October 28th Commentary...one mistake

Postby thePOTS on Fri Oct 28, 2005 3:48 pm

Well,

It wasn't the FIRST mistake in the series, and I KNOW it won't be the last, but how many people realized that Guy's last named changed?

I don't know if it was an error on my part, but Chapter 2 was actually written before the #0 portion (the first 23 pages in sequence), so somewhere I changed his name...or that no good (kidding) Crosby did while lettering the story...

I think it was me, so I take blame for it...hopefully its the only time we make a mistake THAT big...there have been a few editing errors, but that happens everywhere...this was the first big mistake I saw.

His last name should be BANDREWS...
Take Care,

Can't you just go and edit it?

actually,

I don't letter or post the comic to the site. I probably have one of the sweetest deals on Keenspot, as Chris actually takes care of everything after the writing and art is taken care of.

I realized that I made the "error," but it wasn't an error after all. Even though Guy's last name is Bandrews, in a very 1980's Incredible Hulk way, I had him enter the hospital under an assumed name that the mysterious figure knew...since he's one step ahead of everyone.

Since Guy seems very Hulk-ish anyway, reading on former emails that I had sent around, I found that my "error," wasn't one after all.


Weird but true.

Here is some more Landis trivia, I came up with the name Bandrews based on the influences used on Guys character. Like;

Bruce Banner + Archie Andrews= Guy Bandrews.

I was so proud of that, I laughed to myself for days. Pretty lame huh.

Although looking at it now his name should have been Bruchie Bandrews.
Ah well. :)

If you'd like, I'll fix it first chance I get. Sorry about that. I actually had a "hmm, something isn't right" feeling as I was lettering that balloon, but I couldn't put my finger on exactly what was wrong with it.
