Issue 4 - Rad As Hell - Page 12 - Mobile-Rexus
« on: August 26, 2018, 12:21:33 AM »


We decided to give Roborexus an updated design since his first appearance back in issue 1. He was originally a throwaway reference/homage to the transformer Grimlock, but since we’ve decided to feature the little robo-dino a bit more prominently, we simplified his design to make him easier to draw and not such an obvious riff off of Grimlock.

But we don’t plan to go back and alter the design in his original appearance. We’ll just say that was a prototype build.

There won't be a page posted next weekend (Labor Day weekend here in the US), but the comic will return with a new page on Saturday, September 8th. And it'll be one of my favorite pages of this issue so far.

Does Trance have the makings to be this comic's version of Tony Stark!?

Whoa! Jessica just pointed out to me that she forgot to add the pattern to Corey's shirt. She'll have to fix that once I can tear her away from working on a newer page.

Oh, I'll probably be laboring too. But Jessica will be going camping with a lady friend of hers, which is a totally great setup for a horror film.

Yeah, if anyone is the SN8X Tony Stark, I'd have to say it's Trance.

I hope Trance just keeps calling it Roborexus.  It has a much nicer ring to it than Mobile-Rexus.  Also, if Trance is like Tony Stark, does that mean he's going to build a high-powered suit at some point?  Furthermore, I'm pretty interested to see where Heather's fascination with Satan Ninjas leads to.

Oh, no worries. He was only joking about calling it Mobile-Rexus.

I won't say it's not possible. However, I'll just clarify that we didn't base Trance on Tony Stark at all. He's more based on the character Data from The Goonies, with a bit of Chris Knight from Real Genius, among others.

Furthermore, I'm pretty interested to see where Heather's fascination with Satan Ninjas leads to.

There's a lot more to Heather than most would guess. There's definitely some stuff we're excited to eventually reveal.
