Poke around online, and there are heated debates on the subject of whether Canadian Coke is still using sugar, or if they’ve switched to corn syrup like the U.S. has been using for ages. To be safe, drink Mexican Coke.
This storyline is full of hard things to draw (see first panel above), but the one I consistently fail at is phones.
This came out looking almost exactly like I wanted it to, which is pretty impressive given the stuff I had to draw. Any time I did a crowd scene of the androids, I got sick of drawing Madblood over and over. And yet I kept doing it! In retrospect, it’s good that I did, because a bunch of screaming Madbloods getting attacked by a giant beetle on top of a semi is awesome.
This strip doesn’t really have much of a punchline, but it’s okay because I drew an awesome explosion in the second panel. The art on this week of strips is pretty darn good. I must have put extra effort into it so I’d get all the robots and trucks and things looking okay.
I didn’t like this one when I first wrote it–I put it in just to move the plot along–but reading it now I think it’s pretty funny. Also, I did a nice view from the top of the semi in the first panel. So good work, me. Man, there’s a lot of good stuff in this storyline, given that I made it up as I went along from the abandoned pieces of previous storylines.
I had a whole backstory worked out to explain Dave’s past and why Bill is like that, but it was too angsty so I never used it. I hate it when webcomics go for cheap drama, so I tried not to do that if I could help it. It’s too easy and no fun. So, yeah, we never find out exactly what the deal is with Bill. Also, Dave’s mother never got to appear in the strip, but that’s probably for the best.
Of all the things that are easier to draw in silhouette, which is basically everything, semi trucks that have been damaged by giant robots landing and/or exploding on them rank pretty high.
I always enjoy endings where people learn dubious lessons, but the best part of this strip is Dave worrying that he let someone else drive. Rental-car places really put the fear of God in you over that.
