Obscure references in Lumia's Kingdom

In this next part of Lumia's Kingdom I've decided to tackle a large chunk of backstory. As I mentioned on Twitter, I'm trying to make the story as ludicrous as possible (even though there are some serious parts). However, there is a lot of material that I have to cover in this and I've decided that the best way for me to do this is by hammering out a time line. I penciled out a first draft and ran it by my editor/girlfriend to see what she thought. In general, she liked it but mentioned that one aspect of the story didn't match one of the obscure references I had been making throughout the comic.

This inevitably lead her to another question: why hadn't I blogged about the obscure references in the comic at all? A good question indeed. I never really gave much consideration to writing about the hidden bits of Lumia's Kingdom before, even though they have a lot of influence over the world, its characters and even the story.

So, thanks to her suggestion, I will be talking about some of the more obscure references in future posts. I think my first one will be on Tuesday of this week. The subject? Well, you'll just have to wait and see :)
