Because what this comic needed was CLEARLY another character in a jacket/oversized shirt.

I gotta get all critic-y about how this page turned out, or at least the last part. If a previously unmentioned character is going to make a dramatic entrance, it should be, you know, DRAMATIC. Like, several panels of the dude walking down a hall and then a big reveal as he throws some doors open. You know, the sort of visual storytelling you're supposed to do in a COMIC. Problem is, I've kind of got myself stuck in doing this flashback story based around Layla's narration. Suddenly shifting the style out of nowhere for a single scene just wouldn't have worked, and the REST of the story simply would take too long if I showed instead of told (heck, establishing the "truckers are heroes" bit alone probably would have taken two or three pages to do correctly) And thus, we're stuck with this less-than-epic moment here.

I guess the real reason this bugs me is because this guy is NOT some random character I cooked up last week. Remember back when I'd just started doing Voting Incentives and I posted a bunch of characters who hadn't appeared yet? Yup, there he is, two whole years ago. And better yet, the character wasn't even conceived for THIS story, I just threw him in as sort of an advanced preview of the ACTUAL arc he's supposed to be in. (Oh, and fun fact: "Disonar de Kantner" isn't the name I had in mind when I drew the preview pic. Honestly, I can't remember exactly what his name was then, 'cos the notepad I wrote it in is at my parents' house right now. I've actually moved TWICE since I first scribbled out most of this stuff)

Well, as long as I'm posting links, I'll go ahead and get to the rest. I'm still looking for feedback on the Far Out There Christmas Story issue. I've managed to get a rough concept together thanks to the feedback I've already received, but there's still plenty of room for someone else to squeeze an idea or two in!

And, of course, speaking of Voting Incentives, new Killer Station of Deadly Doom!

As a nitpicking fool, all I can say is the only thing swaggering about the new character into the scene is his/her/its "still frame from some waterfall" hair.

Now the only fear is whether the eyes will look just like the hair...

Note: No questioning about "truckers for heroes".

Ah, but is he a wild and crazy rich guy?

The only thing that bothers ME is "worked fore".
Ugly job, but somebody had to say it.

Edit: Scratch "only". The characters preview thing says "how much WITH their designs change".

MAN I wish Spellcheck was smart enough to have a "This is technically correct, but you probably didn't mean it" settng.

@Stick: funny you should express confusion about de Kantner's gender ("He", by the way). The character design gave me some trouble 'cos of how much he resembled Dr. Jarre, who was ALSO greeted with some gender confusion. Must be the glasses.

It's the hair. And I blame animes' constant trap settings. Those make me seriously reconsidering gender settings nowadays. :D

Oh, you think that's bad? If this flashback wasn't in black and white, I was seriously thinking about doing his hair in rainbow colors :)
