Notes from the Bludhouse
Oh, so much to talk about for this strip and so little time.
Let's talk about Blud Clot, or rather, his YOUNGER self, Youngblud Blood. YBB first appeared in our black and white noir series back during the original Just a Little More Blud run. Because it was all grey tones, it didn't give me a lot of colors to work with. Hell, I don't even remember if that was a comic that I even worked on. Jon did a few of those himself to save on time.The only time Youngblud Blood has ever gotten any colors is in a piece Jon did for the Outhouse. This was one of the OH's old banners where a bunch of Salwen created super-heroes waited in line for their turn in the Outhouse bathroom. YBB hid behind the thing like a creeper and all you could see was his face and a hand.
You can tell in that small image that his face and hand are flesh colored. I decided not to follow it. I'm a maverick.
What I did take from it was his hair color that differs from Blud Clot's and probably confuses everyone. I figure Blud Blood was such a douche that he made Youngblud Blood color his naturally blonde hair to a more of a light brown because the blonde was too awesome and distracted from how great Blud Blood was. And that's the story I'm sticking with.
You'll also notice that Blud Blood's piping is colored red in the flashbacks. This is because back in the first year of JALB, that was the color of that piping. I changed it for the second year of JALB to that grey-blue color that I kept for the current series. For this flashback, I went all retro.
All this and I worked six days this week. I'm amazing.
That's Youngblud Blood's first appearance.
And, no, I didn't color it. That's all Jon.
