TOACM_Color Guide_MulvenyOver the course of the past year I’ve been asked more and more often about the histories/back stories of Joey, Mulveny, M’htrew, Squid-Girl and the Felon Fighters, etc. While I’m always equally shocked and delighted that readers new and old show such interest and curiosity about these characters I find myself dolling out the same general answer…stay tuned—you’ll see.

The fact of the matter is I do have the histories and fates of these characters thought out. Not that there isn’t some fine tuning to be done along the way, but where they’ve come from and where they’ll go is something I’m constantly developing and exploring. The problem is time. I simply don’t have enough of it. I’d love to be able to tell you more of Squid-Girl’s story or elaborate on Escape Goat’s past, but I don’t like the idea of doing so in spite of the Checkered Man’s present. This is his story after all...

So a thought occurred to me. Perhaps I could write a series of 1-4 page comics solely centered on the supporting cast of TOACM. Perhaps I could scrounge up some of my dear comics-making pals to draw these stories. Perhaps...

So I ask of you dear reader...are you interested? Would such a “companion” book be of interest? I’d love to know your thoughts. Please sound off by leaving a comment to help me better wage the interest of such a venture.

Thank you, and we’ll catch you back here Wednesday for another all-new comic strip—you will NOT want to miss this one!
