowledge, they had no way of knowing....
