PAGE SEVEN. A couple more interesting characters added this week. I see this as sort of a Guy Ritchie moment. The frame freezes (easy enough to do in a webcomic) and you get the little bio on each character, possibly to the accompaniment of gunshots.
So you have a rebel leader, a smuggler/music producer, and a pirate* playing poker while listening to the Sisters‘ demo. Can’t be good. And keen eyes might’ve spotted the shipment Shanti is talking about on the last page…
In other news, if you haven’t checked out the two pages in the MarsNet section, I encourage you to just do it. I think it is some of the best character design Nic has done (or anyone for that matter, but I’m biased). Remember these bands; they’ll be back. Hell, these could be our first two spin-offs!
Lastly, just a couple words about Chicago Comic Con. I’m not going to use this site as any sort of opinion platform, but it strikes me as sad that Marvel, DC, and Dark Horse don’t actually go to Chicago Comic Con. That said, I talked to some very cool people and the Artist’s Alley was the unequivocal highlight of the con. I’m thinking, by next year, the Sisters Grimm will need a table there. There or C2E2.
Finally, if you’re the Tweeting kind, we’ve been doing some exclusive Twitter pics/previews. I wouldn’t want anyone missing out.
