I’m not going to lie… this wasn’t the strip I intended to do for today.
I had an idea the day before and when I sat down to do this, I had totally forgotten it. I’m hoping I piece it back together in some form for next week, so instead I just got John off of the toilet.
The fact that the elf, who I’m going to call Mistletoe, was a huge Hunter the Zombie Hunter fan has been one of the parts that I wanted to bring into this arc, that’s one of the reasons for Hunter’s return… When Satan was asked to help out with the Zombie Santa bit, the elves found out about Hunter’s eternal damnation and they asked for him to be a part of the operation… as a public face or what have you.
Also, this has nothing to do with the current story, but in thinking and discussing John’s character with other creators of late… I’ve realized I’ve made him too much of the loser character. This has to do with making sure he’s not a Mary Sue character, but I want to make him more relatable and “win” more than he has in the past. So, that’s something I’m going to work on… I just wanted you guys to know it’s something I’ve been thinking about.
