Two more places ideas for this 24 hour comic came from:
1) After the CITY PAGES COMIX ISSUE this year, an employee of the local food co-op, one Mr. Aaron Neumann, wrote me an email saying how much he liked my contribution and how much he hoped I never did a comic about the co-op. What he didn’t know what that is what we cartoonists call a challenge. Thusly, after I decided to do a SMV story I knew SMV and BAGBOY needed someplace new to work (having been gloriously fired in their last adventure from the SQUARESVILLE GROCERY STORE) and the co-op challenge was finally answered. And in case you missed it on page one, Aaron is the co-op manager. Worry not, he’ll be back in the tale later…
2) RANDOM IDEA GENERATOR: Some used Pictionary. Some just took some words from the dictionary. I randomly chose 3 panels from here:
I used either the dialogue (see panel 2 of this page) or a “re-imagining” of the panel art.
Oh, and don’t forget to go to FALLCON this weekend. I’ll be there with cool new stuf and a song in my heart.
