I was literally falling asleep as I inked this so it’s a bit sloppy but I love the petulant expression that Nigel has in the last panel. Sometimes even if you don’t get it looking pretty, you do get the expression right. I get frustrated when I’ve nailed the expression in the pencils but lose it when I clean it up.
Box of wine! I can’t believe we found a little juice box of wine. I wanted to find a silly straw to drink my juice box of wine from but I never found one. That’s the nice thing about having your own reality to play with. In the comic, I am that cool to have a silly straw to drink my boxed wine from.
Check the back banner. It says “devil’s disregard” in the last panel. On Nigel’s side of the booth there’s a painting of kind of a Cthulhu thing.
I don’t know who came up with Half your Age Plus Seven. I’ve been told that if they’re hot, it can be plus five. Nigel kind of disregarded the plus seven part of the equation.
This is word for word what happened. Though, in comic form, the build up to the punchline is a bit weak so I threw in a bunch of the people that I saw at the convention. There’s a Lincoln Ninja who said he was dressed as something from Aqua Teen Hunger Force. I didn’t draw it clear enough, but there’s a guy with a Mr. Potato Head on his shoulder that had something to do with Portal 2 that I didn’t get until Obby showed me the end of the game. A woman dressed as Ms. Frizzle. And in the third panel there was a whole group as the Oglaf characters! Mistress has a jar with a cumsprite. There’s the female mercenary and the besotted ice queen and the apprentice. Nigel got a little on the Hipster side.
I haven’t actually done a show with Nigel in years. The first few years that I was doing conventions, he was doing the same shows, so he kind of showed me the ropes: sharing crash space, travel, unabashed salesmanship. In the last panel my banner says “the devil’s accomplice.” …well, it will once I fixe the spelling on acomplice.
