Well, we'll always be here, always continuing to fight, et cetera. If ever needed.

I made a TVTropes page about the comic. Help in filling it out is appreciated.

You know, I wanted to pull this up because I heard GhostFreeHood! went up against Lartist in super art fight or something.

In their latest art show, with the Protomen there, the three big murals are all related to Act II. They're going up on EBay soon.

It's AWESOME art.

I managed to talk to the comic's creator, Marty Day, on formspring. Here's what i asked him.

Me: In Dead of Summer, was there any particular reason you made Doug Fetterman a bad guy?

Him: Not particularly.

The integration of The Protomen was secondary, as originally, the characters in Book 2 were going to be just a group of people who lived underground. The Protomen's willingness to be in the comic, however, suddenly gave these people names and faces.

And for whatever reason, I thought Fetterman sounded like a dude who'd stab you in the back and attempt a coup. The rest is "history".

Trying to use the Internet Archive to save Dead of Summer and ran into a snag.

Book 2, Comic 34 is missing, and so are later pages D: Does anyone have them?

So, thanks to the combined efforts of lalalei2001 and I, we've managed to locate and track down all of Dead of Summer, including original vs revised pages, special comics, guest art, and in some isolated cases, raw art pages!

(read: I tracked down Marty Day and emailed him asking for help because half of the Dead of Summer site isn't even on the Wayback Machine)
