I’ve been waiting for years to put these new robot characters into a comic. One of the nice things about really sticking with a comic like this is that I can basically cannibalize the concepts I’ll likely never use. The Actioneer was this close to being the main character of this comic – with a different title for this strip, of course – but the Crimson Claw was too dang great of an idea to shove to the background. Kaley is basically an entirely different comic concept, and the new bots we’re about to meet were part of that comic. Heck, I even attempted to get that one published through Zuda years ago, but nothing ever came of it. Oh, well.
Ideas come and ideas go, but it’s so much fun that so many of them end up right here.
