You know, my script called for Maddy to just fall into a big fountain with a statue of giant dice in the center. Like, with water pouring out of the pips? But Psu decided that was too simple and easy to draw, or something, so we concocted this kinda swimming attraction where you can watch cool aquatic aliens do stunts! I’d pay to see that. It's also possible we were both thinking about Rescue Sirens.
Sometimes I have to sell Gunwild really really hard on fun things to put into the comic, sometimes that's cause my ideas just don't always work. But it was pretty darn simple getting him to agree to a pool full of alien mermaids.
