1188 Brave New World.


Okay, if you guys seriously want an Everyone Is Raindrops shirt I’m gonna need some feedback about what you want it to be like. I’ve never had any luck with shirts, so there’s going to have to be significant support shown for me to bother messing with it. So, let’s hear some ideas.

While I was working on these pages I decided to try an experiment of sorts. I took Monday and what was finished of Tuesday and showed them to people who contacted me on skype. Then I asked what they would they do if it was their comic. It was interesting. A lot of people were totally paralyzed by the scenario. Especially if they revealed themselves as dedicated fans. Strangely, the most detached people had the easiest time answering, and the most complete answers. Happily, at least from my perspective, no one exactly nailed what was going to happen. One person came close, but it’s hard to exactly guess what a given person will write. Also, I like to think I have a unique way of presenting this fairly pedestrian work.

Anyway, this seemed to be what Jo wanted. I’m not going to lie, I second guessed it, but ultimately I let her take her chance. For the record, my mother was a bit heartbroken that Jo couldn’t stay a pure, in her words, character. I suspect she won’t be alone in that. Ultimately characters have to change and live, in so far as the fictional can. So here we are. In the rain with them.
