At this point, I’d mention very gently that, with a religious fundamentalist character, a robot character, a Capitalism-obsessed character, and an artist that happens to be myself involved in a drama involving xenobohobia, Pandemic panic, and drug trafficking, I might be trying to say something about something more than just a few cartoon animals. Of course I wouldn’t venture to say what exactly I”ve been trying to say, how successfully it’s been said, or anything like that, because none of that’s my place. I just want to kind of nod in that direction in case some people are wondering if they’re right to be reading all of this at a particular level.
It’s fun for me to finally get to this stuff, because I’ve known for a while now what was going to happen to Capitalist Pig when they cracked him open. I’ve also had an idea for a while what those two characters would do with the money, and what the fallout of the might be, so stay tuned. I actually have the vague outlines of a pretty epic long-term storyline for these characters, as well as knowing quite a bit about their history before these current comics, so it’s fun for me to finally see some of that coming out. Yep. I don’t plan to abandon the one-off strips, either, though, so this storyline stuff will hopefully be threaded throughout and who knows how long it’ll take to finish, but enjoy the ride.
