This comic took a while to produce. It introduces the character Diabla into my life. I struggled with how to handle this particular chapter for a long time. Initially, I thought about drawing Diabla at one size and then progressively enlarging her (Art Imitates Life). I toyed with the idea of making her human and slowly adding devil features. Then, I decided to retcon her out of my life’s story. That leads us to her current incarnation as a puff of demonic smoke. The other character is actually the guy who introduced me to Diabla. For many comics, I have created a friend character and used him for most of my college interactions both to provide some continuity and because it was less work. This one needed more verisimilitude. This comic is exactly how it went down. Ulrich and I were headed to physics lab at 2:30 and ditched to go party.
