The real Christopher Robin had a fraught relationship with his famous playwright/literary editor father. A. A. Milne based “Winnie the Pooh” on his son’s childhood, which the real Christopher Robin Milne grew up to resent. He would later buck his father’s wishes and drop out of Cambridge to enlist in World War II and marry his cousin. He died in 1996.
In this comic short story, Ian Chachere imagines Chris Robin Milne’s last moments. We hope he wins the comics competition he submitted this to.
