ABOUT COMICS AND CHARACTERS|
When my friends and family see my stuff, they often say that they recognize Jemma
from somewhere, and it's no wonder, given that she's inspired from so many other
characters. At first sight, she might look somewhat like a clone of Kei from
Adam Warren's The Dirty Pair, and what looks are concerned, she has much of
Kei indeed, though it's quite coincidential.. I first made up Jemma and Gehenna
before I had even read The Dirty Pair, but maybe they have formed after DP later..
Other influences for Jemma is Kaolla Su (the jumpyness and the surname as a
little wink) and Mitsune Konno (slackerism) from Love Hina, and not
least Clover Conelly from Chynna Clugston-Major's excellent comic Blue Monday.
Strangely enough, Gehenna has no real influences of that kind... but then I'm
fighting to make her more of a lead character instead of the sidekick, too...
A webcomic with really great characters is PockyBot, arted and crafted
by my online buddy //c0ry. Featuring no less than futurepop, 80's retro gaming,
tofu, squishy giant penguins and wacko kids in a random 3am hit mix, this webcomic
is unlike anything else. Be sure to check it out.
And finally, for you three people in the world that are actually reading this
comic, and possibly the rant too, I have a special treat for you ^_^
I've gotten my hands on a real goodie, signed idol cards of Jemma and Gehenna!
