I just think this page is really sad :( 
Though after reading your wonderful comics I've started to like Pitch a lot more because I think you show that he isn't a one-dimensional character but has many layers to his personality. I like when there's more to a villain than meets the eye and your comics, in my opinion, move him into a grey zone which makes him much more interesting as a character. In my opinion this grey zone is shown a bit in the movie as well when Pitch says he just wants to be believed in so he already is an interesting character in the movie but I think your comics explore this grey zone a bit more. 
So all in all good work :D (and sorry for my rambling ^^')

Well Pitch, the great depression was on everyone's minds because of these reasons

 

1. Everyone was in poverty (meaning they couldn't afford food and when they did they froze it)

2. Those who didn't live in houses lived in "buildings" called Homerville (which was called that cause everyone hated the president at the time)

3.  They literally had to fight to survive

 

So I think the Boogieman would be the last thing on everyone's minds

I read this movement and then went back and read the others. Now re-reading this, I love how you bring in references to what happened in the previous ones. This entire series of fancomics is incredibly detailed with the art and wonderfully original and yet true to the characters.

Thank you very much. All these short stories are somewhat connected.

Geez, the Depression was rough on everyone-- Pitch probably had to pawn those gold accents. And Easter? Don't even get us started on rationing.

He lost all gold accents a long time ago. As for rationing on Easter...Bunny was working hard just making sure spring would at least happen.

STOP HIM BEFORE HE GETS TO GERMANY!!!

(seriously, this is cool. You almost do better than the movie just using comics.)

Ah, so much fear before and during WW2. Pitch still can't believe how stupid humans can get.

Indeed, if this didn't give him a low opinion of us forever, hate to stick around for the 50's between fear of nuclear war and segregation.

He may have a low opinion, but at the same time, he is always entertained. Not good to know that he loves to see how far he can push fear and see the result...

Hopefully not too much, for he has no sympathy for you.

I love his shadow in the first panel... And how uncomfortable is it for someone to walk through him? Does it hurt or just feel weird?

It hurts his pride, mostly.

Hmmm, no more splash of colour. He's a far cry from himself in the beginning of Light and Shadow wherer he was strutting about like a peacock.

The only color left are in his eyes. Apart from that, he is a shadow in that world.

He hates when that happens.
In the old days, even when some didn't see him, they would step away from his path.

Thought. Did that guy walk through him or hit his shoulder? Cause if he doesnt believe in pitch, then he shouldnt have been able to touch him. But if he walked through thats a different story. Either way, love this! And set in the depression. Perfect choice.

And perhaps choosing the depression era was too easy, but it fit too well to ignore ;)
