I am very happy with this week’s Project Poppet strip. I used Manga Studio 5 to lay it out as opposed to Photoshop. For a time, I used CS4, but the bulk of my archive consists of comic strips laid out with Photoshop 7, MS Paint and some affection for my late, great Compaq Presario laptop, purchased in 2003, replaced this past January.
The idea for the story came from my friend, Bev. I had posted a photo of a pink Deadpool, which was created to challenge the statement that there is nothing inappropriate with Deadpool. She looks at the photo and asks if he was the result of a washing machine mishap. I then tell her that I will make a comic about it…I was a little late doing so, but here he is! The best part of the story to me is that when Pinkpool came to Pittsburgh Comic Con with me, a little girl that wanted to dress as Batman fell in love with him.
