You had a thread on your last message board regarding your notions as to how you created the Leporid character names. I just wanted to let you know that I love the name "Bing Bu." Its seems to combine everything you look for in comic book level science fiction -- a throwback to the kind of names you had in the 1930s movie serial days (e.g. "Ming the Merciless"), while playing to the exotic, oriental concept and aura you are obviously creating for him. It also sound sort of like something Lucas would use in Star Wars. Yet, its obvious you don't take yourself too seriously, as it has that childish ring to it as well -- I seem to recall a children's song that had a refrain of "Bing Bang Bu."
Its these little creative nuances that show you're thinking deeply and developing your stories well.
In addition, the story line you are currently setting up is very thought provoking. I look foward to watching it unfold.
And by the way, my Sammy the Hammy maquette is still a great conversation piece as it sits on my desk. Its a little beat up (I knocked it off my desk and it bounced around a bit, causing a few of his "hairs" to be shorn) but he's still going strong.
Keep up the good work.
