Hot Girl & Totally Hot Girl

A couple of years ago, I met a pair of very cute young ladies at a comicbook show, and spent an inordinate amount of time (individually) chatting them up. Sometime during the course of the con I hit on the idea of developing a superheroine strip on these two (very lovely) ladies. That story evolved into Hot Girl & Totally Hot Girl I penned an eight-page strip that sat around until I discovered a very talented artist named Roy Cutting, whose work I loved, and I conned him into illustrating the strip.

Roy got a promo page, and a couple of pages of art, before his life threw him a wicked curve ball and he dropped off the face of the Earth. A true professional, he kept in touch with me, and apologized for inadvertently sandbagging me and tried to beg off the project. I wouldn’t let him do it, and told him that I was willing to wait for him to find level ground. Especially as both gals totally approved the art, and Belkis (Hot Girl) approved the story.

Well, Roy finally does have his feet under him again, and is drawing the story. Below are several pages that he’s already produced:

Is this stuff wicked-cool or what?
