Last night I started working on a new three-panel comic that I think I’ll make web-able staring Flint and Ravik. They’re kind of like the “Odd Couple” but more polarized as ‘good’ and ‘evil’ rather than ‘neat freak’ and ‘slob’.
I’m sure they’d rather not be roommates but they’re sort of stuck and simply have to deal with one another. 🙂
It’s also easy to come up with a continual stream of material as they’re always going at it with one trying to “convert” the other or simply just annoy them. Flint is by nature “good” and doesn’t really *try* to do anything to Ravik, but his general outlook and innocence are enough usually to get old Ravik foaming at the mouth. Ravik on the other hand is always plotting to do something to Flint, but Flint somehow manages to bumble his way though it… They say someone looks out for innocents and children and Flint is walking proof.
Fortunately they gave up fighting one another openly years ago as neither could make any headway against the other. So now it’s a sort of grudging co-existance with little feints and dodges at one another rather than open warfare.
And they have been rubbing off on one another over the years. Ravik’s quiche addiction is Flint’s fault, just don’t ask what’s in it. While Flint’s like of techno is Ravik’s fault though Ravik is more “Icon of Coil” and “Delta 9” where Flint is into happier stuff like “Scooter” and “Apoptygma”…
I don’t want to kill myself on this project though so don’t expect to see a comic but maybe once a week. Maybe I’ll do an inked one on Wednesdays and a color one on Sundays… We’ll see.
Ahh yes, making the most of your psychosis… (laugh)
