Readers may not give it much consideration, but every comic they pick up represents meticulous hours and days of work on the part of the creative and editorial teams. Along the way, a wide-ranging collection of ideas are discussed and sometimes discarded or changed. Additionally, every artist has work they've done that never appears in public. This page will feature some interesting tidbits, as well as artwork that was never, or rarely, seen.
