Author's Notes[]

Author's Notes
Volume 002 Intro Image Customer

"Oh generous host a customer has come I wonder where shall we have him sit People who have to sit near the exit make me feel uneasy"

Nice, isn't it. This Northern European Pirate Song.

(Note: Color Walk 1 later confirmed the rabbit illustration is in fact Oda's rendition of the White Rabbit, drawn as part of a larger Alice pastiche.)
