Off we go! Issue 7 lands, or rather soars, given so much of it will take place up in the air :D

I felt there was a big piece of the HOTWAB puzzle missing as I was doing this webcomic. When I began doing webcomics back in the early 2000's, my first big endeavour was a little hero called 'Go-Bee'. His early adventures are still up on my Deviantart account. The original comic was very slapstick and to get him in to HOTWAB I had to do some serious redesigning, and man how hard is it to make a costume that looks good with horizontal stripes? There has been years of constant redesigns of this guy and the one I used (above) is born from extensive attempts at it. Also the concept of the character was important to me, to really work with ethical transhumanism while being heroic and fun.

Issue 7 was actually not ready as the deadline approached, so I did this new issue 7 in about a month and a bit, using a new way of rendering, done 97% without reference and by really skimping on the backgrounds. It's not perfect but it gives me that window to get the next issue finished (it's going to be huge!) and introduce Go-Bee!

I hope you enjoy :)
