AMA — Ask Me Anything

I’ve started a new series on Patreon. It’s an “AMA” series also known as “Questions from the Guigarverse.” Here are some of the patron-submitted questions I’ve fielded so far…

“Do you have plans to reintroduce
the absentee characters like Evil Atom,
Dr. Haynus, and Cap’s parents?
Or are they gone for good?
Also, … I remain curious
[about] the decision to remove
Evil Atom and replace him
with the minor player
of Dr. Whoosh.”

“How do Carbon Copy‘s powers work?
Can Carbon Copy copy Elastic Man?
Do they have the same level of powers?
If Carbon Copy copies Conrad, Fireworx‘ husband,
does he have his own stamina…
or Conrad’s?”

— Carbon Copy appeared in EiAD #20, “Copy Cat.”
Fireworx and her husband, Conrad, were in
EiAD #17, “She’s Full of Bull.”

“Is Dragonelle’s tail as prehensile as Desi’s?”

— Dragonelle appeared in EiAD #27, “Try Outs”

“In Evil Inc After Dark #18, Page 7,
is the succubi… outside the janitor’s closet…
an early version of [the] succubi [in EiAD #24?]”

EiAD #18, “Dream Come True” and
EiAD #24, “Monster Hunter”


Webcomics wannabes Dave Kellett and Brad Guigar are talking shop! The guys discuss the monthly Patreon dip — what it means and why you shouldn’t freak out. THEN Dave talks about why he lays out his longform sci-fi comic the way he does. NEXT, Brad argues that reboots are good — and sometimes necessary, and he and Dave examine the best ways to go about it. FINALLY, Dave shares some helpful guidance for anyone who wants to branch into enamel pins.

BUT FIRST, Brad has one more story from his trip to Michigan… the deer with a red tag an its ear, and a warm story in its heart.
