In the middle of writing this week’s City of Angles update, I found myself needing a name for the actual, factual mayor of the City. Because it’s worked well for me in the past (Dr. Kit Hearth being a tribute to Kit Flowerstorm and the Pop Culture Social Club) I turned to my readers to name the character.
Enter Mayor Jefferson Keys, a tribute to DarthWiggles. Long may he reign. Well. He probably won’t, but that’s not entirely his fault.
I wouldn’t be where I am today without my readers. Readers helped back the original vol//001 Kickstarter. Readers gave me the critical feedback I needed to steer this ship true. Readers supported me and encouraged me when I felt like this whole thing was a going-nowhere fiasco. Readers are the reason why art exists; the Mona Lisa is just random chemical paste on pressed fiber if nobody ever looks at it. You’ve got my thanks, and I hope to entertain you through this last volume of CoA… and beyond.
For now, enjoy the doom squad setting jackboots to pavement in City of Angles with this week’s story update. I THINK next week will be the finale of this particular chapter, but I’m not sure. We shall see. After that… we might be returning to the world of Milly and Lucas, despite them ‘winning’ the “go away” question in my recent survey. Trust me. You’ll want to see them again, when you find out what the Citadel is doing to generation zero.
