Hey, look who it is, standing next to Tim there! Like Swallowtail before her, Victoria made her first appearance in an earlier and rather forgettable comic, before being brought back into the fold at a later date. Unlike Swallowtail, however, her eventual characterisations were actively informed by her debut (the idea was that she wasn’t just the type of person who would volunteer to appear topless in such a comic, but she would actively seek out such engagements – and I just built up the rest of her character from that starting point). She’s in this comic to foreshadow her appearance in the next one, but I’ve actually set that one aside to be redrawn for CI 2.0.

By the way, that is my actual dog there – and she really does have powers.
