An Unexpected Hero Vs. Her Moment Of Glory

Ok — here comes a better accompanying post for this one. I just put up a placeholder late last night due to being undead-tired.Things of note:

Something cool and unexpected happened in the comment thread for the last page, in case you missed it: a reader named Trisha made a video tutorial for doing Venus Destructo eye makeup! Makes me want to try it, too — if I do, I’ll post a picture.

I think I’ve mentioned before that I grew to really like Stacey as a minor character — she’s like this high-spirited underdog with questionable judgement — so, here’s her moment to Be The Hero. Ya did good, Stace.

Bonus trivia, which I’m sure anyone local has already noticed: I have a little theme going on where I like to use streets in Vancouver as BVB characters’ last names. It’s not universal, just a few of them…I’ve already used Hastings, Davie, Cordova, and Alberni, and have several others that I like the sound of  picked out for future use. It’s partly the fun of a theme, partly out of city-love, and partly just thinking that it’s a great name-set.

Sorry that this is so late! I swear, the last five percent of every comic takes up about half of the total production time — I always find about a hundred little details to correct.

In this world where just about everyone has a campy stage name, I think Mascara Masque is my favorite one I’ve come up with. And just for the hell of it, here she is not angled into the perspective of the wall.

Turpentine Vs. Phone Etiquette, Round 2

Kind of a lot of text in this one — but hey, the text in these is fun to do.
Additional notes:

• Man, Foxy Monoxide is becoming a real contender for the constantly-changing status of Secretly My Favorite Character. She’s so easygoing.
• The first draft of this, before being cut down for Way Too Much Text, had Turpentine following up this “CLEMENTINE” bubble with another indignant question about how come Honey knows her SECRET REAL NAME. The answer (which was not in this dialogue) is that Billy The Reporter spilled it on at least two different occasions.
• As you may recall, we first saw Hair Streak Red Skirt Girl back here. The way I originally had it written, she had a rhyming line in the subsequent song — but then I ended up totally reworking it, and her one line got cut. I think this one’s an improvement anyway.
• Looks like it’s finally time to stop having to keep track of everything these guys drew on each other with markers. Onward to more band adventures!
