Man, this particular update has been the continuing story of me making things bigger and biiigger and biiiiiiiiiigger than I every planned for them to be. For one thing this page was only SUPPOSED to be the first half of what's now Tuesday's page, but this conversation just kept getting longer and longer until I had to give it a page to itself. So there's that, but for a sec there, I actually thought this page was gonna be done before midnight. I mean, the art's simple, and it was totally finished and everything, I just had to do the lettering. Buuuut see, I'd just moved a bunch of Patreon Comics over to the public gallery the other day, and was struck by how one page was too overwhelmed by technobabbel exposition to be, ya know, entertaining. So at the last minute, I looked over the dialog for this page and, yeah, it also needed a kick in the pants to actually be funny. That bit where Cap'n Crosby plants a whole lot of really wacky images in your head? None of that was in the original, all a last minute change. So if the speech bubbles look a little oddly sized today, that's 'cos they weren't drawn for the text they now contain.

AND THEN THE VOTING INCENTIVE. So, I still managed to get the comic done ALMOST early, but I still had to doodle up a little Voting Incentive... which turned into a kinda big Voting Incentive... which turned into a multi-drawing, editing several layers together Voting Incentive that had eaten up several hours before I knew what was happening. Here I had a completely done page just sitting on my computer where no one else can see it because I'm all wrapped up in this Voting Incentive. Well, common sense finally prevailed and I'm going ahead and posting the comic now before I forget again. The finished Incentive will be up in a few hours... unless I pass out partway through coloring it, which is all the more reason why I needed to get the comic up NOW.

EDIT: Okay, there it is!

EDIT EDIT: Wow, I swear I had no idea I was doing this particular Incentive on El Santo's birthday.

ONE MORE EDIT: So, not only did I add another set of Incentives to the new gallery, but I finally got around to adding a permanent link to it on the "Other Goodies" page. Don't worry, I did still leave links to the old pages too, if you wanna browse the older incentives that way.

Legends can get all kinds of crazy rumors attached to them. And with a legend that reaches so far there are people who will never meet Stilez hearing all sorts of insane tales about her...Yyeeaaahhh...

It actually would be cool to have a couple characters who've never met Stilez gather 'round and swap urban legends about her. Take a little trip into the outermost realms of canonicity.

Will the real Stilez please stand up?
So some random people are standing around swapping urban legends about the massive destruction created by Stilez, and Tabitha overhears them and joins in "Oh, yeah, Stilez, she's great! She's so cute and adorable and fun and loves to play and she purrs when you rub her fur the right way, etc. etc." and everybody just turns and stares at her.
"If you're going to make up Stilez stories, lady, at least make them believable!"

@ Ed8: You know, that's probably how Ichabod gets around people knowing he can actually manipulate Stilez. "What? You say there's a Nitpicker that's the only person, apart from Tax, who Stilez will listen to? Pull the other one, next time at least make up a believable story!"

About the stories about Stilez, I wouldn't be at all surprised if something happened similar to what made the modern interpretation of Robin Hood (half-a-dozen or more different individuals throughout a few ages were picked up and rolled into a singular "folk hero" encompassing them all). Only, you know, backwards. So half-a-dozen or more different escapades of Stillez's were picked up, rolled into a singular story which ends up being far more reasonable (and thus believable) than what actually happened.
