Strip 38: Time of Death

Right from the start, we wanted to show some depth to Roger’s character, so he wouldn’t be seen as just another comic relief sidekick. He’ll play a large, multifaceted role in the story to come, so he needs to develop right away, or else the dramatic stuff later on will feel awkward and forced. That kind of thing happens all the time (see Christopher Moore’s novels for reference), and we’re hoping to avoid that particular storytelling pitfall.
