Tracker has had a fair amount of “screen time” now, and I’ve got more stories planned for her, but what’s interesting is that for a character playing such a big part in the comic right now, she has never actually spoken to Elwood, the title character. In fact, there have only been six strips in which they’ve both been present. I quite like this, as usually any character who appears in the strip is either there because Elwood has met them, or because they’re part of some unrelated, one-off joke. It’s going to be fun to see what their relationship is like having potentially never spoken to each other before (I do have plans for them meeting properly soon).
On a similar note, you may have noticed that Elwood and Sonny have only ever spoken to each other twice. At some point I decided that they would never really speak to each other. At which point, I wish I hadn’t drawn them talking together – but I guess this was before they really knew each other and one or both of them was making an effort. I don’t know if it’s anything that should be brought up in the strip, but I think there’s an unspoken dislike between them.
Oops, I just spoke about.
