This is a design test for more detailed characters. Sometimes chibis just don’t allow you to do or show certain things (like giving someone the finger, for example :) )
So you might see this style show up more where needed–especially in the soon-to-be-restarted Stupid and Insane Defenders Against Chaos comic. We’re working on a new prologue to that comic, to help make a bit more context for it’s universe. And expect to see some of this style show up in both books for both comics–which we promise will be out this year. Yeah, with this and Intervention planning it’s going to be a rush of a year.
