Quick question. I saw you talking with another person about the fanfic that was inspired by this strip and I was wondering, which chapter were Francesca and Gino killed in the fan fiction. I'm not planning to read the whole fan fiction anyway.
This comic strip is based on characters and situations from a fanfic by titled "You're Not Here." I just fell in love with it and was inspired to create "Babysitter Bob." It has absolutely no connection to "Being Bob."
As for what happened to Fran and Gino, it's a long story, which is explained in "You're Not Here" on FFN, but if you want to know what happened without reading it, here's a summary:
In the story, Francesca divorced Bob and Bob went back to prison for trying to kill Bart yet again. 's character Serena (the brunette in my "Babysitter Bob" comic) helps get Bob out of prison and he goes to live with her.
In "You're Not Here" it is revealed that, a few years before, Bob's ex-wife and son were shot and killed by an unknown person. It is also revealed that Serena's big sister Esmeralda was attacked and nearly raped by some man, and her boyfriend Snake, as well as Serena, went after the guy for revenge.
They found him in an alley, and Serena only wanted to kick his ass, but Snake pulled out a gun and shot him. Then he sees Francesca holding Gino nearby and realizes they're witnesses, so he decides to kill them too. Serena tries to stop him, and while she wrestles with him for the gun, it goes off, shooting both Gino and his mother together.
Ever since then Serena has blamed herself for their deaths, but in the story, she doesn't yet know that it was Bob's family, and he doesn't know yet who killed his family, but soon they'll both make the connection.
