Alright, so I know it’s been forever since I’ve posted an Applebridge comic page, and many of you are probably disappointed that this one features two new characters instead of returning favorites. The truth is, I started this page in July of 2017, and for whatever reason I just kept stalling out on working on it. The original plan was just to introduce these two in a quick little comic page, but I don’t know… It just didn’t work out that way. So, sorry about the wait and all, but this is at least done now. The next “Snapshot” page will be focused on Oliver and Wren Townsend, though I can’t say how long it’ll take me to get it out.
As for this page, these two are both brand new characters like I’d mentioned. The big redheaded guy is Marko Laine, and the little teal-haired boy is Mickey Madigan. I don’t know at this time if or when we’ll see Mickey again, but I wanted to establish Marko as a new “top” character for the Applebridge cast. Marko will be playing a role in “Sunkissed Youth”, and might also appear in little quick stories like this where he meets and fucks a character. The idea for Marko was to have a guy in Applebridge who was similar to Mirio from MHA or Milo from Pokémon. That is, a larger, beefier guy with a cute, Hergé-esque face. I even went so far as to name him similarly, with a two-syllable name that starts with “M” and ends in “o”. There’d been a lot of talk on my Discord about adding new tops to the Applebridge cast, and hopefully y’all will like this one. Mickey might show up again, too, it’ll kind of just depend on if people like him. At the very least, both should get their own Bio pages eventually, I was mostly holding off on that until this comic was done.
