This month is the fifth anniversary of the Reverend Alpert series! Goodness, how far things have come in five years and twenty stories. Please enjoy this ridiculous comic I did specifically for the occasion, to explain the last face from the emoji meme. Alpert is so reserved all the time, I figured there HAD to be a hilarious story behind that story. (Also, please enjoy the difference between GIMP and MangaStudio.)
And the text version for my blind fans!
Poor Perfection. All she wants is to troll Alpert and get a rise out of him. I believe in you, Perfection! One day, you'll get him good!
Perfection, a muscle-fat demon woman with big rams horns and stripy dark markings down her arms, runs into the panel, wielding a piece of paper. "Hey, Reverend, I drew ya a thing!" Alpert, a distinguished older gentleman with his hair in dreads, turns around. "Oh? Let me see."
He holds the paper and smiles. "I didn't know you--"
The picture is of him making a ridiculous porny face, tongue lolling out. In curly script at the top are the words 'By Perfection.' She has dotted the 'i' with a little heart.
Alpert pauses for a moment. "I see."
He pats Perfection on the back. She's looking at him with a gleeful puppy face, but he says, "I'm so glad you're expressing yourself! Keep it up!"
He leaves the panel, leaving Perfection there with a deeply disappointed look on her face.
"Killjoy!" she shouts after him.
