Tidbits and Such: Part 2. January 20, 2010 Posted by Mookie
Here are some more interesting little tidbits and factoids about today's comic, since I enjoyed doing that so much yesterday.

- An alternate exchange between Thuen Gor and Loru Kal was going to go as follows, but Mel Brooks beat me to it:
"Do you care if it falls?"
"What?"
"The Roman Empire."
"F*ck it."
"Hee hee hee!"

- I originally thought the reveal of Adrak's "restoration" came out too corny (and maybe it still did), but ultimately I came around to it. The poor guy's spent the whole storyline covered in disgusting warts, taking the injuries of others onto himself (which certainly didn't help) and missing most of his teeth. I figured he earned the chance to look a little suave. Besides, I inexplicably like the smaller version of his father's beard he's sporting.

- I came up with a few alternate ideas for endings to today's strip, all of which included Loru Kal being the comic relief. In the end, I thought it would be better that he just sit and enjoy the moment in silence.

That's all from me for now.
Rock on.
