I’m pretty sure that, in drawing Jung’s UrArchetype Armor, the 80s electric guitar came in as an homage to a guitar weaponed mecha in Gekiganger, the mock anime you see from time to time in Martian Successor Nadesico. But now I’ve convinced myself that there was no such mecha, that part of my soul just wished for there to be one so that I could pay tribute to it, and that wish was strong enough to become memory. If anybody knows for sure whether such a creature is in the show, drop me a note at TheCount@ftg-comic.com or post up on our Facebook so that my mind can be finally and definitively at rest.
In other news, we’ve sent in our application for APE 2011, to be held October 1-2 in San Francisco, so mark your calendars, as it’s likely the next show we’ll be at after that won’t be until March 2012!
