Being a parent is one of my favorite things in the world, but I completely understand how some people would feel just the opposite.

I’ll admit this was kind of a long way to go for a King Missile reference.  The song’s been stuck in my head for weeks and I was hoping this would exorcise it.

Deviant Life Anniversary #1

Standard

FIRST / PREVIOUS / NEXT

The anniversary of the first Deviant Life strip coming out was actually yesterday, but because Deviant Life artist D. White and I have those nasty things called day jobs, this had to wait until today.

Working on Deviant Life for the last year has been great fun and I really appreciate all the love and support the strip has gotten.

A friend posted the question of what furniture I’d want to come back as. My initial answer was my favorite female singer’s sybian, but I thought it would be more true to the Deviant Life spirit for it to be my favorite porn star’s instead.

Deviant Life isn’t the first time D.White and I have worked on an online comic project together, as we’ve been friends for the better part of three decades. The world has only seen a tiny sliver of the stuff we’ve created together since we met in seventh grade.

A long, long time ago there was Roth & Earl, a comic about a redneck and a goth being roommates.  Sadly, I didn’t really know what the hell I was doing back then so it never got much of an audience and most of the strips have only survived my lack of organizational skills in terrible resolution messes. I really loved those characters, though, and had been thinking about working Rhianna into the cast already when D. White suggested we do a triple-size Deviant Life/Roth & Earl crossover for Deviant Life’s 25th strip.

Rhianna and Roth’s Sadistic/masochistic dynamic had been mentioned a few times throughout the Roth & Earl strips and it was established that they weren’t entirely monogamous either so Rhianna joining the cast wasn’t any kind of stretch for her character.  I was also looking for a way to establish that Bernard was a switch so it just seemed natural to make Rhianna and Bernard an item.

I could probably count on my fingers the number of people I know who remember Roth & Earl, so really this crossover is pretty self-indulgent, but I also know that a bunch of those who do remember are going to squee hard over seeing these characters again. I just hope those who don’t know these characters still enjoy it too.
