Oh, the villains.
I introduced so many of them throughout the course of Robin Hood, and most of them were for one or two parts. Assassins, hitmen, none of which could ascend to higher roles because I knew that I had to try and adhere as closely as possible to having the main characters being based on actual Robin Hood characters. I couldn't kill off Prince, for instance, and introduce a new villain, because I had already used up all of the traditional Robin Hood villains. I wanted something that was completely my own, and could have a new villain every episode and have them be as wild, varied and crazy as I wanted.
Plus I wanted a story that didn't work towards one event. Once Prince was dead in Robin Hood, I had no story, so I knew I had to end it there. And I couldn't drag it out for too long, otherwise he would lose that brilliance that he had about him. So that was another thing I knew I had to have for my next comic: a story that could last for a longer period of time. Something where I could have different story arcs, almost arranged as if in mini seasons of TV.
And lastly, I wanted it to be awesome.
So I got Est. '62. A nice, vague name that I could put in my sig and have people scratching their heads. I mean, what does that mean, seriously? Well, you'll find out that it doesn't have much to do with it, and I only picked it for a few choice reasons.
So, without further ado, Est. '62 (That rhymed. Cool).
