So there's kind of a weird history behind this.
For the longest time, I've been considering a side comic, one within the same universe as "Matchu" but still separate, with different characters and settings. Three times already, these ideas have fallen apart and ended up migrating into "Matchu" to give it it's large supporting cast. This is one of those ideas. One I know I've shared before.
The first instance was Nerk and Zoe, who originated from an idea about monsters and aliens being held in captivity underneath Area 51 and plotting an escape, but this would fit more as a one-shot story than an ongoing series, and all of the characters except Nerk served no purpose, and the idea ended up dying out, with many of the characters migrating over to "Matchu", for the better, as several formerly useless characters found roles that will be explored in the future.
Second was S.I.G-N.L the robot, who was supposed to be part of a short story, and ended up making an appearance in "Amber Alert". I'm still trying to think of what to do with him.
Third and last was Gina, detailed above. I wanted to fight for this one to survive, but the problem was it just wasn't funny. I have no doubt Gina has the potential to be a fantastic character, but not one who can hold up a series all on her own. The move to "Matchu" had more positives than negatives, brought Gina out of limbo, and saved me from having to come up with a dozen new characters for Gina to interact with when I have a perfectly good cast of characters right here.
So I guess "Matchu" will probably end up being the be-all-end-all comic for me, and you know what? I'm okay with that.
Now lets see how long it takes for me to cave and throw H.A.Z-E.L in too.
