Bonus Comic #3

The Tangential 100th strip pre-celebration continues!

So what’s up with this little piece of comic history?

If you’ve read the ‘About’ page on here, you noticed that I also help design games for Eye-Level Entertainment. Before I joined the Killjoy crew I did four vignettes featuring characters from one of our games called ‘Nature of the Beast’. This was the fourth and final one, as they weren’t really drumming up the buzz we had hoped (at least for the amount of time I put into them).

While I was drawing these one page comics, Todd had started Killjoy Comics and invited me to join them. It took a while, but eventually I took him up on his offer. My only regret is that it took so long to say ‘yes’!

Those ‘Nature of the Beast’ comics were invaluable experiments in coming up with a style that I could sustain. If you look carefully, you’ll see some residual influences on Rat Tangent still to this day. In fact, interestingly enough, the two little rodents would serve as the very inspiration for Lab Rats! So this is where it all began!

More stuff coming next week!
