Although we haven’t ever made this point in the comic, the janitor who cleans up at the end of this story is also Guano Guys sidekick.
This strip was originally drawn by one Chris Beck. His version of Guano Guy had a similar cartoon charm to Ashby’s version. But Chris had too much on his plate and couldn’t commit to this project. However, he introduced me to his MCAT art teacher, who in turn introduced me to Ashby and everything worked out from there.
