A Gymnasium is a type of school we have in Germany, for the school years 5 to 13.
This one is named after the von Gallensteins, the noble house that was once very important in Gernsbeck.

In panel 3 we see Rektor (= Principal) Otto Erkenschwick and Oberstudienrätin Henriette Pech - who also happens to be Peter Pech's mother!

We'll come to Mrs. Hilde Doyle (yes, from that family) next page.

And Amsterdam has... a certain reputation...
I'll leave it up to your imagination how exactly this trip did "not go very well"... ;-D

Ah, Peter's mommy... I wonder if she thinks of her poor-poor daughter-of-law in spe sometimes.

Maybe in the context of: "Thank goodness that she didn't apply for a job in my school!"
The poor old lady would probably have gotten a heart attack if you did! ;-D

Pffft, I'll keep that option in mind, spank me.

So that's Peter's mem, eh? Cool.

Speaking of Doyles, I once saw a graphic of the Doyle family tree and how they correspond to other comics. I think I saw it here, attached to Cryptida.
Do you happen to have that, or am I, for some reason, thinking it was posted in a different comic?

Yep, that's Peter's dear old mom! :-D


Hmmm, the only Doyle family tree I'm aware of is this one by lirvilas, but it doesn't show which Doyle belongs in which comic...

Perhaps you're half-remembering this one, which I made for the Collins family?
As in, Chase, Claire and Shana Collins from POW! Right in the Nostalgia - MST3KFan made a family reunion story and asked other ComicFurians to provide characters for it.
(I originally created Cleo specifically for that gig!)

The crazy thing however: Via Kaza (from Kaza's Mate Gwenna) those two family trees can be connected!
Just imagine what huge super-family tree that would be!! 0.o

Thanks so much!
The Fingerless Gloves one told me what i needed to know!
Thank you for the extra info by way of the other trees you provided!

You're welcome! ^^

But now I wonder:
Do you plan to... use this info for something in particular, or were you just curious?


(BTW, due to Claire Collins marrying James Lee in this recent POW! page, his complete family could now be added to the hypothetical Collins/Doyle super family tree!!)

Well, with the proper permissions, I am planning a trip to Anvil Flats for certain members of my certain myriad comics, hopefully in early 2023.
I was looking for outliers of the Doyle clan so as not to clash with any ongoing canon storylines that anyone has going.

I've been to Amsterdam and the reputation is deserved, however, it's always an educational experience ;D

I have been to Amsterdam a few times, and one of these was indeed a class trip.
However, the most outrageous thing that happened back then - at least as far as I'm aware off - was that one of my classmates peed into a gracht (one of the canals they have there) and got scolded by a policeman! X-D

Do you know what the really crazy thing is:
I actually had a job interview on the day this page went online!

(I got the job, BTW.)
