A very reasonable thing to wonder, Brendan. Many other readers did, too. :V

Sulla's propulsion system is pretty loosey-goosey and has always been more of a metaphor anyway, but it's relatively quiet and powered by hydrogen fuel cells. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Here's Sulla! Aside from sharing sounds with the name "Alastair," "Sulla" is the name of a female robot in the play R.U.R., from which OHS and Chapter 1 both get their titles.

In retrospect I think this is the meanest Brendan ever is to Gimel! I guess Brendan has a reputation for lacking grace under pressure, but jeez.

Panels 5 and 6 are still some of my favorite lines of dialogue I've ever written. Talk about economic! storytelling!!!

At this point I had NO idea Gimel would be such a spiritual backbone of the story. He was almost window dressing at this point.

The Pinsky house interior! Lots of concrete, lots of chrome, lots of blackboard paint, something that looks spendy, cold, but not unlived in.

I tried to nail down their height difference early, though it's not as consistent over the comic as I'd like. They ended up around 5'8" and 6'1" - Brendan's eyes at the level of Al's mouth.

Speaking of voice actors, though, Al is easy. She has always sounded like Ron Perlman.

And here's Brendan. I'm curious what he sounds like in readers' heads - for me he always had a boyish Michael J. Fox-style voice, maybe with a bit of Anthony Rapp thrown in.

The Pinsky house! I made some drawings and digital models of the interior for future scenes - the first few of which can be seen in Volume 1.

Do you think Al’s officially an Aquarius, post-resurrection? (true answer: she would think astrology is fake, which is so Sag of her). God, robot astrology would totally be a thing, wouldn’t it.

The bluff the Pinsky house sits on is a creative liberty I took - Minneapolis is pretty flat. I’m also pretty sure that’s the Metrodome in there, which would cease to exist a year after I drew this page.
