ya, adding in all the extra navy watchstanding might make the story drag a bit too much. in any case it turned out far better than i ever expected a doll comic to ever be.

I can definitely agree that a lot of the characters seemed disposable, and the bloodbeast attacks did get repetitive after a while. Usually in a movie of this kind (the better ones at least), the killings are all unique and memorable. The killer uses a machete on one victim, then feeds another into a wood chipper, then another gets a harpoon through the eye. But since the "kills" were all the same in ISBB, they become one big blur of feeding frenzy. Probably could have saved some time by not dramatizing most of those scenes out too much. That way we could get to the kick-ass rumble-tastic finale sooner (which was pretty awesome).

@jamoecw: Originally the script had some of that but only the changing watch scene with Crowley survived to the final draft.

i liked deaths. there was a few going down fighting and a bunch of lambs to the slaughter. they were all slightly different from each other and thus it felt like the characters had more to them than was shown. i'd love to see each one get there own mini story before they die to round them out. the problem is there would be tons of boredom without something thrown in to spice things up (tits work wonders here imo). another thing to help fill the space would be conversational stuff taken from actual navy on watch (ex:https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL2AF13917E4637794), the bureaucratic snafus and weird conversations help keep things from going stale. yep, navy watchstanding, spiced up with a few saucy scenes, before devolving into a b-movie killfest i think would be pretty sweet with good characters. of course the whole navy watchstanding might get non navy people a bit confused, so it might have to be tweaked a tad.

the brevity worked for the most part.

Another note on the characters: I went with a word of advice I got early on when doing comics here on Drunk Duck. Make minor characters stand out by defining them with a single motivation or phrase. Two were "trickster", and "space's greatest lover" among others. A main goal during the writing process was brevity. A lot was cut simply because I didn't want to do a long drawn-out comic whereas I wanted to do short intense horror. If every character gets their time in the sun before you know it there's been 100 pages of exposition and character development and I'm really bored, let alone any readers who've bothered to keep reading.

Hah, I should make a tvtropes page for that!

I've become my own trope? What precisely is the definition of "Pure Bravo" ? I can just see the "pure Bravo" page on TVtropes now. lol! ShastaB24 raises some valid points but I was constrained by genre and length. Victims are supposed to be interchangeable. In the production notes I mentioned I had trouble keeping them separate and confused some in the script where I had a couple die twice. Now I wanted a short script. As characters got to their death scenes I was loathe to part with them and wished I had developed them more especially Roberts. He was imagined as a figure in conflict with the captain like Henry Fonda in the movie Mr. Roberts.
