Yeah, about that "brief side project" thing... there's no way this doesn't clock in at 40-60 pages.

Wildebees is a veteran of the Ostrich War.
It seems that she is nowadays not very fond of ostriches, due to an almost lethal encounter with one during that time of her life... (It left some scars.)

I love the ToyCo HQ building CG did here!
(But I would hate having to work in an office behind one of the windows entirely covered by the ToyCo logo.)

Mercenaries!
There is Wendell, but... I think we haven't yet been introduced to those two other very friendly looking fellows behind him...?

CG's original projection for this comic was 10 - 20 pages. So, yeah... :-D
(I don't mind obviously, considering how interesting and entertaining it is seeing him handling my characters!)

Ah, yes, the storyteller's curse.

For some reason, I can't help but think about the "bounty Hunter scum" line from Empire Strikes Back when I see that last panel...

And I absolutely love this project, btw.

Also, I about spat my off-brand Mountain Dew at "ostrich-loving".

The goons are ancillary, just like everyone other than Boba Fett in that one scene. We will be bringing in a familiar face shortly, however, and giving her some actual dialogue.

Haha I clicked the link and there is an ostrich actually!

But of course! Why do you thing it was called the "Ostrich War"? ;-D
(My original inspiration was a real life occurrence that has been dubbed the "Emu War".)

That's all well and good but the sun will never set on the Cassowary Empire

"Dirty, Ostrich-loving mercenaries" is a phrase I never thought I'd read!
... or enjoy so much!

At that point, I had just shortly before nailed down the first tidbits of Selene's backstory.

Little did I know what that will kick off...
