What do you do when a guy says he wants to have a “ghost night” with you?

I’m really excited. Part Two is going to get a lot bigger and personal for Petunia. I hope you’ll enjoy where this goes.

I’m not sure if there’s a lot of Petunia in me. I try to prevent my characters from becoming too much like anyone, especially myself. Still, I think it’s impossible not to add a little of yourself into your stories and characters.

When I outlined Petunia as a character a while ago some of her defining characteristics were: motivated, loyal, and serious. I guess I would also add romantic and damaged to that list now…

I really wonder how other people interpret these characters. I don’t think I’m really pushing a lot of their traits town your throat, am I? Someone told me once that they all seem pretty normal, despite the weird stuff going on. I suppose that’s good! I want them to be relatable, but I also don’t want them to be boring. Let me know if you have any feedback.

OH, and I really want to know what people think Petunia’s eye and hair colors are. I heard one interpretation and was very surprised. I guess that can happen when a comic is in black and white.

I try to put a lot of hidden hints and “Easter eggs” in the comic. Some of them you may have noticed, but there are a few that you probably haven’t. For example, there are some small tributes to my family that I have put in.

Agent Jack PowellJack is sometimes used as a nickname for John, which is what my father was called for many years. Also, Powell was my mother’s maiden name.

NickNick is my brother’s name! By the way, none of these characters look or act like anyone I know, even if names are inspired by them.

Ryan Chiropractic – Petunia’s new office is in the same building as Ryan Chiropractic. I threw that in there because Ryan is my wife’s maiden name (and now ONE of her middle names :P).

There are many more, which I may outline in future posts!
