#003 Notes

One of the hardest things about making a HL2 webcomic is that most of the jokes go right over the head of people who've never played the game...and can be a tad obvious to everyone who has. In this comic, I did my best to get a good balance of 'in-jokes' and humor that as many people as possible can appreciate.

So, if you've never played HL2:

1) 'Headcrabs' are an enemy in the game. They're a lot like facehuggers from Alien, only they stay attached and turn you into a zombie.

2) 'Lamaar' is Kleiner's pet headcrab in the game. (He's on the floor in panel 1). There's a line in the game where he says "Lamaar has been de-beaked and is perfectly harmless".

3) In HL2, the 'suppression field' stops people from conceiving babies. In Episode 1, Kliener actually appears on that video-screen, telling people the field is down and everyone should procreate 'for the good of the species'...I just took it a little further.

Few other notes for the eagle-eyed, in Panel 4 Kleiner's guns mysteriously dissapear. They're actually on the floor at his feet...I wanted to make it look like he dropped them, and then covered them up with the textbox by mistake...DOY!
