It's not often that a comic gets a major reworking (or is out-and-out torpedoed) once it makes it to the final art stage, and is on the cusp of being inked in, but here that's exactly what happened. I drew up the pencil art for 'One fine day in the stockroom', inked in the panel border, went to start on the actual artwork; and thought "Yehhh.... thisjust ain't working." While creating a giant fort out of lever-arch files and calling it 'Fort Foolscap' (as you put foolscap paper inside said files) was an interesting idea, it simply wasn't.... crazy enough. In addition, only Zoe and Leon were going to have any dialogue, with Toby, Jenny and Myra - shoved off to the opposite side of the panel - simply working away on the fort and not contributing a thing otherwise. Hence version 2: building a giant, mutant frankenstein pinata out of a whole bunch of other pinata sets? Now THAT'S crazy! And swapping Myra and Zoe around gave Leon someone REALLY sarcastic to get mocked by, and allowed Zoe and Jenny to swap some truly bizzarre banter....
