"Maybe today I can act younger..."
―Patrick McReary

Yearning to be Young is the tenth and final comic in Season 1 of Sibling Rivalries, and is the 10th comic overall.


After working out a little, Packie says that things were easier when he was a little kid, so he tries acting young again. After a few awkward moments, he slowly realizes that growing up is not as bad as he thought.

Character AppearancesEdit

♥ = character's debut
♠ = character does not speak throughout comic
♣ = character is mentioned only
♦ = character appears in a speaking/non-speaking cameo only


  • This is the first comic of the series to show different time periods (the past and the future).
  • The entire comic takes place at the McReary Residence (including the flashbacks and scenes from the future), while the outside world was never seen.
  • Packie does push-ups in the comic, although he hates exercise.
  • As a 7 year-old in 2007, Joel Gonzales had straight hair, which is different from the long hair that he has in the present.
  • Oddly, none of the McReary siblings' friends appear in the future scenes. They could have either moved away, or the siblings lost contact with them over the twenty years that pass by.
  • As a baby in 2007, Kate says "Goo, Goo!", which is both literal and a reference to Steve Jr., a character from the sister series, Cletus Comics, who frequently says this.
  • The comic starts similar to how the three prequels do, a box reading "Vancouver, Canada", then the year the comic is set. For this comic, it was 2007, as the beginning of the comic was a flashback to the said year. "The Return of Armando Vasquez" would also begin like this comic.
  • The birth of Aiden Wilson in the Season 4 comic "Wouldn't It Be Nice?" contradicts the end of this comic, since he was nowhere to be seen in the future scene with the other McReary siblings.
    • However, this retcon is simply because the character Aiden was not created until 2015. Of course, Aiden could have been out of the room at the time. Since Aiden would be 18 years old in 2033, he could be in college.
