Yay, more Rick! We'll be getting to the next one of these later on in the filler. Admittedly kind of aware these probably still come off as weird nonsequiturs but it is all going somewhere and hopefully everyone's going to enjoy the end result because it's something we've been super hyped for.

This one actually took a lot of last-minute tweaking and working through issues, kind of the one of these we had the least ideas for on paper; broad strokes were in place but had to do a lot of tinkering with it when it came go-time. Think Adam even mentioned on the last one that this next one was probably the one he was least interested in.

We both took up writing duties on this one. Adam got the initial foot in the door on it but was struggling, in part due to lack of ideas and in part due to struggling with how to work this format into talking about movies when it's exclusively been TV shows thus far. I took up writing it and reworked what he'd written into instead being about a horror anthology show and then I finished it up from there. Was one pretty good joke that sadly had to get dropped to accommodate for that, but eh. Khelsea's design also went through quite a bit of last minute, spur of the moment tinkering - I'll let Adam get into that.

There's a particular joke in here I was really unsure about but Adam loved and wanted to keep. It'll be a bit before it becomes clear, kind of an in-joke for the moment, but really hoping someone eventually picks up on it.

Oh right, I kind of wanted to share this cute bit of filler we did for WaR since I know Xandy and Lenore have plenty of fans -

Also, you may have noticed that we have a new logo. It's the same overall idea, but the coloring is different and the lines are a lot cleaner. Went up shortly after the last filler so been up a few days, just only now really commenting on it. I'll probably post a comparison image when we post the next cover because the difference is very noticeable there.

Honestly, looking back wasn't fond of this one. This was a massive pain to do as it took a lot of time to both write and draw it when the filler is supposed to be quick. It also required a last-minute re-design of Khelsea because her design never quite caught on with us. I was genuinely tempted to drop her while working on this.

In general was the one we had the least ideas for, both for a character and a blog entry, so was just a slog to get through. And we're doing another Rick one after this.

For the design thing, like I said, Khelsea's design was always the weakest of the ones we'd drawn up, and at the least minute when drawing that "CAN YOU DIG IT" picture I liked the design for the one on the left more. Originally did her with an afro (was going for a Cleopatra Jones thing), but tried this instead. Either way, was better than the original design so just figured we'd make her Khelsea.

Very much love the new logo, though. ^^

Rick's chapter is going to be very, very interesting as well as extremely weird.
