Author's note from Powernaut Comics:

I'd like for this Doom Bear episode to have been in 1990, so as to 
slavishly follow Marvel Comics which was bringing back villain comics 
then.  The occasion was Thanos overflowing from a Silver Surfer plotline 
into his own villainous quest, which would eventually be the basis of 
the world's highest-grossing movie (or two) up to 2019.  The Doom Bear 
has likewise overflowed Powernaut Comics.  But he's on a timeline, so he 
has stuff to do later in 1990 - when Ellipsis shows up.  And Christine 
Lassiter needs some time to get there too.  Hence, Doom Bear 1989.

This episode has a bunch of other things to explain.  For instance, 
presumably the Doom Bear (and the other Doom Creatures) had 
predecessors.  Also, he took over the Happy Bear Land somehow.  Also, 
he's awfully fixated on fire and ice.  Well, here's where we get answers.

I've already incorporated realistic fire art into my comics, plus 
realistic cloud art which I photographed myself.  Now I include 
realistic ice art which I photographed myself, at the great Greenland 
icecap in 1999!

As of mid-November 2019, I have completed and incorporated all artwork 
for the episode.  So I feel confident in producing two strips a week 
until the episode is through, before end of year.  I might even 
incorporate "modal" single strip displays soon (like Facebook has). 
Happy Holidays 2019!
