The lineart for this was done on a tablet, not on paper, so that's why it looks quite a bit different. I had lost my eraser. I hope I find it before next Wednesday. I love that eraser.
I'm glad you guys liked Joe, I guess. He was conceived of only to die so I didn't think I'd put too much character design into him but maybe I did. Alas.
We can always assume that he didn't actually disintegrate his head but sent it to another dimension so he can show up again at a later day with a gigantic steam-powered golem body. See, you can BS bringing any character back if you really need to.
We did not do a filler because I lost my eraser. We decided to do the filler before that. A lost eraser is no reason not to draw a comic. I would have just gone out and purchased another one if I needed it.
It's okay if you don't understand why I'm clarifying this, but trust me, it needed to be done.
