My friend Halcy0n stepped in to do a guest comic during a hiatus in the middle of Chapter 4.

LIII: Futile, But Satisfying

Posted by on March 24, 2008
Production Code: UTC053

Cass needed some kind of victory in this chapter, no matter how superficial. Cold-cocking Morty was the least she could have been allowed to do, given the circumstances. It’s my hope, if someone in the distant future makes a list of The Greatest Moments in UTC, that “Cass Knocks Morty the F**k Out” makes it into the top five.

For about the first two years on the website, the sound effect of the punch was “BAM!” I changed it to “POW!” shortly before making the trade paperback because I really, really didn’t like how “Bam” rhymed with “plan”.

LII: Tail Talk

I hadn’t given Thirteen much to do in this story, until this opportunity presented itself. It seemed like the perfect chance to add some humor into the situation.

LI: Going in the Wrong Direction

The transformation scenes are still shorter than planned, because now there is a larger plot. At this time, I felt that glamorizing the transformation process ran the risk of cheapening the overall story.

Transforming Cass a second time was motivated by my dissatisfaction with her character design. I wanted to make some noticeable alterations, and because the series focuses on physical transformation, the look of the characters is at the forefront of a reader’s mind. So I came up with a story reason why Cass would look so different.

This is still one of my favorite pages of the entire series, even looking back on it six and a half years later.
