Boy oh boy oh boy, did that last panel take a long time to draw - but man, was it worth it. Not satisified with merely hanging out on Valentines Day, the combined forces of Cosmos and Curse Quest teamed up to carry out one of the other key traditions of any multi-character crossover: taking on the forces of (clearly unprepared) evil in a no-holds-barred fight scene! I can just imagine the aftermath of the battle, as the Demon hordes limped back to their mighty overlord:
"You are the Demon Hordes of Rastuflaxx!! How did you let that pathetic rabble beat you?! How!?!"
"Master, please! They had Cosmosians with them!!"
"COSMOSIANS?!? Oh-- Okay-- Well-- never mind, then."
While it was great fun coming up with a diverse menagerie of monsters to populate the Demon Hordes (and colour / design-coordinating their armour and weapons), the most difficult parts of creating that final panel were A) figuring out where each hero character was going to go (so they were all evenly mixed together, had enough elbow room and no-one was fatally obscuring anyone else), and B) making sure I didn't forget to put anyone in! And with 6 Curse Quest guys and nearly 12 Cosmosians, that wasn't an easy job....
