Issue 3 - Ninja Power! - Page 13 - Cult of the Dark Dungeon
« on: February 23, 2016, 09:28:04 PM »


Pretty appropriate for the 13th page of Issue 3, I'd say.

Up until a few days ago, the character named Frost was named Suther, and the character named Rio was named Frost. However, ever since Jessica first drew the characters for the cover, I’ve been catching myself wanting to call the goth with the sunglasses Frost (I think it’s the white hair). Jessica thought the name Suther was too much of a direct reference to one of his inspirations, so we went ahead and renamed him Frost. But then we had a hell of a time thinking up a new name for the pretty-boy goth. Finally, Jessica came up with Rio, both as a nod to a certain pretty-boy cartoon character and a famous ‘80s album.

Sorry for the late reply, I've been away for a few days.

Love the ridiculous race/class designations these guys have. Morley looks a bit bored haha!

I read on the internet that ninjas are hungry, you want some food?

Soooooo goth!

We know a lot of people associate goth culture with the '90s, since the likes of Marilyn Manson and Korn brought it into the mainstream, so we really wanted to make sure to try and capture the essence of '80s goth with these characters. We took a lot of inspiration from goth musicians of the '80s, as well as a few movie characters.

Thank Gygax! Rijst has commented! We were thinking about throwing in the towel due the minimal response this page got. (I'm kidding of course, I don't think we'd throw in the towel even if everyone in the world hated this comic; we love it too much).

I love the juxtaposition between Morley's deadpan face and the fact that he's sitting at a table ready to adjudicate a fantasy game of the imagination.

The phrase "sticks and stones can break my bones" should really be finished by "but so can sarcasm".. ;)

Are you sure you're not British?

Anyway, I had something important to do involving a ring and the Glasgow necropolis.. 8)

I don't know why but "deadpan face" seems to capture it exactly right and at the same time make me giggle like a happy idiot. I'll be looking for a way to use it in my daily speech now..

Between that and "burble," I'm happy to add to your lexicon.
