Happy Halloween everyone 🙂 Here’s the final page of my Halloween comic, but don’t worry if you missed any of it since there will be a full retrospective posted here later tonight 🙂
Surprisingly, the final panel of this comic was the most challenging to make. Since, even though I used the same materials that I used in 2012 (yes, before this blog, when I only used to post webcomics on DeviantART) it was surprisingly difficult to draw the kind of “bad art” that I used to make back then, since I kept wanting to draw it using my current style LOL!
And, for those who are wondering why only Derek recognises Rox in the final panel – she made her first appearance in December 2012, but there was also a prequel comic (which can be found on page two of this gallery) featuring Derek and Rox when they were at university. Ironically, it’s probably more well-written than some parts of this comic were, although the art looks really old though. And Derek’s surname is apparently “Goff” (I’d totally forgotten about that. Yes, he used to be more of a goth).
And, yes, this page is also a subtle parody of the alternate ending to “Army Of Darkness”. Ironcally, when I first saw this film on ex-rental VHS when I was a teenager, it had that ending (I think that the canonical “Hail to the king” ending was only included in US releases). So, for quite a while, I thought that it was the “official” ending.
