- One of the earliest comic strips I did with Runt and Candy had Runt saying something unflattering about Candy's weight. It was a dumb joke and I honestly should have known better.

BUT.

A little while after it went online, a friend told me how refreshing she found it to have a hero who worries about her weight. She said that she really appreciated how Candy isn't a stick figure, and how much more relatable Candy is as a result.

I'm not sure how much subtlety I've gained over the years with this particular issue, I still feel my references to Candy's body insecurities are still too on-the-nose and a bit crude, but it's part of her character now. Were I a better writer, I'd do the subject better justice. I'm sorry if comics like this cause offense - my intention is completely the opposite. I want to give Candy more humanity. If anybody has any advice on how to improve this or other elements of my writing, my email is mattloffhagen @ gmail.com.

Uh-oh, Candy's got her murder face on.

Fun times ahead!
