thanks, i want a bear claw...and chips...and marshmallows (i assume that's what the moon puffs are - also, no moon pies, or is that what larry was about to rattle off after the chips before he got interrupted?)

Moon puffs are white cheddar cheese balls. No moon pies. They'd be too difficult to produce themselves, and too ridiculous/unnecessary to import from human towns. Larry would have next mentioned the buffalo wings that Basil's enjoying. And there's bound to be a few more nibbly things available as well. And as you may have read from previous comments, you're not the first to have been made hungry by this comic. Sorry. :)

what's difficult about moon pies? it's just marshmallow sandwiched between two round graham crackers and then dipped in chocolate

the hardest part i see would be getting the cracker round when they usually come in rectangles, but graham crackers wouldn't be so hard to make for themselves in the correct shape - they do require a special type of flour, but that can probably be purchased in bulk from a nearby city, no?

and speaking of cities...where is wolverton located? one of the earlier pages mentioned the nearby human town is called Mansfield and i think Manchester came up later on, though i can't remember which page it came up in...but those are both real cities located in Pennsylvania and England, respectively, so is wolverton also located in the USA, England or another country entirely? i know it can't be Australia because when talbot and duke were conversing, he mentioned duke's Australian accent and asked if he was from Australia - which he obviously wouldn't do if they were ALREADY there

I suppose moon pies aren't THAT difficult. I just didn't see it as something they'd be prone to making in their candy/cookie/treat factory. (Yes, it will be in the comic... eventually.) Maybe I'd been thinking of those little bumps around the edges? But you are probably right. Either way, they're at Larry's Place.

Both Manchester & Mansfield are fictional, along with Wolverton (obviously). I'm not going to specifically say where Wolverton is, but I will give you a hint. First, though, you might recall Talbot saying his parents moved back to the old country, and Transylvania is also mentioned. But since Talbot says he's not Romanian, we know that's not the "old country" for him. Referencing the "old country" does imply, however, that they're in the "new world", or, North America. As for the hint, it's located in the place which has the most alleged werewolf sightings (in real life).

well, i know Pennsylvania's had quite a few sightings - but that particular 'cryptid' is usually referred to as a dogman, not a werewolf

and there's the beast of bray road in Wisconsin, but that's multiple sightings of ONE alleged werewolf, not multiple - other than that, i don't know of too many other places in the USA that have had werewolf sightings...the oddest one i've ever heard was someone who thought they saw one near WAVERLY HILLS SANATORIUM, of all places

One of your answers is correct, but that's all I'll say.

i'll just go with Pennsylvania, because it's where i live...and it even kinda makes sense, since i do believe it was originally one of the 13 colonies making up new england, so the state would have a lot of that 'old world' immigration influence

You might want one even more when you see it. A few folks who have say it looks delicious. :)
