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
however awesome work as always!!
(seriously, this is cool. You almost do better than the movie just using comics.)
In the old days, even when some didn't see him, they would step away from his path.
And perhaps choosing the depression era was too easy, but it fit too well to ignore
