Humbug No. 9

Originally posted on June 25th, 2021


FINALLY! A name reveal!

So, much like Jules comes from a fictional character related to the topic, Robin comes from a little dude you might also know as Puck. It's true! Robin was by far the hardest name to nail because I didn't want it to give too much away, and needed it to be different enough from the other characters. Needless to say, I couldn't really use a famous ghost name or character, as it needed to be unique! So when I ended up in a very abandoned looking website detailing some fairy and spirit like characters by a fella who goes by the name of William last name Shakespeare, it was a done deal.

I was familiar with A Midsummer Night's Dream from watching the National Theatre's production during lockdown, this one:

And I loved it! This adaptation took some liberties, but the story remains the same. Or at least I know that now, since I've actually read the play and loved it, again! Robin was such a fun character and so mischievous, something I believe all teen ghosts should be. My Robin isn't inspired by Shakespeare's Robin, but I like that there's that link. It also allowed me to make some puns with the whole bird name situation. Cute!

Seo law wants funky fresh words so you end up here so: webcomic, comic strip, comic, fun, funny, ghost, ghost stories, Humbug comic, etc
