People have been asking me since the comic started: “How does she get her hair to do that? Is that hairspray? Magic?”
The answer is: she gets it from her mother.
And hey! It’s Friday the 13th. Go watch a horror movie tonight. I recommend Phantasm, because that’s a big influence on Locus and my work in general. I saw this movie when I was 9 years old, and it’s left an indelible mark on everything I write and draw.
My kids are in their late teens and early 20s right now, and I showed them Event Horizon when they were 8 and 13. Phantasm, too! Everyone needs a traumatic horror movie experience at a young age. If you have children about this age, tonight’s the night to introduce them to the irreplaceable and life-improving experience of Surprise B-Grade Horror.
Don’t deny your children this precious gift! If you do, they’ll grow up to be automatons under the sinister control of the Disney Corporation, and you don’t want that shit, man.
And if you’d like a custom-sized super-cool computer wallpaper of Locus’ monster face in panel 3, drop two bucks on my donate button up there! There will be a place to enter a message–put your screen resolution in that message. Otherwise, I have to email you and it takes longer to get your wallpaper to you.
I’ll be selling this wallpaper today only! I’m working ahead this weekend.
