I'm sure many of you saw this coming a mile away, but it was still a lot of fun to draw this fun reveal of Gregory's new band. As usual, I played a great deal of heavy, aggressive, maybe even "explosive" music to help me get the inspiration for today's comic. My muse was totally headbanging.

My favorite part of the comic is likely the tiny, crummy drum set that Taz MaDara is playing. I originally drew a bigger, more impressive drum kit for him, but when I was a teenager with dreams of "making it" with my own rock band I played in a rehearsal space that provided guys like us with tiny, crummy drums. Taz's tiny drum kit is totally on purpose and an homage to those days of my youth where our drummer, who was a big, lanky dude, was cramped behind a tiny little drum kit.

If only I'd known about the "circular headbang" technique back in those days. My neck wouldn't nearly be as sore today.

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