Alex and Amelia Marble were the kids I remember living next door to me.
They were ordinary kids -- he liked soccer while she was somewhat grouchy. They had a little brother they called Pouch, friends Luke, Timmy and Lucy, and the laziest dog I have ever seen – a mongrel with a split personality named Sheriff.
I don’t know what became of them, but whenever I think of Alex and Amelia Marble I go back to my childhood.
I don’t think they ever knew they inspired a comic.
