RYAN DOW: The idea was that this preteen which couldn’t afford a proper cauldron so she used the family commode when her parents were out for the night. Danno added the fishnet sleeves, which was a nice touch.
DANNO KLONOWSKI: I also added a few more candles. Maybe the pentagram and bath towel as well…?
RD: “May this blood nourish you and strengthen you,” comes from a Lutheran prayer that comes after communion. I tried to cram in as many religious phrases as possible because, well, it’s a story about an Elder God.
DK: I grew up Lutheran as well. I am now godless and Ryan is really into Buddha. Maybe having us drink blood as kids wasn’t the best way to sell Martin Luther’s God.
Also: If you haven’t checked out “CONTINUITY GUY” yet (I’m looking in your direction, STEINLICHT!), now is a good time. BUD is over halk-way done illustrating this graphic novella I wrote, and things are really getting interesting. Bud has even been posting more than one page a week lately. Check it out!
Finally, RYAN, DANIEL J OLSON, KEVIN CANNON and myself will be in ALTOONA, IOWA this Saturday (Nov. 7th) for the I-CON comic book convention (it runs 9am to 5pm). One of the books you will be able to purchase at I-CON will be the all-new “PHIL, THE EVIL BEAN OF DOOM” I did with long-time collaborator DAN MURPHY. “PHIL” was recently reviewed by TED ANDERSON over at the EXAMINER. It’s not what I’d call a glowing review, but it doesn’t poo all over us either. Basically, we’ve inspired ambivalence. Anyway…
*** BTW: just cause you’re getting the PLUNGER-MAN milk for free, you should still totally buy the MUSCLES AND FRIGHTS cow. It’s full of a ton of great stuff from some wonderful creators. But…you don’t have to take my word for it.
