I mean… I like it. President Gorilla. He's a Gorilla, but he's also the President. You know? That's the hook. We think it kinda sets him apart from other Gorillas. Unfortunately, the other two offerings - Songs of Sorcelation: Return of The Returner and WHEEL SAINT - are probably gonna win, and even more unfortunately-er for the longsuffering and bedraggled Sorcelator enthusiast, I think Wheel Saint is one of the coolest things we've ever done. But we'll give you an opportunity to choose (wheel saint) later this week.
It's been really fun to get back into the pitches, which is where a ton of our favorite work comes from. It's been a while now, but things like The New Kid, Automata, and even Lookouts - which means Daughters and Thornwatch emerged from the same inspiration.
There's something weird about these. While these comics obviously take way more time to draw - because they're, like, three comics or some shit - they take way less time to write. The writing task for every one of these was a fourth or a fifth the time of a three panel strip. It's way more work for somebody, probably Mike. But all this motherfucker wants to do is draw. Well, draw, and get truckloads of merch from some of the world's most respected companies. But those are the two things! So if we've made something cool, it simply isn't the same mental environment. He might even ask to write early, in abrogation of a nearly twenty-five year ritual, just so he can draw it more.
