Haha, guess what? This comic is responsible for my obsession with dolphins being evil! Like so many other elements of my comics, it started as a one-off gag that I decided to reference later on, until the whole thing spiralled out of control and suddenly dolphins were the the terrorists of the sea out to kill everyone.

This is actually the writing style that I have traditionally used: just making shit up as I go along. The idea of actually planning a story out beforehand, as I have done with CI 2.0, is a relatively recent development. It’s kind of like buying a car, and then a few years later, deciding to attach a steering wheel. It makes life a lot easier, and everyone else is like, fucking hell, no wonder you kept crashing all the time!
