As I mentioned in a blog post, I came up with a new look for George's hairstyle. I based it off of Luke Skywalker's windblown mop from "A New Hope" since George is the big Star Wars nerd. I really like it and think it's a step up from the spiky pompadour that George has worn up until now.
When I was drawing the comics since I did the character design work where George had the different hair, I've wanted to change the hairdo, but I wasn't sure when the best time would have been.
I had thought about doing it after a major event or have him keep it after he dressed up in costume or something... in the end, after suggestions from Lar deSouza that I just do it, I did just that, I just did it and this strip is the result.
I wanted to update John a little too and I've been having him be a little scruffier in the hair/beard, but I gave him the long sleeved shirt under the t-shirt look as I'm able to add another color to his palette. This gives both main characters long sleeves and I think that having them both with that length is beneficial.
We also get more shown ass. Enjoy.
