By now it’s been more than a year since this was drawn. This early version of Sawtooth looks a lot different from how I’ve been drawing him lately.

Got nothing else to add. Too damn tired. More Stygian silliness on August 1.

Morning After Edit: I am bright-eyed, bushy-tailed, and I do have a few things to add!

1.) We probably have C.S. Lewis’s Screwtape Letters to thank for our little demon’s appellation. I wanted something that had the same ring as “Wormwood” and “Screwtape” and so came up with Sawtooth.

2.) Speaking of books, the electronic edition of my book is now only a paltry $2.99. Who are you to resist? It will help you escape the oppressive heat of summer by freezing your heart.

(I had first typed “it makes fantastic beach reading,” but then wondered: do people tote their Kindles to the beach? Wouldn’t the device need to placed inside a special [and fashionable, and customizable, and not inexpensive] hermetic sleeve to prevent the sand from finding its way inside and clogging its tiny gears? I’m so out of touch.)

3.) Manos: The Hands of Fate has been made into a smart phone game. YOU’RE KIDDING ME. I may need to borrow somebody’s iFone for this.
