Another sketch from Smithson
, this one a "kiddie" version of one of the characters (the self-styled campus superhero, Chumucka Man.)
Shaenon has a very simple philosophy for superhero character design: "I believe that all superheroes should wear either mining hats or goggles. Mostly goggles." The ring is my addition, based on a dimly-remembered ring-based candy. The "sour apple" flavor came on a plastic green ring, perfect for pretending to be Green Lantern.
