I'm glad you guys like the pink and purple planet! It was the first idea for a planet I had when I first started developing Magipunk - well, maybe the idea for the triceratops planet came first. I can't quite remember.
Comment on HK is All Talk of Magipunk

Of course, HK would never actually overthrow Candy. He just likes to talk big.

On the subject of names: I generally find that introducing names really slows down the pace, particularly in a three panel comic where I've only got a few lines of dialogue to set up the exposition, story and punchline every comic. It's a failing in me, I should be better at it. Even The Orthodontist has a name (we'll learn it soon) but more and more time went past without learning it that I figured it was more fun to have a kind of Doctor Who parody thing going on.

I'm going to make a list of character names that have been revealed. I'll share it with you soon!

And that's the end of that chapter
Apologies to Feanix, but that's the last we'll see of Mr Sparkles and the Martian for now.

Don't worry about that though, they'll both be back before long. I have big plans for both of them...
Comment on Death to Shadow Demons of Magipunk

You guys spotted my little Twilight reference!

Can we talk about vampires for a second? It seems like a solid rule that all vampires are obsessed with their appearance (which must make having a reflection difficult).

They all act tough and evil, but they're all ridiculously focused on their looks. Dracula, Lestat, Angel, Spike, Edward Cullen, the ones from Underworld - it's always all about style. I thought it'd be fun to have a character who completely embraces that aspect of being a vampire.

The Twilight sparkle is a joke poking fun at that, but it's also, I'll be honest, about practicality. Keeping vampires out of sunlight is awkward from a storytelling perspective, which is probably why Twilight vampires sparkle anyway. It's easier to write daytime scenes.

My wife and I have been rewatching Buffy and Angel lately, and it's really clear that the writers often struggled to justify anything involving daylight for the vampire characters.

So yeah, Twilight sparkle. Helpful narrative-wise, and a little dig at the vampire fashion scene.

Ooh, the suspense!

Another comic made possible thanks to Patreon. Seriously, you guys rock hardcore out loud.

Ah, shadow demons. Very friendly fellows, really. Apart from all the soul eating.

This might be a good time to share this with you. It was the prototype for Magipunk that I made back when it was a little more serious and a little less Runt and Candy-ish. It was basically Firefly with magic. Which in and of itself would have been cool.

A big super super duper huge thank you to those who are supporting me on Patreon, it's making a huge difference. You guys are wonderful :) For those of you who are supporting, the super secret blog has a new update with pictures from my attempt at Hourly Comic Day yesterday.

Today's comic is sponsored by Feanix, who is one of my first backers on Patreon!

I literally would not have been able to do today's update without his contribution, and I'm really grateful for it.

I don't want to beg, but really guys, I'm a struggling artist, I can do with all the help I can get, so I'd really appreciate it if you would consider supporting me. The Patreon is tied to my Tumblr rather than Magipunk (far more people read my Tumblr comics) but I really could use your help.

Wohoo! Three updates on schedule in a row!

I guess there are some benefits to having absolutely no proper work to do. Sob.

@Feanix: Fun fact, 249 million miles is the distance at some times of the year (because of orbits and whatnot) between Earth and Mars. I wanted a legitimate distance that didn't seem too big or too small, but yeah, they might have a struggle getting there,
