I don’t remember how, when, or why, but Helen’s personality being informed by middle-aged white women whose personality has never stopped being “drinking” has given me so much more material than I ever expected. Helen is one of a handful of characters who didn’t exist at all in the original black and white Hell, Inc. comics (I haven’t mentioned those in ages, eh?) but who I now actively seek to include in scenes because she adds a specific kind of energy that the other characters don’t bring. An extremely chaotic wine goblin energy.
Shane Lees is Employee of the Week! He has launched a new webcomic, Tales of Abuse, which you can check out at his website. With Hockeypocalypse: Slashers concluded, Patreon patrons are going to be getting a new graphic novel serialized soon, but first, starting in August, you’ll be seeing the remastered for print version of the first Rent-A-Thug story published in over a decade, La Cosa Glasnostra. I drew the entire thing in Webtoon’s vertical scrolling format, so reconstructing it into printable pages has been a challenge.
