Chapter 1: Page 019

Introducing Igachi, Sluggy and Billy. Fun fact, Billy is the first character I ever came up with. I was very little, we're talking 3 or 4 here. He's based on a stuffed platypus I had as a kid. You can tell he grew up with me by his potty mouth. Sluggy was actually created by myself and my buddy Steve when we were eight or nine and he started goofing around in a big sleeping bag. Fun times.

I'd say half (maybe) of the Battle Holiday characters are things I've been drawing since I was little. This book is sorta my way of putting some of these really old ideas to bed. No history behind Igachi really. Except that he's an awesome samurai iguana.
