And there you have it, folks, the real reason for this entire aside at the Hector household: AN IN-UNIVERSE EXCUSE FOR ME TO STOP DRAWING MEGAWEAPON WITH THAT AWFUL SPIKY HAIRDO! You have NO idea how annoying it was to draw that mess! I could never get the same number of spikes, the size (length?) seemed to change with every panel, and the coloring took twice as long as it should have. BUT NOW I DON'T HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT IT ANYMORE! I'm so excited I did this page in color just to celebrate! HUZZAH!!!

Actually, those of you with great memories might recall that Megaweapon was SUPPOSED to have white hair from the start. But I was worried about introducing another white-haired, green-skinned child so soon after Bridget and Alphonse, so I gave the white hair to Kevin and Jenna instead. At the time, I reasoned that Megaweapon inherited hair color from his Dad's side, same as skin color, but now I prefer to think he dyed it to remove the one feature he shared with his siblings. It just seems like the sort of thing he'd do, ya know?

Oh, and just in case anyone objects that this haircut, easier to draw or not, isn't as memorable as the old one, don't worry. This isn't Megaweapon's "final" new look. His OFFICIAL new design (which I guess will debut with the new Profile pages) will have longer, more distinctive hair. But it'll still be white and still won't be spiky. THANK GOD.

(And, unfortunately, I can say from personal experience that an unwanted haircut is a REALLY effective form of discipline.)

Speaking of things looking different, you probably didn't notice that the old "News" button we never used has been replaces with an "About" button. Eventually, that'll lead to all sorts of introductory pages to explain stuff for new readers. For now, though, it just goes to a little stuff of an intro page which links to a plot summary. Still, that's SOMETHING to help out the poor newbies. Yay for me finally getting stuff done!

And while I'm on a roll, check out the new Voting Incentive for some MORE familiar faces looking kinda different!

Page:
Heh.

Incentive:
Nice outfits.

Story So Far:
Whoa... wall of text...
Wait, is that a blue link? Oh, it's a broken link, that explains it.
You missed out a quote when trying to have a link text of "Trigger crushes on Skye HARD"
This also causes the sentence structure to be wrong since words are missing.

I haven't read all of it yet, so critic is forthcoming.

I once had a haircut inflicted upon me. It really is a traumatizing experience to the unwilling party.

You have no idea how satisfying this page is.

Actually, scratch that- you probably do, considering you seem to hate Megaweapon just as much as I do.

(yes I seem to change my guest name frequently- first Henix, then hexagonaldonut, and now "The Hexagonal Donut". I am indecisive.)

...you have FAQ's?


Blitzkrieg1701, February 28th, 2014, 11:02 pm


Not yet, though there's a topic in the forum to gather up material. Eventually there'll be several, though. One on the "About" page to cover website/merchandise/real world questons, a stand-alone "FAQ" page to cover general comic-related stuff, and character-specific FAQs that'll be on the new Profile pages (when I finish them)

That's all coming in the near future. In the meantime, check out The Forum to see what Questions are being Frequently Asked (and feel free to drop a few of your own!)

Invader zim?


Mr BreaksIt (Guest), March 1st, 2014, 5:38 am


Yes, Megaweapon, yesss... Suffer for our amusement.


Zaealix (Guest), March 1st, 2014, 3:24 pm


It ever occur to anyone that the MANNER in which MegaWeapon's hair was cut was a bit more terrifying then an angry father with scissors?
Like...A 3D printer-like machine but with blade-furred weasels instead of a lazer?


Blitzkrieg1701, March 1st, 2014, 3:41 pm


...well it has NOW >:D


aqua (Guest), March 2nd, 2014, 11:02 pm


would it really matter to try and get the hair style even close all the time, presumably he gels it himself, so he either wouldn't be able to get it the same each time, or purposefully changes it


Blitzkrieg1701, March 3rd, 2014, 12:38 am


The problem is that it would radically change shape from panel to panel. Unless he was restyling it every 20 seconds, it was distracting... and even if he WAS, that's still distracting (probably more so)
