How much of the Phantom characters' characterizations and such do you draw from materials that aren't the ALW show? As I recall Christine has had some decent influence from her Discworld counterpart. Do the character's get any of their traits from the Susan Kay novel (which, if you have yet to read it, I highly enjoyed it.... up to the part where it meets up with where Leroux's novel starts. I enjoyed the sort of backstory Kay created for Erik, but feel rather on the rocks about some of her depictions of events after that)? Does Erik ever pull a Leroux novel moment and refer to himself in the third person? And perhaps most curious to me, do you think any characters that are primarily just from the Leroux novel (the Persian, Sorelli, Philippe de Chagny) still pop up now and again? The Persian was at least to a degree friends with Erik after all, and Philippe was for a time rather disapproving of his brother's falling for Christine. 

I've also really enjoyed the stories this comic has introduced me to. Over the course of this comic I've been inspired to pick up Good Omens, Neverwhere, and watched that Legend film Darkness is from as well as the 2004 Arsene Lupin movie. Just picked up The Picture of Dorian Gray yesterday after rereading some of the pages, very excited to give it a look.

Jareth and Elias from Mahou Tsukai No Yome/Ancient Magus Bride need to meet up. Elias paid for his 15 year old bride (who was a slave at an auction), Chise who likes to live with him. Jareth reordered time, turned the world upside down and just got a lousy t-shirt ;)

here's an interesting thought:

Ash of Evil Dead fame has appeared in Roommates, but not in GnD.  Ash has the same last name as Sarah.  Is it at all possible that they could be related?  I understand she already has a monster-fighting secret agent uncle, but......

also, I would like to humbly propose that, if the intention is to end the series on Sarah and Jareth's first date, that that date actually be at Christine & Raoul's wedding.

Have you ever thought of posting a visual guide to the different stages of a GND comic page? Or a GND page step by step?

Imagining the process makes me curious. Do you draw in pencil first and then scan it? Or do you start digitally? Do you shade in different layers? Do you mask?

So many questions I would love to ask, but I know you're a busy lady and don't want to waste your time.

In creating a master checklist of source material for GND, I discovered that you've used 63 movies, 9 TV shows, 17 books/comics and 1 video game....and I may have even missed some. Dear God.  I guess I know what I'll be doing for the next year of my life.
