A panel from page 5 of my unfinished comic "Revenge iNC."

I thought up the opening scene(s) while going for a walk at midnight. It fits with the continuity of the character, but probably not with this particular story.

That one guy in panel 3 (bottom left) is EVERY guy college student (I'll draw his female counterpart on the next page, probably). He's out of shape with a neckbeard and has to spread his legs as wide the fuck apart as possible to take up three seats, and he has to wear sweat pants or pyjamas because EVERYONE at college is a total slob. He claims to be a communist and yet is never seen anywhere without icons of capitalism like an iPhone, Starbucks cup, and a Che Guevara (or Soviet flag) T-shirt.

The professor is based on my old boss when I worked at a museum. He's cool.

I don't know why but Melanie's hair is always lopsided.

I ended this page on sort of a cliff-hanger because I'm really busy and it will be probably a month until page 2 comes out.
The background is an abstract piece I did called "Exhibition in D & A". The portrait of Melanie I did in 2014 and I still think it's the best drawing of her I've ever done.
I'm thinking about hand-lettering this comic. And by hand-letter I mean I'm going to do all the letters once and then copy them over and over on every page. I call it Lydia Sans Serif version 2.0. Version 1.0 was created by moy in 2006 and it looks like crap. I like to think this is a huge improvement.

Question: Why not do all the ASCII characters?
Answer: You know, I thought of that, but I can't really see when I'll need any other characters. These will suffice. I've even added a few that I'm pretty sure I won't need just to be safe.

There are probably a whole lot of problems ahead with doing things this way, but at least for now it seems readable.
Last night I was despondent over the fact that every story I've put poor Melanie in has failed to take off. So I decided to throw caution to the wind and write about her lost year following the band Iron Belt.

I drew this sitting in a cafe in one hour.
