Hey there? Quick question before we start. Who has allergies. You, no? Maybe? Well regardless, hear me out for a second. I just want to apologize for anyone I’ve ever made fun of that said they were suffering from it. Because I’m one of those people who is fortunate enough to not never experience them… at least I was before these last few weeks. All I know is that my throat feels swollen as fuck and it’s kinda sucky eating and shit. So I know I should be on bed rest and high off meds or something, but my damn addiction to this comic just won’t let me chill.
Even after tattooing until damn near 1am, I stayed up in order to really get these words on this page right. I wish I could show everyone how nice and neat they look before I go in and chop them up. And it’s weird because I’ve heard a few people say that it looks like I’m messing up when they see how ratty and shit the letters look. Well I actually put a lot of time into making them look like they were cut out of a newspaper. And it adds a bit of character to Angel’s story that I don’t think you can get if this was all nice and neat. But I mention that because this page was the first one that I feel I really got to show how awesome this method could be. Even with Angel not on the page, his presence is felt, all because of the words *cough cough. sips water. throat too fucked, sorry*
So let’s discuss those words for a second. There is something about this girl that has stopped our guy dead in his rude ass tracks (let’s not forget what he said as he was turning around on the previous page). We’ve all had this moment. That second of “wtf!!! Who is this?”
Me? I’m a pretty shy guy by nature. While I do well now with getting over the shock, when I was younger it was a fucking wrap. If you were a girl that I had an instant attraction to, then your ass would never know (unless you could see my stalkerish stare from across the room). So as always we have more questions. Who is she? Why is Angel so smitten (how often do you get to use that word)? Will he do anything about it? Guess we’ll have to find out Monday. Shit is about to heat up in this flashback. Shout out to everyone who has stuck along so far, it’s time for a bit of pay off.
Til later, lates.
PS: I was looking forward to drawing this particular panel since we started this comic. Why? Because my author notes (to myself) was, “Make her sexy af! Girl’s need to want to be her and guys should wanna fuck her.” Clearly I’m not that subtle when making notes to myself. I’ll try to remedy that or not. Probably not. Yeah not at all actually. Ok medicine time. My birthday is Sunday, all I want is to not be sick so I can draw more comic for you guys. See how nice I am? ZZZzzzzzzzzzzzzz and stuff.
