I'm very excited to get to other characters on here :D But unlike last go-round, I'm not gonna just blast rush through character intros. I have a good amount of pages I'm setting to update though, so it will be a while til we catch up!

Ooo, I saw this page on tvtropes, I like it ^_^
Yeah, pacing can be a tricky thing, it’s too easy to accidentally rush scenes sometimes. One time for my comic when making the good copy of one story (chapter?) I almost missed the fact that one character, who was secretly a bad guy, was introduced in one scene, left, talked to the main characters briefly a few scenes later, and then literally the next scene after that was them revealing they were in fact, a bad guy. I was going through the rough copy like “wait, what? We barely know this lady and she’s just like “boom I’m evil?” what the heck were you thinking past me?” (that one story actually had a lot of scenes I realized could use more build-up before posting).
I can’t wait (bad word choice lol) to see the rest of the cast, I think I see a werewolf there? Werewolves are one of my two favorite mythological creatures ^_^ (dragons are the other, they win top spot on a technicality; they would beat the werewolf in a straight fight. Even if the werewolf bit the dragon and somehow turned the dragon into a werewolf dragon or something, that would only make the dragon stronger, lol)
Edit: (Forgot again), Also the new webcomic avatar looks good! ^_^

Hahaa! Yes, I know what ya mean! Sometimes our inside knowledge gets the better of us, and we think things were set up better in reality because it made perfect sense in our head. And then we read the sequence years later and go "No, that wasn't obvious at all!" I've had moments like that too, kinda similarly I thought some characters showed up in the comic a lot more than they did and was surprised that people didn't seem to get what their deal was, and it's like oh, yeah they're in like 3 pages and have almost no dialogue haha...oops!
Yes! He is a werewolf! :D When I first started, I was almost going for a cast of "Universal Monsters but cuter" thing before I realized that's been done but the expanded crew does still fit that theme in a very loose sense. I love werewolves! (Werewolf dragon would be TOO awesome!) My favorite mythological creature has to be the Alp, the guy with the Brand X Slurpee is one. :D

Ah, so he is! cool ^_^
Huh, I haven’t heard of Alps before, I noticed he had a hat and just thought he had a fun fashion sense, lol.

It's wild to me to come back and read this - I used to read it maybe 10 or 15 years ago and I'm so impressed that you're still going with it. I'm very excited to re-read it in its latest iteration!
