This Dope Rider strip came about through a different process than I normally use. Usually, I first think of a strong visual and build the story around it. In this case, the idea came first. I've found that it's important to my sense of well-being not to admit too many negative influences into my mind, whether from entertainment, the news media, or even people I know who tend to be negative, and I wanted to construct a story based on this thought. I couldn't say much about this concept without getting too wordy and not very entertaining. However, I think the page is redeemed by showing as attendees at the TEOTWAWKI* party every character, major or minor, who has ever appeared in a previous strip.
