Halloween17FillerPart1.png

It's that time of year again...!  Halloween is here, and my heroes are in costume.  For the first time in a while, I'm just drawing my main three.  Getting back to basics.


Making it a two-parter was partly out of necessity; I've been busy with job stuff and trying to crank out quality Inktober drawings (I've gotten a bit behind; I'll try to catch up during the weekend!), so I've had less time to devote to my comic than usual this week.  So, I decided to begin the Halloween filler a bit early, and split it up between my 10/21 and 10/28 updates.


As usual, my characters tend to follow certain themes while deciding their costumes.  Belt Boy always dresses as a superhero, but has yet to wear a single DC or Marvel costume.  Cannon always wears a costume that allows him to modify his helmet (He has spares).  And Titanium Maiden always dresses up as a redhead.


With the new anime My Hero Academia gaining popularity, I took notice.  One character, named All Might, appears to be a perfect costume for Belt Boy.  They're both blonde, often shown grinning heroically (and both often do so to hide their weaknesses), and wear an all-American red, white, and blue color scheme as a nod to many famous American superheroes (such as Superman, Captain America, and Wonder Woman, among others).  Only thing All Might is missing is an awesome cape.  Belt Boy always pulls off superhero poses, and I thought that showing off his specialized entertainment center remote deserved such a pose, especially in his super costume.


Cannon is dressed as Shovel Knight from the video game of the same name (A game I own, but have yet to beat.  I highly recommend it, though).  As a major consumer of nerdy media, it's no surprise Cannon would dress as a video game hero, nor is it a surprise that he's amassed such a huge Halloween video collection and organized it.  For the record, the two musical movies he's referring to are Rocky Horror Picture Show and Little Shop of Horrors (Unless I missed any good Halloween-appropriate musicals?*).  While I watch a lot of Halloweeny movies this time of year, Cannon can probably stand much scarier movies than I can.  Most of what I watch this time of year is animated (Like Nightmare Before Christmas... which I guess counts as a musical too.  Maybe he categorizes the animated musicals seperately...?)  or a spooky comedy (Like Ghostbusters).  You won't catch me watching something like Nightmare on Elm Street; that movie scared the crap out of me when I was a young and impressionable.**


Titanium Maiden's costume is a bit esoteric.  While looking up redheaded characters to dress her as, I found a picture of a bunch of redheaded Disney characters, and in there was Pepper Ann.  That seemed like a good, nostalgic fit for her costume, so I did a google image search, and found an image of Pepper Ann's superhero alter-ego from the dream sequence in her opening theme montage.  This version of Pepper Ann seemed like an even better fit for Titanium Maiden, mainly due to her physique being a darn good match for my comic's heroine.  So here's Titanium Maiden as "Super" Pepper Ann.  By the way, a good number of those pizzas are for TM; while she tends to eat normal-sized lunches, her Amazonia physique burns a lot of calories, so she eats some sizeable breakfasts and dinners.


Anyway, expect part two next week, readers!  See you then!

*A side note: Cannon's not a big fan of opera, so don't bother mentioning The Phantom of the Opera or Repo! the Genetic Opera.
