Maark30 commented on the last comic: “And now we will finally get the answer to Who’s Afraid of Virginia Wolf…”
Now, you are not going to believe this, but…
I did not think of Virginia Wolf when I named the character!
At least, I really don’t think I did. I’ve been developing this comic for about four years. The only reason I named her Virginia (that I can remember) was so at some point I could do a story called “Yes Virginia, there is a Frankenstein”.
I don’t think I COULD have named her after V.W. because originally SHE WASN’T EVEN A WEREWOLF!
She was an asian girl, which you see with their adoptive white parents quite a lot here in NYC (and everywhere of course).
As a child of a mixed race couple it’s something I always notice, and something I wanted to represent in my comic as an example of another modern NYC family, though due to the nature of my comic, it’s represented in a weird way (like everything else).
The character was designed as a normal asian girl (though nerdy, like most of my characters). Then, right before I was about to actually draw her for the comic, I thought “wait a minute- you know what would make her even more interesting, and appropriate for my comic- why don’t I make her a WEREWOLF!?”
And I did, and I like her that way. But the Virginia Wolf thing? It’s such a staggering coincidence, I can’t believe I didn’t do it intentionally.
Anyhoo, next comic we get back to some NAUGHTINESS! But it might not be the kind most of you might like. Then again, if you’re reading this comic, maybe you will!
