Jacob's comments:

  • Because this comic was actually started in 8th grade, no comics pertaining to 7th grade were made when they happened, but rather in retrospect. As such, they're all labeled as "Looking Back", showing that they were made after the fact. Every new batch of "Looking Back" comics get a new number to distinguish them from the last. For example, the comics about 7th grade made in 8th grade are simply called "Looking Back". The comics made about 7th and 8th grade in the summer of 2009 are called "Looking Back 2", respectively.
