Daytime Nightmare Protagonists


The four protagonists of my friend and I's story, Daytime Nightmare, which we are currently working on right now. It's a comic. The gist of the story is "mentally botched people in a world gone mad do crazy things usually to pay the bills or buy groceries."

Brief descriptions:

Mook Styfawker - former office bitch and current 'odd jobsman'. Cynical, grouchy, over dramatic and full of ridiculous ideas. What he lacks in combat skills he makes up for his unique ability to bullshit people into the dumbest of things. Prone to breakdowns and despises puns.

Darko J-Cupp - "Professional" bounty hunter and hitman. Lacks empathy, rarely shows much emotion, and is painfully blunt and sarcastic. Only keeps people around if they have a genuine use, owe him, or he needs a human shield. Frequently expresses temporary outbursts of insanity stemming from a past event that "fucked his brain meats."

Rena Garon - former dirt poor punk rocker, currently a grave digger. Suffers from a mild case of hallucinations, where she is plagued by some imaginary creature named Joxibar. Can only shut the voice up by "entertaining" it, usually through chaos and destruction. This explains why she goes along with Mook and Darko's antics, despite being a shut in and a loner most times. Is quick to mention the flaws of any plan or situation, but at the same time also thinks most problems can be solved by smashing things.

Billy the Tree - a sentient tree. Addicted to candy, particularly sour ones, and is a totally clueless dumbass. Most of the time seems to be thinking and functioning on a different plain of reality.

Went for rough with this one. Trying to work on a quick style so I can get these future comics made quick enough to have them out relatively regularly. The art style (and the brief descriptions above) may change a bit before the first chapter is released.
