Plot mover AND the insinuation that the Warden is a) a racist, and, b) doesn’t realize that racism isn’t cool. Also, a perfectly good Spanish word has been ruined forever.
The side headlock in panel one was a lot of fun to draw, and I think made the page a little more interesting than just Doc and the Warden talking. Although the Warden’s awkward cough turned out better than I was expecting it to.
Fun facts about current projects: A pitch for a British magazine resulted in me learning that Canada and the United States are the only two countries that use 8.5 x 11″ paper dimensions instead of A4 (8.3 x 11.7″). I could probably just go out and buy some A4 paper, but I found a whole bunch of Legal-sized paper in my basement so I measured out borders on it and got to work without having to leave my house. Becasue that outside shit is scary. I also learned that I really like turning “nothing” moments into action sequences (I do it a fair bit in my print series, Hell, Inc.). Hell, Inc. doesn’t lend itself to combative action like HEAT does, so I have to find action in other places. Like putting toner in a photocopier, or hoping the elevator shows up before somebody you don’t want to talk to gets there.
On Saturday: Off to Prison Asteroid 17E. And yet another homage to Bobby “The Brain” Heenan.
