Looking back on the earlier parts of this comic, I realized how much was shoe-horned in. There were certain ideas and designs I had in the beginning that I was determined to put into the comic at some point. One of them was Ralph, one of my oldest original characters. The other was the little green triangle on Maqqy’s forehead. In hindsight, neither of them needed to be in the comic, but I really wanted them to be. Ah well, lesson learned.
