So, when I decided to randomly toss swirly psychedelic colors all over the last page, it wasn't supposed to actually be happening in universe. It was just gonna be one of those dramatic effect things... But naw, screw that. Now the robots Trigger tampered with are literally shooting blinding rainbow colors everywhere... SOMEHOW. I mean, all robots in this universe are clearly designed so that their eyes change color whenever they turn evil, so maybe Trigger just tapped into that?

Also, new Voting Incentive with more costume swapping fun!

WOW this one is late. I'm really sorry, guys. I can't even blame this one on convention preparation or whatever. It just took me forever to get started on this page, and even longer to get finished. Measures will be taken to ensure this doesn't happen again.

At least I can say I like how this page turned out. Seeing Layla go all Mama Bear to protect Trigger is always cute. The second panel underwent a weird creative progression: At first, the plan was for Trigger to have felt a trail of plain ol' deactivated robots... but since Stilez was already trashing robots and everything else in the place, it didn't seem like that would stand out much. Somehow, the solution was glitchily sing Beatles songs. Because of course it was.

Anyway, if nothing else, at least I got a new Voting Incentive done on time. That's SOMETHING, right?

Oh, I dunno. There's still plenty of time for Trigger to get into/have already gotten into/be right in the middle of some more mischief. :)

Well, everybody's been wanting to see a little Trigger-sabotage-action, so I had to oblige eventually!

So, there's a new Voting Incentive but it's... um, is only half finished. Like, I was gonna color it, but I had to get it loaded up on TWC before midnight or it wouldn't have gone live until TOMORROW. I'll try to get a more finished version up tonight... which mean you're now encouraged to vote TWICE! MWAHAHAHAHAHAAA!!!

EDIT: I finally got the colored version of the Voting Incentive up. If you already voted on TWC yesterday and only saw the black & white version, be sure to check again! ...though, if I may be so bold, please wait until it's been a full 24 hours since your last vote. Gotta make every look count! :)

I know that feeling all too well, friend.

To a certain extent, I get it. Like, we had to do Awesomely Bad at 11am on Sunday, which is a sucky time, it was in the biggest room. Last year, they gave us an evening time like we wanted, but had to put us in a smaller room because the Big Deal Events had dibs on the big ones. It's a no-win situation, and I get it.

...but this year kind of took it to an extreme. Putting dinky little music panels like ours at the crack of dawn? That just doesn't make sense (and ours wasn't the only one to wind up in weird slots like that)

Oh, it was worse than usual this year, by far. When you factor in the WIND that was going on that weekend, it was SOOOO much worse than usual.

Basically, we could have built a second podium out of all the bottles they put up there.

Yeah, I'm sure plenty of people can volunteer all sorts of horror stories that happened to them that I just wasn't there to see... but that's the thing: that crap happens at every con. A disproportionate number of Katusons, however, have been distinguished by crazy mishaps so widespread that EVERYBODY experience them (like horrifying snow or being in too small a venue or sharing space with a... difficult second event) Just having the usual level of problems was a change of pace.

Anyway, THERE'S THE KATSUCON COMICS! There's a lot to work out about future conventions, but I need sleep RIGHT NOW so keep an eye on the Facebook page or the tumblr for more info.
