I am really proud of that kitten’s tail.
Cats in general are weird, endearing little aliens, so trying to figure out how they work enough to draw them as characters in a comic is definitely a new experience. While I was originally thinking about who might live in this small town, I was debating whether to include anthropomorphic animals, or simply have normal humans. But I think this iteration probably works best. You can see another side of Matt’s personality, too, which would probably never have shown up if he was talking to, say, a jackal-headed man.
(The other side of his personality is, of course, a shitlord. He’s not always timid!)
