Fun Fact: I had to redesign Astrid's costume because the original's cleavage was a bit too ridiculous.  Methinks Astrid gets that complaint a lot.

*sigh* Next year I think I'm gonna go back to unconnected, single-page comics for Christmas. Maybe then I won't fall a full day behind like this.

Anyway, I think Astrid's persona was the easiest and most obvious one of the bunch, she just HAD to be Ted DiBiase. The Million Dollar Man is the gold standard (pun VERY much intended) for evil rich bad guy wrestlers, so who ELSE was Astrid supposed to be? Granted, in customizing the look, she managed to absorb quite a bit of Sasha Banks (especially the shades) but the overall attitude is still basically a brattier DiBiase. My only complaint is that I couldn't figure out a way to convincingly reproduce the diamond-studded look of the original Million Dollar Championship belt. That's two days in a row I blew waaaaay too much time on something I had to give up on. Not good for morale (even in this one wasn't anywhere near as big a deal)

And I'm sure somebody out there wishes I'd given Astrid more of a policewoman gimmick, sort of like a gender-swapped Big Boss Man. But let's face it: for Astrid, being a cop is just a job, being glamorous is a LIFESTYLE.

Poor Trigger can't seem to catch a break with these attempted interviews.

Title text:
....I shudder to think how it was before, since it's still ridiculous :)


Yesterday:
I can understand why a fan would be upset at this, but I'd assume that there at least should be a "no life-threatening injuries" rule that they could invoke to keep things making sense :P

For "big things" anything meant for entertainment (such as most fiction) generally has to make more sense than boring old real life.
(Also, Dranorter's teacher seems to have never read Tolkien)

Incentive:
That looks like a "why are you staring at me?" expression.



Also....
Patreon:
Good news!
They decided against their horrible payment change, which would have caused me to not be able to support things through that platform.
(though I probably would have kept my FOT pledge, just none of my others)

Astrid's Law
Astrid sounds a bit like the Millionaire/Police Detective Amos Burke of the 1963 TV series "Burke's Law".

(I used to watch this when I lived in Cleveland.)

regarding Astrid's costumer - this makes far more sense for her than a Big Boss Man theme anyway - after all she's not a uniformed cop (in real canon), she's undercover.
