Back to school with Roddy is a Precocious story arc. It ran in 2009 and consisted of strips #101-111.

Central character(s)Edit


Autumn experiences her first day at Poppinstock Academy - an archetype of her educational future.


The Sapphire kids have gathered at the bus stop to be driven to Poppinstock for their first day back to school. Suzette shows up snarling about discrimination, provoking a violent exchange that hustles them to the school on foot. Roddy stops Autumn and tries to shield her from her friends' insularity complex, only to discover that he has intervened too late to prevent it. Ms. Monster, the class teacher, introduces her new student in an unusually frank manner; Autumn indulges her with a similarly off-kilter paranoia.
