Welcome to Lawrence

ks-35-cgreetings-from-lawrence-kansas-postersEverybody knows when it comes to home, there’s no place like Kansas.  Even Clark Kent made his home there but there’s another town that’s buzzing with hero back story activity.  Lawrence, Kansas we now know is home to not only the Winchesters but also Daphne Millbrook.  Of all the towns in all the land I had to know, what’s so great about Lawrence?  wmplayer202008-10-052016-03-39-16

Supernatural made Lawrence look like a residential town, with a car dealership, a barber shop and a diner.  So far, all we know about the Lawrence of Heroes is that you can grow corn near it, corn thick enough to hide Parkman wearing black only a few stalks deep. They have Sam’s Comic’s with two really funny guys working in it and apparently people really like the hulk there.

  1. It should also be noted that John Connor’s fake self is originally from Lawrence as well. Even people who aren’t from Lawrence, like to pretend that they are!

  2. Oh I forgot too, it’s the home of black Aaron Douglas. They have a mural for him.

  3. I think I’m sensing an impending road trip…
