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".

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)
