Hey Folks. I thought I might have to throw my hat into the ring as a human being as well. I'm BJ Cooper, the guy who writes the acid trippy strips. I also do occasional legal and clerical stuff. I never, ever bring coffee. <P>I think it's great that we have a board, if only so I can be distracted from whatever else I thought I was doing. <P><P>------------------

Actually, Rumy is based on T himself ... that gets into all manner of Freudian stuff that I'm not gonna go into here. ^^; But when I first started reading the comic (back in print), my first thought was "Hey ... little freshman, anime-obsessed girl, gets crushes on artists, likes to kick stuff ... that's ME!"<P>Although the college is based on my college, and the club is based on my club ... but the genesis was well before my time, even though I've got a hand in the newer stuff.<P>I'd personally like to see a Fans!/ConScrew crossover sometime. EH, T? Come on, I know you read this.<P>And I await your e-mail eagerly, O Mighty Vader. <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspace.com/forums/wink.gif">

As Assistant Lord-High-Muckymuck of <I>FANS!</I> I have to say I'm all for a crossover. We have (and will continue to) piggybacked on more established comics, and it would be nasty and vicious of us not to return the favor -- particularly as Kara and Ben are wonderful people who are holding some of my stuff hostage.<P>Gregory Eatroff, Editor, <I>FANS!</I><P>------------------

Oh, and Katherine shouldn't be too hard to get to an anime convention. There are plenty of midieval-themed pieces out there that would appeal to her, and her interests are a little more varied than she's been given credit for. Remember, they sent her in to negotiate with the Saccharine-Siezure-Beast Customizable Card Game guy. She had to know enough about that piece of anime-inspired brain sucking (bitter? me? well, maybe a little...) to keep the guy convinced she was on the level until the rest of our heroes sprang into action.<P>------------------

At least I did laundry.<P>Anyway, as far as I can tell this Crossover thing is a go as soon as we're comfortable with the level of development of our own cast of characters, which will extend a bit beyond the triad of Emmy, Adrian, and Mimi (and the famous cameos, of course). This of course probably means that I'll have to spend a couple more days reading and re-reading <I>Fans!</I> to internalize what it is that makes it great, then wed it to <I>ConScrew</I>, which will be fascinating.
I hate not being able to say more, but I've already scripted a lot, and it would be bad of me to ruin the next three months for you. Keep reading; this only gets better.
