Damn, it feels like I spent the entire month of November working on this one comic!
What is taking me so long these days???

Anywho:
This is another blast from Diago's past. I wanted to show a little more of his history with the BioPets corporation as well as how Diago relates to his predecessor. Here we have the first time Diago met Baal. Their relationship today is complicated, but it's been shaped by two crucial issues. Can you guess what they are?

I'm surprised I didn't fave this.

Now that I think about it, this does kind of look like your kind of story.

It's got a bit of child abuse, amoral organization, themes of imprisonment... emotionally stunted characters.

Huh. I didn't really think much of it like that...

 

I guess we're more alike than I thought; now that I think about it...

That's really sad, honestly.
Baal didn't say "Beat you up" or "Kill you", just that he wanted Diago on his side of the bars. ("Drag you in here")
And then he confesses that he's lonely... :(
It's a pity, but Baal would never admit that he'd actually like Diago's company, and Diago's power of emotional adaptation allow him to simply shrug off loneliness.
Due to being the more perfected version, Diago would never need or want Baal's companionship the way Baal might crave his.
(Plus they both have issues out the wazoo, so it'd be dysfunctional no matter what)

It is supposed to be just a little sad.

Baal is still totally a villain and he's far from innocent, but I felt I could give him more depth if I could give people a peek into his world and his motivations.
I actually started drawing another Baby Diago comic a long time ago, but it kinda got lost in the mix and I never finished it.

I'd be less sympathetic if someone else was drawing/writing Baal, but for some reason your characters push my empathy buttons.
(Also, I subconsciously compare him to villains in other mediums, and he beats out the mass-murders by quite a large margin)

What would the other Baby Diago comic have been about?

Diago actually comes back to visit Baal a number of times in his childhood just to hang out and I wanted to make a comic about one such visit.
