They’re the biggest rock band in the world, but their manager Zander thinks they spend too much time on their side gig as amateur sleuths, and resorts to drastic measures to keep them in line…
Originally, this comic was a one-shot I had plotted out parodying the old Josie & The Pussycats
cartoon (alongside all other Scooby-Doo
rip-offs from that era) with the initial idea simply being "how do all those wacky adventures affect their ticket sales?" However, the idea was put to the side in favour of other projects.
Then the publishers asked me to team-up with Mac Rome
on some projects. The idea was to create a couple unique comics between us, and experiment with rotating writing duties between issues to see if that would speed up the process at all.
After the first series pitched fell through, I presented my "expanding female rock band detectives" concept to much success. The only problem was that my pitch was a self-contained one-shot with very little left story-wise for the continuation. Mac then suggested making his issue a prequel to mine, specifically crafting a plot to set-up my script. Collaborating by e-mail while separately writing individual issues, the two of us were able to craft the series in amazing time.
Then the scripts sat, waiting for the perfect artist.
The one originally considered for the project vanished from the Earth shortly before the scripts were turned in, and the publishers had no suitable substitutes in mind. Months later, we approached popular expansion-fetish artist TLink
with the possibility of drawing a comic for the site. There were a couple potential projects on the table, but I made a strong push to stop waiting for the other artist and submit both Annie
scripts to him for consideration.
Thankfully, he said yes, and I got to see one of my favourite fetish artists bring my script to life!Written by: and Lineart by: Colors by: Cover Logo by: Studio GFXAnnie & The Blow-Up Dolls 2 is now available at this link!
