I hope you enjoy this Wednesday’s short!
The title for Foot in Mouth Disease is a play on foot and mouth disease, which was one those health scares that happened in the mid 2000s, like SARS, west Nile, mad cow, or bird flu. I thought it was a clever pun to describe someone who has a habit of unintentionally insulting people.
This comic was really just an excuse to use the new female metrocop model, which had just come out. Although, the differences between the male and female models were subtle enough that some readers missed the joke at first.
Also, I’ve come to realize that a lot of my comics involve two Combine standing around and talking.
