A little while back I was surprised when I paired Conrad with Marie for a strip about our Kung-Fu Priest. What struck me as odd was how Marie, who is no stranger to working an angle for her own benefit, went right along with Conrad’s over-the-line fawning over his new pastor. As a creator it’s not uncommon to have mental snapshot of each character’s personality constantly floating about, but it’s great when that snapshot brings about an answer to question you didn’t expect. These two characters have very devious sides to them that seem… unholy… when brought together.
So, no stranger to bringing interns along on press-checks myself, I thought I might explore this dark cavern of storytelling a bit further. My mind is already reeling of possibilities.
