Look, I’ve fixed it in the archives!
Anyway… Steve Yoh, or the unfortunate copy thereof, is very influenced by Rimmer on “Red Dwarf,” a show that apparently made a deep impression on me. If I’d ever drawn more Edie strips, I wanted to have a storyline where the original Steve visits the satellite for some reason and it’s just incredibly awkward for everyone involved. I’m still kind of sorry I never got the chance to do that.
As some people guessed in the last installment, I chose Argo as a nod to the old, much-embellished-upon filk song “Banned from Argo.” 512 was named after Andrew’s birthday.
For the Edie strips, I experimented with typed fonts. They look really awkward, and I still letter by hand to this day.
