She’s getting there, in her own way.
This has got to be one of the most convoluted, busy-assed page layouts I’ve ever done. Meh, it’s kind of operating on dream logic, right?
And yes, “Heidi” is indeed her non-stage name. The complete roll call for our main two bands when they’re waiting in line at the grocery store wearing their civilian pants is Heidi, Carrie, Courtney, Roy, Clementine, Nick, Dominique, and Mallory. This info has come up in the established canon before, but it’s mostly a rare occurrence.
Bonus obsessive stock-taking: by my count, the only other characters who’ve appeared and been addressed by name are Ian, Stacey, Damon, and Billy, all of which are their real first names (albeit including one who’s not using his real last name).
Hey, all — I’m in the middle of packing everything up to move across the country, which is why I haven’t had a lot of time for comics…but I wanted to put something new up. So: three minicomix today! It shouldn’t be long before I’m back in the groove doing proper ones regularly.
Ian & Stacey drama! Which has…ultimately no impact on anything, probably!
Man, these lesbian-centric comics have had a surprising amount of dude-on-dude action. I think that’s partly due to a relative conservation of girl/girl stuff because it’s generally more plot-significant overall. Related note: I think it’s really, blatantly obvious from the way I draw people that I’m far more interested in the feminine than the masculine…and with these comics, I’m just letting myself do that without reining it in at all, and letting this little world of cartoon bands have more than its share of femin-ish guys.
I’ve got another page in the works that I want to put up this weekend, so: another update soon!
ps: For those of you who share my interests GLBTQ issues and/or bands of the 90s, I wrote this rambling thing over on my barely-used blog about something that really upset me this week.
