This is always the part of big company meetings, or even reunions, that suck.  It really doesn’t matter how well you’ve been doing, you’ll always run into someone who wants to undermine your efforts.  You could have conquered half the civilized world and you’d run into that kid you sat next to in History class who will sneer, give a half-smirk and say, in a slightly nasal tone, “Pffft!  Only half?”

The only thing that makes it slightly more tolerable is the great equalizer.  The “Hello, my name is…” sticky tags.  No one looks good in those.  And if you’re like me, you will make up a name if you’re given the chance to put in your own name.

Make sure you check out the bonus comic… that one came with a lot of blood, sweat, tears, and a slight tantrum from Courtney.

    Indolence looks about ready for a nap, hehe! And Infection kind of reminds me of the viruses from Dr. Mario. Coincidence?

    I really like the lighting in that middle panel.
    Also, it seems our main trio has forgone the nametags. Rebels!

  9. Kiriel

    No.. no.. the nametags just happen to be on their butts ;3

    @DktrAgonizer – Our Imps could well have had the same problem I always encounter at such things. Whatever I am wearing seems to repel the stick-part of those labels.

    Whatever the case, it is certain NOT that I forgot to write it in the script that they should have labels and no one else picked up on that as the strips were being created.

    Though it could be that we as a creative team, holding our readers intelligence in the highest esteem, assumed you would all know who our Imps were and it was a storytelling shortcut …and that would make our staggering underpaid and underappreciated letterer’s life a little easier (he has things hard enough, living under the stairs, chained to his desk and fed scraps that fall from Courtney’s plate… he doesn’t even get any props in the BTI strips).

    It actually looks like indolence and ignorance have there name tags help by a clip….or maybe duct tape…hard to tell from this angle. But pain has also been messing with angels, and they did set fire to the neighbors car…but you would only know that if youd seen the Special Edition Director’s Cut.

  12. Courtney

    @ Tegger: I’ve only seen the Director’s Cut, and even that was hard to stomach. But the Special Edition Director’s Cut? That must have been epic! I’ve gotta find a bootleg copy. 😀

    @DktrAgonizer: You are 100% correct. The imps are indeed rebels. And in a sense, I guess I am too. After all, I did ignore those directions in the script. And come to think of it, I never wear my badge either. Ever. 😀

    OK, let’s set this thing to bed before we have another flame war like the famous LPI Flame-Out of ’97 that crashed the entire interwebs for three days.

    The Director’s Cut, The Special Edition Director’s Cut, The Special Edition Cut, The Special Cut, The Special Director’s Cut and The Special Director’s Special Edition Cut…. All out there. Some bootleg. Some unauthorized (like the Allan Smithee Cut), some with questionable provenance, even the one Courtney and I will reluctantly admit to….

    NONE of those are considered series canon until George Lucas says they are.

  17. Sicarius

    *cackles* Warms the very cockles of my heart to come back from vacation to a new comic…especially one that features an imp named Ignorance…always wondered what s/he looked like…and Infection is just so cute that I want to kick him/her into a concrete wall…

    …Really, it’s a compliment…*nods*

  18. comichero
