The webcomic's "Cast" page says that her father Richard North is a "single father".

Did the comic (or the author) ever explain what happened to her mother?

(The reason I'm asking: one of the comments to the latest big reveal strip compared Larisa's fate to what happened to Sandra's mother but I don't know if that was just a random guess or based on specific information about the latter).


Currently, no information has been given on that front in the strip itself. All that we know is that Julie North died on June 14th 2006 at the age of 33, about two years before the comic strips started. I haven't found the comment likening Larisa's condition to Sandra's mother's death. Could you provide a quote and/or a link?

Outside the strip, in a Q&A, the author said, in response to a question as to whether we'd ever learn how Sandra's mother died:

Maybe. I currently favor a car accident as cause of death, but that can be changed in the comic if needed.

So, until he establishes the answer inside the comic, it looks like a car accident is indeed the right answer.

  • Update! Turns out that the author said in a Q&A that his current idea is that it was a car accident, but that he reserves the right to change his mind in the future. – FuzzyBoots Sep 22 '15 at 17:09
