It’s time once again to a foray into my initial online comic offerings. While it could be argued that all of my webcomics have been self-indulgent, these two in particular stick out. The first because it never really needed to exist, and the second because I began introducing original characters that weren’t simply sprites.
There was absolutely no reason for this to exist, as I could have just made them larger it the comic and not called any attention to it. Yet it exists, and it got me into trouble in geometry class when I began sketching it in my notebook. I didn’t even make them that much bigger, which is the most jarring aspect of the whole thing.
The next comic, at least, was supposed to be a similar thing but obviously exploded for reasons I’ll explain later.
The original comic was four panels long but I thought the clump of dirt I drew over the hat looked like a wizard’s robes and so the entire thing became what you just read which introduces two antagonists which kept popping up. Purga the Demon-Thing (called so because he’s only a half-demon due to some Antichrist thing going on. No, really) reoccurred regularly pre-Fictosphere and functioned as one of proto-Subject M’s big bads, as did the other guy who fancied himself to be a master of disguise. He was also created by a friend but I stole him gained ownership of him and made him my own, though his other most notable characteristic isn’t evident here.
The big deal about those three characters, I suppose, is that each one was drawn by me. Gerald was done with a mouse, but the other two were drawn and scanned in. Anyway, we only have two sprite comics left to look at, but boy, are they doozies.
