As some of you may have seen when we were teasing this page over the past couple of weeks, you noticed the cable car, complete with cute devil horns. Before you ask, yes, our interpretation of the Underworld is based off of San Francisco; before the book came out, we imagined that a city outside the Lucitor castle would have lots of hills and steep streets, so it made perfect sense to have San Fran as a base (complete with a “lavafront”, which was originally planned to be on the bottom two panels before we ultimately decided to cut it).
Then we saw leaks of the map for Mewni/The Underworld, and we were honestly creeped out with how uncanny the canon geography was, complete with our “lavafront” idea being a literal lake of fire with a whole dock!
Hopefully, these two pages give you a proper introduction to Tom, and we hope to start working on page 3 and 4 real soon!
