Ah sorry about that! It didn't even cross my mind that the Stations of the Cross might be a Catholic only thing. I find your discussions about the bible really interesting so I thought I'd throw that question your way in case you had some insight on it. Since that's out the window, can you instead recommend some books regarding the Historical Jesus? I didn't realise there is factual basis for him, I'm curious to know more.

Start with anything by Bart D Ehrman!

Random Easter related question for you: Is there any significance to Jesus specifically falling three times during the Stations of the Cross? As a kid it always seemed odd to me that his falls are specifically noted and numbered. Is this just so we feel sympathy for him? Meant to humanize him just prior to the crucifixion? Or is there meant to be a deeper meaning behind the three falls (Somehow referencing the Holy Trinity?)

I have no idea what that is.  Is that a Catholic thing?

I really am trying to diversify my own stories. It’s hard, and I fuck up a lot, but I keep trying. Webcomics can be a really tricky medium to bring up big real issues in, since the pacing is so slow. I’ve introduced several threads and conflicts into my stories that deal with this stuff, that won’t be resolved for years, and it leaves things up in the air, unsettled, for a long and uncomfortable time. I’m constantly examining how I’m portraying my characters. I’m acutely aware that if I write a group I’m not a part of, I have a serious responsibility to not add any grief to them. And despite that pressure, and despite fucking up, I would never avoid writing more diverse characters because it’s something that needs to be done, and as I was talking about earlier, readers are hungry for it.

Every single time one of you writes to me with a story about how you related to one of my characters in a way you weren’t getting from elsewhere, I feel a sort of weight on me, but I don’t dislike the feeling of that weight. It keeps me focused, keeps me working hard. All I can do it be better than I was before. I appreciate when you guys give me feedback, tell me when I’m doing good or doing things that could be better. You guys don’t have to be patient, and yet you are. That’s so cool.

I really hope I can keep expanding my characters in a way you find exciting.

did that motherfucker really have his OWN PICTURE on Air Force One?

It was to remind him who he was, as he’d increasingly forget.

Have a bunch of Daisies. 

TRIVIA: Her name is Daisy because she originally wore daisy dukes.  Her last name is Conrad because that’s G.I.Joe Duke’s real first name.

Daisy needs to get some so bad that she’s started checking out her previous character model.
