Today's Comic

Almost Was

January 12, 2016

Before we start off, Joel Watson of Hijinks Ensue and Sharksplode has started a new project, Cartoonist Draws on Trailer. Give it a look.

Also, Danielle Corsetto of Girls With Slingshots and my convention wife is offering something new on her Patreon. For backing at the $20 level, through April, you'll get access to a light version of the same illustration class she's teaching at Shepherd University.

Welcome back to Old Familiar Faces, Day Two. I decided to bring back Celie (who no one ever asks for) and Cora (who people still ask for).

Cora hasn't shown up in the comic since the end of 2004 beyond being discussed in... 2011, I think. She was a really popular character and a lot of people wanted her to stick around. For those who don't recall, she was an actress in the doomed production of "Shock Treatment" Davan was to direct, a show that fell apart when it came out Ollie had never secured the rights. Out of that mess, though, Davan met Sanderson. Also, Cora showed interest in Davan but he wasn't ready to move on from someone else quite yet.

Cora, incidentally, almost became who Davan ended up with. About mid-2005 I came up with the idea of Vanessa, but I still wasn't sure I was going to use her. I actually toyed with the idea of Davan and Cora meeting up again years down the road, in very different places in their lives, and giving it a shot. In the end, I just liked the character of Vanessa too much. When she showed up in 2009, I found out I wasn't alone. -R.
