And as for the comic…

I want to make it clear that that Sin-ee-os just taste like original sin. Daphne is not compromising her eternal soul by eating this cereal, no matter how delicious it is. (Or to be more accurate, she’s not compromising her eternal soul any more than it already was before this.) Besides, if we’re going to be theologically in line with standard Christian doctrine, you’re born with the blight of original sin just by virtue of being human. Then again, I’m not sure whether Daphne qualifies as human.

Let’s just all agree that this whole comic is doctrinally confused and inaccurate and leave it at that.

I seem to keep spending inordinate amounts of time designing different elements that become barely visible in the final image. The Chinese dragon on Phoebe’s top? Hours of work. Ditto the cereal box design. Oh well. C’est la vie. I’m firmly of the belief that someone out there somehow appreciates these things, even without totally being able to see them.

As for this comic…

On the topic of Phoebe’s room, I had a lot of cool, crazy details that I wanted to work in, but the panel size, angle and general composition of the strip made it impossible to include them or have them fully visible or recognizable. Such details included:
-a Victorian birdcage full of feather boas
-even more useless drapery with lots and lots of tassels
-some sort of stuffed tiger
-lots and lots of mirrors with gilded frames
-a Klimt print
Okay, maybe not the last one, but the rest are good ideas. They’ll have to wait for future comics, I guess.

And as for the comic…

Puck wasn’t the only one who didn’t know Colin’s last name until now. In preparation for this one, I had to give Colin a last name. Then, about a week ago, I suddenly developed a strong hunch that he already had a last name, and that it was stated only once on the old website or in one of the old comics. I also seemed to remember that it was ‘MacTavish’ (or ‘McTavish’) but I couldn’t prove anything. After carefully poring through all of the available documentation, however, I found that no last name had ever been mentioned for the poor guy.

So one glaring hole in the continuity has now been addressed. Though I don’t think it was a hole that bothered anyone, because I never once had anyone ask what Colin’s last name was. It seemed fitting to me that Puck never bothered to ask that question either.

Upon seeing this comic’s visuals, my wife’s eyebrow raised. “That’s a whole lot of argyle,” she noted.
“Too much argyle?” I asked.
“For me? Yes. For Puck? No.”
I guess that means I’m on the right track.

@gamekidg7: Yeah, I'm not even sure Vilgax pulls it off. But he comes the closest to making it work.

As for this comic…

Those of you who have been through the whole archive will know that this strip marks a rather rare alignment of the stars: never have Phoebe and her father actually been featured together in the same panel until now. It had to happen sooner or later.

On another front, those of you who are familiar with Hamilton (a small number, I’m sure) will recognize Satan’s house as Dundurn Castle, one of the more famous landmarks in the Hamilton area. In reality, Dundurn Castle (really more a super-huge mansion than a castle) is owned by the city. It was built in 1835, and it’s tricked out in period furniture and décor. It’s a great place to tour, get wedding photos, or get you Downton Abbey mojo going on. In my alternate reality, I guess Satan bought it from the city and turned it into 18,000 square feet of evil luxury.

As for this comic…

Some babies don’t vomit all over you like this, but most do. My first child was a puker. Just looking at this comic brought back many bad memories for my wife of trying to wash baby puke out of her hair. The smell doesn’t really wash out; it only fades with time.

The sound effect in panel three is mostly just for convention, by the way. In reality, most baby pukes are silent. You have no warning.

As for the comic, this marks the start of a lengthy (and hopefully entertaining) story arc that’s bound to take us into uncharted territory. I don’t want to spoil the surprise, but I can definitely say that this story arc will bring more Satan (a perennial fan favourite), among other things.

Upon seeing this comic, my wife asked the usual “What the hell is Phoebe wearing?” question, which immediately tells me that I’ve hit upon a winning outfit. And no, I have no idea how it stays up. Glue is my best guess. I also have no clue how she operates a touch screen with gloves on. As mentioned in previous strips, she’s a girl of many talents.
