This is one of those pages I think of as flavor pages. The details these guys are arguing about aren’t hugely important in this stage of the game, but it is sort of important that they’re arguing, you know? Things aren’t rosy, politically.

This was another one where it was fun to design all the extras. I think my favorite is the fiscal hawk with the bouffant wig and powder pink suit, because hey, a guy can care about national debt AND look fabulous. (The fellow on the far right is a shout-out to Daveed Diggs, while “profane our remains” is one of the many lyrical, charming turns of phrases I picked up from Deadwood.)

Next week: third main character!

The next update will be Monday, April 17.

(Oh, one more quick note: I generally reply to all the comments on Sunday afternoon/night. I’m sorry it takes me so long, but between work and trying to get pages done, Sunday is usually my catch-up day.)
