In Jaka’s Story we learn how Jaka would ride Magic the wonder horsey when she was a little girl:
According to Dave in the Note From the President in issue #120 of Cerebus:
“Magic the wonder horsey ride exists between Mill Street and Highland Road right here in Kitchener, just behind the lawn-bowling and tennis club.”
So one Cerebite scholarly squirrel (Hi Eric!) narrowed down the spot on google maps. I had wondered where the Real Life Thunder was, even if I knew that the horse hadn’t been in existence for a bit, as the cover to issue #114 where the above picture is taken from is my favorite Cerebus cover. I know that the background was taken from a picture Gerhard took at Bruce Mines, but part of me would still like to see the actual park.
I asked Dave if that was the spot and he drew a map of where the park is located (click for an enlargement so you can read what he said):
Eric had indeed found the correct spot (once again, click for bigger picture):
