THE WEEK IN TROUTCAVE COMICS
- Patreon supporters have gotten to read several pages of my canceled Molly comic! If you support Troutcave Comics on Patreon, you too can claim such fabulous rewards.
- Carol met John the Baptist, as well as John the Baptist’s beard. Then she took the Ice Bucket Challenge.
- An ambassador from Sparta arrived to greet Lysistrata, and she was mighty indeed.
It’s Molly! Molly’s one of my favorite characters, and not just because she originated as an author avatar for Lit Brick. She’s relentlessly cheerful and perky, unless you somehow manage to awaken the beast inside and see her furious temper. Molly, by the very nature of the strip, usually takes a backseat to the comics she’s theoretically drawing. As such, I’ve never really told a real story with her. That said, you can still learn a lot about Molly simply through Lit Brick itself (an obviously love of literature, a passion for classic rock, a bent towards absurdist humor, etc). While I’m clearly the one drawing the comic IRL, I’ve made an effort now and then to draw the comic in-character. Which is to say, Molly’s opinions in the strip don’t always reflect my own.
Anyway, I’m rambling. When MESS first began and it was an anthology strip with short chapters, the action was going to occasionally jump over to Molly so I could flesh her out a bit more. It never quite worked out, however, so she’s stayed confined to the background of Lit Brick for now.
Lit Brick is back, on a daily basis, for what is probably a fairly limited time. I was in a mood yesterday.
