This is it. This is the story where Kota’s World changed and became sooooo much more than it was before. Two things happened before this. First, that last page made me realize that Kota and his series were every bit as valid as the other things I’d planned over the years. Second. I read Understanding Comics. It is no small thing to say that the book changed every single thing about how I made comics. I took more risks, I tried harder, I wrote better, and I actively tried to improve my art. I think that’s going to come through in this chapter. This was where Kota’s World became what it could be.
Oh! Remi got a haircut and contacts.
Sounds like some hasty BS to me. I shouldn’t have aged her. I also shouldn’t have kept her around. She should have left. I have this terrible habit of collecting characters. I’m sort of the anti-George R. R. Martin. I can’t stand to kill off a character. One of the great things about the new series, when it happens, is I can sort of cut down on the cast and those that I keep can get more attention than they did in the original series.
