I was picturing that terrible scene in the second Fantastic Four movie where the payoff of Galactus coming to earth was a storm of swirling clouds. I thought what if Galactus ate the world in a civilized manner with a fork and knife.
Gluttonous was also our first attempt at doing a longer story. Originally it was mostly a silent story but Ashby implored me to go back and write deposition for it. My first thought was to write funny lyrics about Gluttonous to the tune of the Night Before Christmas. Luckily I abandoned that idea.
