Here’s Amazi-Girl’s “model sheet.” This is all she wears, so there aren’t any alternate outfits to show you. Well, okay, maybe eventually she’ll get some arctic gear or Tiger Force deco, but we’ll save that for later.
Originally Thursday and Friday’s strips were combined into a single four-panel strip. But after finishing it, and realizing this was how I was ending my Thursday, leaving me with no idea how to cap the week off with a Friday, I decided to go a different direction. I drew some extra panels and expanded the one strip into two, prolonging the doubt as to the vigilante’s identity, plus providing a few extra beats for Danny’s reaction. I think it reads a lot better! Plus we got that extra day of people trying to hammer out whether this was Sal or Amazi-Girl or, uh, Faz.
Definitely glad I got that last panel of Danny in there at the end. It wouldn’t have supported a Friday strip all by itself! My retooling gave me the timing I really wanted.
Anyway, this strip is the last one in the first Dumbing of Age storyline. Monday starts “Uphill from Here,” featuring everyone’s first day at classes. Fans of my older work might yet see even more familiar faces.
Okay, you guys don’t get any more guesses as to what the arts and crafts junk is for.
This is a hand-sewn prototype of the Dina Dino Hat. Our roommate Jessica’s sewing machine cord went missing, and since she felt so guilty about that putting a damper on our grand late-night hat-making plans, she put our prototype parts together the slow way. It definitely wouldn’t hold together very long, but it holds together long enough to take a photo and show it off.
I’m thinking on the real one, I make the teeth a little more cutesy and less dagger-like.
