@aqua the hedgie @RazorD9: you guys just came up with a way better story idea than what I actually have planned!

I don't know what Colonel Valentine's motivation behind his somewhat odd collection is, but apparently he's very lazy, as I'm fairly certain there are more slices of cake on a table at the other end of the ballroom.

This comic is late because of Good Friday, but it is here. So that's better than nothing, I guess?

In a deleted scene, Candy describes how she then moved on to Pin-The-Tail-On-Runt's-Ex-Girlfriends, before the fight properly started and they got kicked out of Burger King.

This comic is dedicated to RazorD9, who picked up on the Colonel's odd phrasing in the last strip.

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.

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...

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.
