OH SNAP, I'M A WEEK AHEAD ON COMICS FOR ONCE. That's right, I'm actually writing this before I leave for my sister's wedding in Georgia... even though I SHOULD have already been back for about two days by the time you read this. See, it's 'cos I'm gonna be out of town AGAIN for Anime USA, so I needed to go ahead and start building up as much of a buffer as I could (MAN this has been an exhausting summer)

Anyway, this is another one of those pages where I just started drawing the first thing that came to mind. The results aren't perfect (the first panel shouldn't have that awkward close-up) but I still like it. Exasperated Layla is pretty much always funny.

Speaking of things I like the next to last Killer Station of Deadly Doom is online. You should go vote and read it. Like, really. Even if you weren't paying attention to the Voting Incentive comics before, you should really read this one.

This... Damn it, you. This just raises a hell of a lot of questions, the most important of which is: did he marry twice?
Because I just don't see his current wife... damn, you're actually making me respect spoilers. See what you have wrougth!

Actually it brings another question, though. One that I meant to ask earlier and then forgot. Wasn't the framing device for the killer station that it was a memory being retold by Ichabod? That is, how does he know what happened to superdad?

Blitzkrieg1701, September 9th, 2013, 6:26 pm

MWAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!! Lest I should give away too much to people who haven't seen the incentive yet, let me just say that SOME of that question is a result of my not having as firm a grasp on the characters personalities as I do now. If I ever go back and redo the earlier pages, I'll change things around some to make the characterization more consistent.

...but not TOO much, because there's still some significant backstory for ALL these characters that hasn't been revealed yet. I mean, I actually DO know how the character we see in the incentives can be the same one we've seen elsewhere (this isn't one of those times where I'm just leaving it in the air 'cos I have no idea, there IS a plan this time) but it's something that'll be answered in a later comic. Probably another Voting Incentive series later on.

Something I CAN mention right away: Killer Station of Deadly Doom is not, in fact, a flashback by Ichabod. I specifically chose not to use that sort of framing device so that we wouldn't have that problem of showing things he couldn't see. (Though, in retrospect, starting the story off with Ichabod talking to someone else probably was a poor choice, since it COULD give the impression that he WAS narrating)

Yay a new page

Seros Senric (Guest), September 9th, 2013, 11:11 pm

The trouble with going all over the state for various things occasionally is that I miss comic updates.

This page has a confused Bridget, finally a use for Xal-Gox soda, and Layla upset about fish.
All in all, I think it was a good page :)

OK, I did not see that coming. Congratulations.

Oh and what was moved to room Q-15 it's killing me

power comic, September 9th, 2013, 11:33 pm

P.S totally saw that incentive page coming he was a nice guy but a criminal who do we know that is like that?

Seros Senric (Guest), September 9th, 2013, 11:45 pm

@power comic
I can see it in hindsight, but usually I see stuff like this beforehand too.
This obviously means that I'm overdue for rereading the entire archive in a single sitting again.

Blitzkrieg1701, September 10th, 2013, 12:03 am

I was wondering who would or wouldn't see the connection coming. I TRIED not too draw too much attention by having the main comic and the incentives talking about the same thing at the same time, but that only covered so much.

Oh, and Q-15? Apparently that's there they put the TOE COLLECTION... ew.

Guest, September 10th, 2013, 11:14 am

"according to plan". According to the rules olf fiction, any plan this crazy has to work. Unless, of course, you say something like that.

Antonio (Guest), September 10th, 2013, 5:31 pm

Ok, so I imagined the framing flashback thing. Alright. It's been a while.

Another question just sprung to me though: didn't superdad say he had childREN?
Man, that word sure looks dumb like that. But you know what I mean?

Blitzkrieg1701, September 10th, 2013, 5:53 pm

Do you remember where? 'Cos he SHOULDN'T be saying that. Unless it's a statement about the general concept of having children at all, I thought I was doing pretty good about avoiding future inconsistencies.

power comic, September 10th, 2013, 7:05 pm

I just wanted to point out Layla's mom looked a little like tabetha in the killer station of deadly doom

Blitzkrieg1701, September 10th, 2013, 9:41 pm

Yeah, I need to learn how to draw more kinds of glasses

power comic, September 11th, 2013, 12:58 am

You really do but other than that I love your comics!
P.S. what will the next incentive be I need to know

power comic, September 12th, 2013, 6:56 pm
