As with the Oniaka City Station in Bad Goods, the space station here kinda took on a life of its own.  In the first arc, once I came up with the concept of the planetoid base of the station, the history pretty much wrote itself. In this case, I just thought “Free Kespa” was a cool name for a space station. I knew I wanted the station to be seedy, but once I came up with the name, I was actually able to figure out a backstory for the station and how it GOT to be the dump that it is.

    This is a masterful page, and you are the king of character design! 🙂

  2. Charlie says:

    That is one kickass alien. I love the sucker-tentacle combination.

  3. Sean Wang says:

    Yeah, I really like this particular alien design. I keep thinking, “If they ever made an action figure, how cool would it be to have the lower body be a big mass of bendy plastic tentacles?”

  4. Houlihan says:

    I meant to ask first is it Dhama or Phama, the “D” and “P” are really close in that font.
    Secondly, I just want to know what Dhama/Phama means, is it a term for like a leader
    or something, or it is just his name?

  5. Sean Wang says:

    It is “Dhama.” I wanted some sort of title for the mob bosses in the Runners universe, like the use of “Don” in The Godfather movies (as in Don Vito Corleone). So I came up with something that sounded like a mix between Don and Dalai Lama (not that the Dalai Lama has any connection to the mob, but the title has a nice air of respect attached to it).
