I’ve spent the weekend designing some crowd filler characters, and I’ve made a quick wallpaper of them. You can find it on my Tumblr.
Is that Reverse Machete?
I thought it was Marcie.
Rachel is right.
Yay! I can recognize faces!
Now see, they’re crowd filler characters, but they’re getting art/wallpapers/merchandising featuring them…
…this is just like Star Wars! And since the best part of Star Wars is buying toys of nameless background aliens, this is actually a pretty awesome development.
I just got sucked into tumblr for nearly two hours because of this post. Curse you, Willis! :shakes fist:
Please say you’ll give them some speaking lines at some point. The second one from the right is just begging for someone to be in her own strip. =)
Second one from the right (Mandy) has already gotten a line! I can guarantee you that Marcie on the far left will never get a line, however.
Has she ever spoken?
Once. She won’t in Dumbing of Age.
She’s a mute?
She has muteness.
Does sign language count as speaking?
Holy Shnikes, Willis. What’s that girl on the far left eating? Entire barrels of BGH?
What, no pink/purple hair?
I guess someone has made some different life choices.
Pink/purple hair works in a record store in South Bend. Ha ha ha ha ha, no, there are no record stores. She was eaten by a dog.
The barefoot one kind of freaks me out a little…
What? No Shaggy? :p
The red-headed tomboy NEEDS to become a character. I just love her design. DO SOMETHING.
Is… the read headed tomboy not.. Ruth? No freckles, but she has the exact same glasses, similar hair color, similar green shirt, and even shoulder straps as the Ruth picture in the character page.
I guess the haircut is off, and she actually looks happy, but…
I loved squad 48. Please bring back guns she was spunky and fun. If you need a story line for the squad a women sexuality group organized by Roz could be interesting.
Holy crap, Tootsi got a name!
In my personal canon that Marcie is the same character as the Marcie from Peanuts. And if we’re importing characters, then Mandy could possibly, at a stretch, be a grown-up Peppermint Patty. Their poses in this wallpaper indicate that Marcie has grown to shun Sir in her independent, skateboarding college years, and is supported in her resentment by this ‘Sierra,’ but Peppermint Mandy doesn’t care, or is at least putting up a good front.
My Brain is Boiling.
Is it wrong that the song Sk8ter Boy popped into my head when I saw Marcie?
